Poll: All drive systems of today will still be relevant in 10 years
Automotive supplier Bosch wanted to know: What types of drive systems do European citizens regard as relevant for the future? Gasoline, diesel, battery electric drive or fuel cell? Surprise: The balance will shift, but all four species will remain topical.

Cars with conventional engines can also be driven climate-neutrally. The key to this is synthetic fuel, the so-called eFuels - these are produced from renewable hydrogen and with CO₂, from the ambient air. On average, 57 % of the survey participants agree with the statement that politics should promote eFuels through tax incentives.

The importance of the car and its significance for mobility will not change in the near future. Around 60 % of the respondents in the investigated geographies cannot imagine doing without a car. And of the remaining 40 %, the vast majority are only prepared to do without a car in part. In rural areas, the approval rate for a car is 77 %. Incidentally, the same applies to the generation of 18 to 29-year-olds, around half of whom also give a clear vote for a car.

While all respondents in Germany (61 %) and Great Britain (47 %) cited high flexibility as the most important reason for a car, the French (41 %) need it above all for work. In contrast, the Italians surveyed (55 %) prefer the car to other, for them more cumbersome forms of mobility.

Bosch is approaching the future of the drive system with an open mind for technology. The technology and service company is pursuing the vision of CO₂-neutral and virtually emission-free traffic in several ways. On the one hand, the company has set itself the goal of becoming the market leader in electromobility with battery and fuel cell powered vehicles. On the other hand, Bosch continues to develop combustion engines. After all, gasoline and diesel can also be driven in a climate-neutral manner with renewable synthetic fuels. By 2030, Bosch expects that around one third of all newly registered vehicles worldwide will be purely electric. Two thirds of all new vehicles will still be powered by a combustion engine, many of them as hybrids.
