Europe’s diesel car market is continuing to crumble

West European Diesel car sales trends

Fading demand for diesel powered cars, likely fuelled in large part by an intensifying drumbeat of anti-diesel media reporting and insinuations of forthcoming discriminatory measures specifically aimed against diesel cars like inner city driving bans, have evidently sunk their teeth into a segment that until recently still accounted for just over half of West Europe’s new car sales

That’s the message from exclusive latest AID compiled January car sales numbers showing that 2017 began just in the same manner that last year has ended. Europe’s new car buyers are still dumping diesel fuelled cars for more thirsty petrol powered models. ‘Better safe than sorry’.

Diesels slipped to 47.4 per cent from 51.1 per cent

Hard evidence that today’s intensifying diesel bashing has further sunk its teeth into an already depleting market for diesels comes from AID’s January car sales figures in Western Europe, showing that the sales share of diesels has now slipped to 47.4 per cent from 51.1 per cent during the same month last year.

Drawing attention to the seemingly intensifying loss of market share, that’s a loss of 4.1 percentage points of market share in just 12 months
