ICE (Internal Combustion Engine)

An Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) is a type of engine that generates power through the combustion of fuel, typically gasoline or diesel, mixed with air inside the engine. In contrast to electric vehicles (EVs), which derive power from stored electricity in batteries, vehicles with internal combustion engine’s rely on the burning of fossil fuels to produce motion. While EVs require charging infrastructure to replenish their batteries, ICE vehicles need refueling stations dispensing petrol or diesel. The transition from ICE vehicles to EVs is driven by concerns over the releasing of CO2 into the atmosphere, air pollution and other greenhouse gas emissions. As the adoption of EVs grows, the demand for EV charging infrastructure increases, signaling a shift away from the conventional refueling practices associated with ICE vehicles towards more sustainable and environmentally-friendly transportation.
