  • Sales of Hybrid Cars Soar as Diesels Plunge by Almost a Quarter
    05 Jun 2018

    Sales of plug-in hybrid cars soared by almost three-quarters year on year in May, dramatically outstripping the 3.4% overall growth in new car registrations. Nearly 4,000 plug-in hybrids were bought last month, up from 2,301 in May 2017. Registrations of purely battery-powered cars were up by nearly a fifth, to 1,099. The numbers are still a small fraction of the total 192,649 cars bought in the month but all electrified vehicles combined took a record market share of 5,8%. However, the demand for diesel cars continues to wane in the face of environmental and tax concerns. Diesel reg...

  • Volvo Will Dump Diesel Starting With Next S60 Sedan
    18 May 2018

    Volvo will not offer a diesel in its new S60 sedan, which will be released this spring. The new S60 will be available with a range of four-cylinder gasoline engines as well as two versions of its gasoline-electric plug-in hybrid powertrain.  This move comes as Volvo accelerates its shift toward electrified powertrains and away from diesels, which accounted for almost 80 percent of its sales in Europe last year. Diesel sales have taken a hit in Europe because of potential bans on older, more polluting cars with the powertrain and the high cost of improvements to ensure that new d...

  • Nissan will gradually withdraw from diesel car market in Europe
    07 May 2018

    Japanese car manufacturer Nissan will gradually lower the number of diesel cars that it sells in Europe reducing it to zero. This is a further sign of the weakening demand for this type of cars as customers worry about tax rises, bans, and restrictions related to diesel in many countries.  A spokeswoman from Nissan said that there would be a gradual withdrawal of diesel vehicles in Europe. A source last month had said that Nissan would cut hundreds of jobs at its Sunderland plant, which is Britain’s biggest car factory. The car making industry is facing a global regulatory crac...

  • Decreasing Demand for Traditional Cars Hurts Auto Makers
    01 May 2018

    Auto sales slowed in April because of the continuing decline in demand for compact cars and sedans are setting a dark tone as car makers head into the summer selling season. Car sales decreased more than 5% this month compared with the same period last year, analysts think this is partially because there were two fewer selling days this month.  Oil prices going up and credit conditions getting tougher create concerns for car maker’s executives. Pickup trucks and sport-utility vehicles continue to perform well amid relatively low fuel prices. But gasoline is continuing...
