France, by the voice of N. Hulot, its Minister of Energy Transition, announces the end of diesel and gasoline in 2040, and freezes any authorization of hydrocarbon extraction on our territory.

The British government has unveiled its plan to fight against pollution. Like France, it intends to ban by 2040 the sale of new cars gasoline as diesel.

Scotland wants to stop selling gasoline or diesel cars for 2032.

Germany has decided to stop the production of thermal vehicles by 2030.

Norway has planned the ban on thermal vehicles for 2025. It’s tomorrow …

China, which suffocates under atmospheric pollution, has launched a study to ban thermal vehicles. Last year, 28 million vehicles were produced in China, of which 1% were electric.

As for India, the Indian Minister of Energy said in April that “not a single petrol or diesel car” will be sold after 2030 in the Indian market.

These innovations, and the very positive reception they receive, clearly show us that things are changing. The public is aware of the necessary changes that we must integrate into our energy consumption.

MDI brings a relevant ecological and economic answer in this panel of novelties.

In this desire to stop the consumption of hydrocarbons, we are still talking about electric cars. However, this formula has its limits as we know it: the problem of the capacity of the electrical supply vis-à-vis, among others, the fact that everyone will want to charge their batteries at the same time. Our concept allows greater flexibility, especially to recharge our vehicles outside the hours of high electrical demand thanks to the compressed air stations.

​Moreover, the excessive electrification of the means of transport will ultimately lead to problems of supply of lithium, for the manufacture of batteries, and related geopolitical concerns. This ore is only present in China and South America and in limited quantity. The air is available everywhere. Note finally that the premium of the state to the acquisition of an electric car is 6000 €. If this premium did not exist, sales would collapse immediately. So much so that the court of auditors questioned the relevance of this boost for the 13,555 vehicles sold between January 1 and June 30 this year. The builders themselves, like Carlos Tavares CEOs of PSA doubt the realization of the “all electric” for all these reasons.

The compressed air vehicle appears as “the most ecological and economical car in the world”. This is probably the reason why delegations from all countries are requesting visits, partnerships and license purchases.

Petrol cars will be obsolete in 8 years, says US report
No more petrol or diesel cars, buses, or trucks will be sold anywhere in the world within eight years. The entire market for land transport will switch to electrification, leading to a collapse of oil prices and the demise of the petroleum industry as we have known it for a century.
