NEW DIESELS WILL COME BACK, TOO

Autocar - - A CARVOYANT’S GUIDE TO 2019 TOP TIPS - JC

Ex­pect the harsh at­ti­tude from new car buy­ers to­wards diesel to soften once the penny drops that, un­der the new WLTP emis­sions reg­u­la­tions, the lat­est diesels pro­duce cleaner real-world ex­haust emis­sions than older petrol cars. Pop­u­lar medium and large SUVS rely on fru­gal diesel en­gines to re­main vi­able from the point of view of fuel costs and also CO2 emis­sions. Diesels gen­er­ally will al­ways be more eco­nom­i­cal than petrol cars or petrol hy­brids for mo­tor­way users. Buy­ers who have switched away from diesel may find the real-world econ­omy too com­pelling to not want to re­turn to it.
