DEATH OF ICE?

Car (South Africa) - - TECH -

The au­to­mo­tive land­scape is chang­ing and the in­ter­nal­com­bus­tion en­gine (ICE) is un­der threat. France has an­nounced that the sale of any ve­hi­cle equipped with an ICE will be banned from 2040, de­spite hy­brids ac­count­ing for to­tal sales of only 3,5% and EV for just 1,5% in the Euro­pean coun­try. In the same vein, Volvo has an­nounced that all its ve­hi­cles launched by 2019 will fea­ture an elec­tric mo­tor (in a hy­brid or pure elec­tric ap­pli­ca­tion). If this trend catches on quickly, most new cars sold in 10 years will be elec­tri­fied.
