“Across Europe, de­ci­sions like these are mak­ing it clear that diesel cars are on the way out.”

— Nik­las Schin­erl, Green­peace Ger­many, to The In­de­pen­dent out of the UK, re­gard­ing Ger­many’s al­lowance for cities to ban some diesel ve­hi­cles. On a re­lated note, it sounds like Volk­swa­gen might buy back new diesel-equipped cars if Ger­man cities do in­sti­tute a ban.

“One of the com­pa­nies re­cently an­nounced that they are get­ting out of diesel. It would be a pity (to marginal­ize diesel). Diesel will play a key role in the fu­ture. We also should know that no­body can change over the week­end. Elec­tri­fi­ca­tion, hy­bridiza­tion, and bat­tery-elec­tric ve­hi­cles will play a very im­por­tant role in the fu­ture, as this is a step into new sus­tain­able mo­bil­ity. How­ever, the in­ter­nal com­bus­tion en­gines too are get­ting real high-tech.”
