Porsche addresses e-fuels at the IAA Mobility in Munich

Porsche IAA Mobility Munich

At the IAA Mobility in Munich, Porsche, the Volkswagen Group’s sports car brand, is presenting its project in Chile to produce synthetic fuels (e-fuels).

The Volkswagen Group’s stand at the IAA Mobility is all about electric mobility. In fact, the only Porsche on display is the MissionX, an electric hypercar.

However, visitors with a little curiosity can see a model at the side of the stand. This is an animation showing what Porsche is doing in terms of CO2 capture with HIF Global. The project involves mixing hydrogen (obtained by electrolysis, using electricity generated by wind turbines) with carbon dioxide. The result is e-fuel. Porsche wants to use this carbon-neutral fuel in competition, but also in sports cars. And it is not the only player to choose this path. Ferrari shares the German brand’s conviction, as do Toyota, BMW, Renault and Stellantis.

The European Union has agreed to include e-fuels after 2035, provided that it can be proven that these fuels are viable and that they represent an alternative to batteries and hydrogen.
