Accelerating the promotion of methanol vehicles is enough to show that the future of new energy vehicles is not only electric

Recently, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology clearly stated that it would accelerate the development of methanol vehicles.

It can be seen that methanol vehicles will have a large proportion in the new energy vehicle market in China in the future.

Methanol vehicles, as the name suggests, are vehicles that rely on methanol fuel.

Compared with traditional fuel vehicles, methanol vehicles have no difference in daily use.

In addition, compared with traditional fuel vehicles, methanol has a higher calorific value and energy efficiency, and its carbon dioxide emissions are also significantly reduced.

There is even a view that the explosive power of methanol is better than that of diesel, enough to show that it is more powerful than gasoline vehicles with the same displacement.

Because of this, many large ships also use methanol as fuel.

In addition, compared with hydrogen energy, methanol is also more convenient in transportation and storage.

In terms of cost, methanol is about 1.97~2.37 yuan per liter, far lower than gasoline and natural gas.

According to the data, the number of methanol vehicles in China has exceeded 30000. A number of cities in Guizhou, Shanxi, Shaanxi, Gansu and Shanghai have carried out methanol vehicle pilot work as early as 2012.
