Driving Towards Carbon Net Zero: Stellantis’ eFuel Testing on 28 Million Engines

2 mins read

There are plans by Stellantis to test eFuels on 28 different engines to reduce carbon emissions from the 28 million internal combustion engines that the company has built in Europe since 2014. A synthetic fuel made from captured atmospheric CO2 & renewable energy is called eFuel. Without waiting for new EV infrastructure or replacing their cars, the goal is to offer existing ICE vehicle owners an affordable & early option to decarbonize their vehicles.

It’s the commitment of Stellantis to sell only battery electric vehicles (BEVs) in Europe by the end of the decade. An up to 90% reduction in CO2 emissions can be provided by the eFuel solution. Leading to a reduction of up to 400 million tons of CO2 in Europe from 2015 to 2050, up to 28 million  Stellantis vehicles can potentially use eFuels. The aim of Stellantis is to achieve carbon net zero by 2038, as outlined in their Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan.

Without loss in performance, eFuel is designed to be used by ICE-powered cars. 28 engine families built from 2014 to 2029 for both gasoline & diesel engines are being tested & validated by Stellantis. Among others, the comprehensive validation protocol includes tests on tailpipe emissions, startability, engine power, reliability endurance, oil dilution, fuel tanks, fuel lines, & filters. The potential to reduce up to 400 million tons of CO2 emissions in Europe from 2025 to 2050, lies in the use of eFuel in up to 28 million tons of Stellantis vehicles.

An opportunity to reimagine energy sovereignty by redefining the energy sourcing map based on the availability of wind & solar belts is presented in the form of the production of eFuel. More than €30 billion is being invested by Stellantis through 2025 in electrification & software to deliver BEVs that meet customer demands.
