Others have been experimented with primarily because of their lower or less harmful emissions. Other technologies to power cars abandon internal combustion altogether. During the latter years of the twentieth century many pinned their hopes on gaseous hydrocarbon fuels as a solution to the air pollution caused by vehicle emissions. In addition, known reserves of natural gas are larger than those for oil, while LPG is already produced as a by-product of the refining process. LPG is a mixture of butane and propane.

In addition to alternative fuels for internal combustion engines, alternatives have also extended to alternatives for the internal combustion engine itself. Although after the scope for massive sales of new vehicles, this is generally considered a less attractive option by the motor industry as it means scrapping the existing engine production facilities and losing the expertise in conventional internal combustion technology built up over more than a century. Among alternative powertrains, batteryelectric vehicles have a long history, and recent advances in battery technology are making these increasingly viable.
