Decline of the Diesel

old fashioned diesel pump

With so much focus on reducing carbon emissions there has been a great drive towards cleaner motoring.

 

Along with the introduction of the T-Charge in London and with other cities to follow suit, electing to drive a diesel car may end up costing you more in motoring that you might think.

You wouldn’t be alone either, as according to reports, the number of new diesel cars that are being sold has dropped for the seventh consecutive month.

 

In comparison to the same month last year, sales of cars have dropped by 12.2%, diesel cars specifically have dropped just under 30% since the same time last year.

 

The drop in demand has been blamed on a dip in consumer confidence despite the many scrappage scheme available from different companies. The number of new cars being registered is back to the same sort of figures last seen in 2013, sales are down almost 5% this year so far.

 

With the doubts creeping into a lot of consumers’ minds about the expected lifespan of diesel cars, whether they will face any possible future ban, whether they’ll lose too much money, whether drivers will face restrictions or penalties for driving a diesel car, are all thought to also be behind the decline.
