The future for diesel powered cars in the U.S. is promising

Posted By on April 30, 2012


Interesting article with perhaps a slightly bias option … but in an article today Bosch projects that by 2015 one in ten new cars sold in the U.S. will be powered by a diesel engine.

… data from CNW Research says that with greater awareness of new clean diesels, and a lower cost premium for diesel fuel against gasoline–unlike 2008, when gasoline soared to $4 but diesel passed $5 in some markets–public receptiveness to choosing diesels is at new highs.

The attractive features are fuel efficiency up to 30 percent higher, and the convenience of a driving range up to 700 miles. For owners who analyze total cost of ownership, diesels can also provide lower lifetime running costs despite their higher initial purchase price and more expensive fuel–due to their higher residual values.
