Automakers and policymakers like to point out the local reduced pollutant and CO2 emissions that the use of electric vehicles would allow, and the improvements in the environmental quality of urban areas that such use could bring.
However, the planet remains largely absent from official speeches. Economic and political decision-makers consider it to be of little concern to them, apart from what their carbon footprint says. In particular, they do not consider themselves responsible for the effects that their mobility decisions may have on water, air and soil pollution, on damage to the biosphere and on the need for exhaustible resources at the planetary level.
AEQUEO NOW technology fills the void in official discourse on the planetary effects of vehicle propulsion technologies. It deals with the full range of impacts that motor vehicles have, during their life cycle, on the environment and resources around the world. It respects the climate, the planet and current and future generations. It aims for responsible mobility, able to save the climate and the planet. It can also be implemented quickly, to cope with the climate and environmental emergency.
The two main characteristics of AEQUEO NOW technology are the thermal eco-engine and the synergic coupling, which give it an overall efficiency (well-to-wheel) superior to those of any other propulsion technology – this even if the internal efficiency (tank-to-wheel) of the sustainable thermal engine does not reach that of the electric motor.
