The findings presented in this report result from the work of a group of independent experts. Under no circumstances, do these findings reflect the position of the organisations to which these different experts belong. Those taking part in this study agree that perspectives for the private vehicle – fuel combination proposed in this road map are similar to those embraced or potentially embraced by French car manufacturers.

The views provided here integrate currently predictable changes in terms of not only technological, organisational, economic and societal advances, but also possible developments in the fight against climate change and energy security between now and 2050. For this reason, regular updates of this road map will be edited to integrate technical breakthroughs strongly impacting the perspectives proposed in this road map. This exercise is specifically aimed at grading research priorities.
