Talk of city diesel ban sparks rush for the exit

Diesel sales mix falls below scrappage incentive 2009 year

AID compiled data reveals that fast fading interest in diesel powered cars has cut West Europeís diesel car sales share to just 42.8 per cent in August. This marks the way and ahead lowest monthly turnout since the VW scandal broke in September 2015

The severity of Europeís subsequent diesel car sales crisis is graphically underlined by the realisation that West Europeís diesel car sales share has plummeted ever since. 

Evidence of the industryís failure to stem the erosion of Europeís diesel car sales share: This August, compared with the same month just two years ago, West Europeís diesel car share loss has reached a striking 8.1 percentage points, according to AIDís own figures.

A measure of the damage inflicted on this industry is doubly underlined by the realisation that since the 4th quarter in 2015 the regionís previously flourishing diesel car market has already lost 6.7 percentage points of market share. 

Compared with the 52.2 per cent diesel car sales share in the second quarter of 2015, thatís a headlong dive to 45.5 per cent during this yearís second quarter. 

But that is not the whole story. 

The underlying change in consumersí attitudes towards todayís blackened diesel cars appears to be changing faster than statistics can track.
