As if to assure Dodge fans that it really isn't over for the Charger and the Challenger, Stellantis released this video of a concept they are working on.

The race to improve thermal efficiency on ICE. To be dair Mazda claims around 43% on its Skyactiv X, and trying to reach 56% in its Skyactiv 3. Other companies are aiming at 50%.

None of these will match EVs and that's the reason why countries are rushing to it. Electricity to mechanical movement is 90 to 99% efficiency. If we factor the burning of carbon fuels in a power plant, to electrical generation and transmission across lines, to being charged and released on a battery to the electric motor and to the wheels you can still be seeing 60% thermal efficiency. The burning of carbon based fuels can lean towards cleaner natural gas and be substituted to solar, wind, hydro and nuclear.
