Mapping The Death Of Diesel Across Europe

 

Diesel-powered cars in Europe are losing their momentum.

 

Statista's Raynor de Best notes that, according to the latest numbers from the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA),diesel's market share decreased to 45.7 percent of total car registrations in the EU-15. Diesel sales traditionally were higher than in the U.S., due to a 30 percent tax advantage. Consumer confidence, however, is decreasing following the Volkwagen Group's emission-cheating scandal, tightening European emission standards and a potential ban from city centers.

I do yes, its almost time to replace my old 2.2 CDTI ECU remapped civic (200bhp, as quick out the gates and as powerful as the flagship Type-R but returns 55mpg all day long), While the new civic has a CDTI option, we suspect in the UK, most of them will be taxed to hell in the next few years, im looking to go back to petrol i think. My civic not being penalised as the honda 2.2 direct rail CDTI engine is one of the cleaner ones, but im definately reconsidering.

 

hybrid, no ta.
