The top flight plans that these new sustainable fuels have the same energy density as current fossil fuel gasoline, which means that cars will be as fast as they are now.
It is estimated that there will be 1.800 billion cars on the road by 2030, with only 8% of those battery electric vehicles (BEVs) pure, while internal combustion engines will remain essential for air and sea travel, as well as transportation.
