Operating through the IFPEN Transports Energie Carnot Institute, IFP Energies Nouvelles (IFPEN) has published the findings of an economic, energy and environmental study into French road transport technologies in the lead-up to 2040, co-funded by the ADEME.
[currently being updated] All-electric vehicles operate with a battery and an electric motor. The large-capacity battery has to be recharged with the vehicle stationary at a charging station. Environmental benefits Challenges to overcome Progress in terms of range and costs A still limited market
[currently being updated] Connected vehicles, driverless vehicles, new mobility needs: a revolution is under way in the world of transport. These new smart transport methods explained. What is a connected vehicle? The advantages of connected vehicles What does the future hold for connected vehicles? Driverless vehicles
[currently being updated] The vehicle is equipped with a combined IC/electric powertrain system and two energy storage systems: a fuel tank and a battery. Energy use optimization Good environmental performances Technical and economic challenges
[currently being updated] Since they were invented, cars have mainly operated with 4-stroke internal combustion engines. In Europe, these have either been gasoline (spark ignition) or diesel engines. Major technological progress has made it possible to increase the efficiency of IC engines in order to save fuel and significantly reduce
