GERMANY CO2 from new car sales trendGermany’s average April CO2 emissions from cars rise to 130.4g/km

The actual percentage change in the average CO2 emission from cars in Germany this April may still look tiny, but the 1.6 per cent increase against the same month last year to 130.4 g/km is likely seen by car makers with dismay

Peter Schmidt AID Newsletter Journal Report WarwickBosch rides to the rescue of dying diesel cars

"Whichever way recent diesel car sales trends in Western Europe are looked at, few autoindustry observers would disagree with the view that today the region’s diesel car market is looking very sickly. Moreover, while the house is burning, none of the carmakers appeared ready to extinguish the fire. Until now, that is"

West European Truck sales Jan-Jun 2017March truck business slackens, pulled down by shorter working month   

West Europe’s March sales of heavy trucks in the 16t and above weight category dropped 5.5 per cent. Significantly, the region’s truck market, echoing the picture already seen in the March car market, was expected to suffer a notable setback because of last month's loss of between one and two working days

|  DIESEL TECHNOLOGY   
Bosch diesel NOx technology Bosch NOx breakthrough said capable of saving diesel car future   

Bosch, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of diesel engine components and widely recognised as the premier authority on light-duty diesel engine technology, says it has made a genuine breakthrough in terms of neutralizing diesel engine emissions by drastically reducing vexed NOx emissions from diesel cars to a mere fraction of the permitted post 2020 levels in EU Europe

In a world where status-rich prestige-sector cars appear to attract more and more willing buyers the world over, it hardly comes as a surprise to discover that the manufacturing plants of Germany’s leading prestige car makers have been working right up to their installed capacity limits

|  EUROPE MARCH SALES  | EUROPE
March sees 6% car sales dip, thanks chiefly to fewer working days  

March car sales in Western Europe fell by a comparatively steep 6 per cent, but the dip in what ranks as one of the biggest car sales months in an average year is due mainly to one off special factors 

  | Europe’s Diesel car sales share slumps to 14 year low

|  DIESEL SALES  | UK  
October diesel car sales Western Europe data and trendsFree fall in UK diesel car sales continued in March  

The UK’s previously flourishing market for diesel cars, tormented by rapid fire flak from virtually all directions, now looks a mere shadow of its former self. Judged on the sector’s most recent progress, the damage endured this March alone tempts the view that the UK’s progressively limp diesel car sales balloon remains on course to crash down to earth sooner rather than later
