Monday is the day of Full Headlights on Autoplus. On the menu of this 13th episode, we come back to the end of thermal engines. Marketing of new vehicles which will therefore be prohibited from 2035. Is it viable? How will motorists, builders and public authorities manage to find common ground? We take stock in this new episode of your podcast on automotive news.

A gesture for the environment

Of course, the major argument, put forward by Brussels and the European Commission, relates to global warming. In fact, it’s hard to deny that. Our planet is dying and the climate in the proper sense of the term is disrupted. As a result, the public authorities have decided. The culprit is called thermal. But is it the right solution to bet everything on electricity and zero emission vehicles in this way ?

In practice, we realize the delay in infrastructure. The ACEA report that we were telling you about considers that it would be necessary to produce 14,000 charging stations per week on a European scale. A necessary quota to ensure this energy transition. We are today less than 3000

Not to mention the additional expenses for buy an electric vehicle rather than its thermal counterpart. Or the problem of autonomy.

An episode tinged with “mechanical sport”

In the rest of the automotive news, it is difficult to miss the two major events that took place this weekend. The least we can say is that motor sports lovers have been served.

On the one hand, the World Endurance Championship. The WEC stopped over for 24 hours at Le Mans. For this 90th edition of the most legendary car race in the world, some 250,000 spectators made the trip to Sarthe. The opportunity to see the different categories compete on the long Le Mans route nearly 14 km. The next meeting of the WEC will take place in Italy, for the 6 hours of Monza. Appointment during which the long-awaited Peugeot 9X8 will make its grand debut.

In parallel with the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Formula 1 caravan has settled in Azerbaijan, in Baku. Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc and the others therefore met this Sunday, June 12 for the 8th round of the 2022 season. If the race was not the most exciting of the century, the results and some racing facts completely revived the championship. Championship which, until now, saw the Monegasque pilot at the top of the driver standings.
