A Lamborghini that will run on fuel from air Lamborghini has said that every car it produces from 2024 will be powered by a motor, but Lamborghini has not given up on the internal combustion engine (ICE) just yet. 2 types of battery and gasoline hybrid cars will be produced.
Lamborghini, the exclusive home sports car brand from Italy, has promised that every model will be a hybrid from 2024, and it is scheduled to start producing a fully electric car in 2028. But its V8, V10, V12 ICE engines are also expected to continue to be used for several years. Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Lamborghini, said: “After the production of hybrids, we will wait to see if it will be possible to deliver cars with ICE around 2030.”
“One possibility is that cars with artificial fuel engines will be allowed to continue,” he said. Porsche, under the umbrella of Lamborghini’s parent company VW Group, is conducting research and development on taking carbon dioxide and hydrogen from the air, creating methanol and using it as an artificial fuel.
Because artificial fuel is used, carbon dioxide is not added to the atmosphere, so it is called net-zero fuel. Synthetic fuel is expensive. But the internal combustion engine can still be used. For those who buy and drive an expensive car like Lamborghini, they will drive regardless of the high cost of artificial fuel. Porsche is building a synthetic fuel plant in Chile. The artificial fuel produced by the factory will be used only for Porsche models that use ICE.
Production will begin in 2022 and will debut in Porsche’s Mobil 1 Supercup race cars. He said that Porsche model cars that use Porsche’s ICE will also be sold. I’m sure the price won’t be too low. The first phase aims to produce 55 million liters of artificial fuel per year by 2024. The second phase will produce up to 550 million liters per year.
