Whichever way latest AID compiled West European car sales numbers are analysed, underlying demand for diesel powered cars is now falling a great deal faster than even pessimists would have projected only a year ago

AIDís exclusively compiled sales figures for March reveal that consumersí underlying demand for diesel fuelled passenger cars now appears to be falling like a stone. 

That at least is the message from West Europeís diesel car sales in March, showing that sales didnít just fall but plunge. 

West Europeís March diesel car sales, a case in point, slumped by a quarter. 

Drawing attention to the severity of todayís galloping diesel car sales famine in Europe, thatís four-times faster than the already sharp 6 per cent March sales dip recorded for the overall car market.

Yet another tell-tale sign as to the segmentís downward velocity, the regionís March diesel car sales share slumped to just 36.7 per cent, down from 45.4 per cent during the same month only a year ago. 

This picture, suggesting that Europeís seemingly alarmed car buying public is continuing to switch from tarnished diesels to the Ďsafe-havení of petrol-powered models in droves, is echoed equally loud and clear in this yearís greatly changed first quarter car market.
