Diesel engines: Is this the end?
The future of diesel seems to be doomed since the latest regulations on air quality
European car registrations fell by 7.1% year-on-year in April and with a sharper drop on diesel.
Diesel car registrations dropped 15% from last April. That drop is due partly to the Dieselgate scandal as well as the new air quality regulations.
The decline in diesel registration led to the drop in the leadership of this fuel from 50% down to 46% of the market.
In the UK, the total amount of registrations dropped by 19.8%, this is most likely due to the new VED rates introduced at the start of the month.
