At first of June, 339 MEPs voted for the top of the warmth engine in Europe in 2035. We’re due to this fact going to develop into, for our particular person mobility, depending on a single vitality. That is all of the extra regrettable for the reason that 100% electrical provide, which might even have been accompanied by the clever growth of fashions working on pure gasoline (an answer sadly dominated out), made it doable to broaden the vary of engines obtainable.
Drivers will due to this fact in the end be on the mercy of will increase within the value of electrical energy, with no different answer left. And this may after all additionally have an effect on their house consumption invoice, whether or not or not they’ve a automobile. In the present day, the state collects greater than 40 billion euros a yr because of gasoline taxes. He won’t be able to afford the posh of doing with out it. We should postpone these taxes and allow us to ensure that at some point, most likely not so distant, the worth per kilometer traveled will likely be at the least as costly in an electrical automobile as it’s at the moment with a thermal automobile.

And for what concrete outcome? Let’s use a calculation, simplified since primarily based on a automobile fleet that may solely change to 100% electrical from 2035, whereas we will assume that from 1% right this moment, it is going to have elevated to a barely greater proportion. Figuring out that 12% of CO2 emissions are generated by passenger vehicles in Europe and that the European automotive market represents roughly 18% of the world market, the measure considerations 18% of 12% of worldwide CO2 emissions, or 2.16%.
About twenty years being obligatory for the fleet to be utterly renewed and an electrical automobile being ecologically extra “virtuous” than a thermal automobile solely from 50 to 70,000 kilometers (its manufacture being extra polluting), i.e. roughly 5 years of use, it’s due to this fact obligatory to start out from the yr 2035 focused by Europe, add these 5 years after which twenty years, to estimate that we are going to have, in 2060, a discount of two.16% in emissions of CO2 globally.
Because of this every year, the discount on the planetary degree will likely be round zero.11%, together with zero.015% of France’s contribution. Worse, not being a mathematician by beginning and having submitted this calculation to extra Cartesian minds, I perceive that in actuality, my calculation is optimistic and in keeping with the figures that we bear in mind, this proportion seems to be… hyper optimistic .
It is also a protected guess that of the 88% of people that right this moment don’t purchase electrical vehicles, some (most likely not negligible) will maintain their petrol or diesel mannequin for so long as doable, resulting in a drop in gross sales of recent vehicles and lengthening the lifetime of extra polluting autos. Electrics requiring much less upkeep, it’s due to this fact all the French automotive business that may undergo, with tens of hundreds of jobs that may disappear consequently.
This all-electric obligation doesn’t bear in mind the doable scarcity of supplies
This all-electric obligation doesn’t bear in mind both the doable scarcity of supplies whose exploitation will explode. Carlos Tavares, the boss of Stellantis (Peugeot, Citroën, Opel, Fiat, Jeep…) already mentions an issue of lithium extraction from… 2024!
On the identical time, this windfall opens up a veritable boulevard for Chinese language producers: because of the will to assist electrical vehicles, these, whose warmth engines are less than European requirements, discover right here an awesome gateway. MG, Aiways and even Hyperlink & Co wouldn’t have landed in France with out state assist. Even the Dacia Springpresent best-seller on the French electrical market, is made in China…
Ought to we concern a danger of electrical energy scarcity in winter?
Regardless of all this, Europe has determined that the overwhelming majority of people who find themselves not satisfied by electrics, or who don’t have any purpose to modify to them (thus far, the dearth of versatility of those fashions could also be unsuitable for sure makes use of, to not point out the at all times low variety of quick charging factors), may have to take action. Whereas each winter, already, we’re threatened with a scarcity of electrical energy on the slightest chilly snap, what’s going to occur when between 6 p.m. and eight p.m., thirty million vehicles will likely be charged on the very second when thousands and thousands of households will activate their heating and home equipment?
Let’s hope that every one these questions will likely be stored in thoughts by the European Ministers of the Setting and can use their widespread sense earlier than making their resolution. Fingers crossed.
