Diesel car sales April 2018 Europe plus trend history

Although it is not a trend that has changed the diesel car marketís underlying downward trajectory, Aprilís diesel car sales figures, led by a couple of major markets, suggest nevertheless that during the second half of this year the underlying rate of decline from diesel cars could be slowing

AIDís own monthly compiled numbers suggest that in some markets the use of heavy incentivising for the scrappage of older diesels since late last year has likely helped accelerate the switch from diesel to mainly petrol powered cars. 

If true, the flipside of these trends is that the inevitable end of these financially tempting incentives will also ring in a potential slowing in the rate of diesel desertion. 

Whatever view prevails, AIDís own Aprilís diesel car sales data already points to
moderating rates of decline from diesel cars in some of West Europeís major car markets

It suggests that for diesel cars the
very worst of the severe bloodletting could well be over. 

One of Aprilís clear positive features is that the steep underlying monthly falls that have dogged West Europeís fast-ebbing diesel car market since late 2015 show first faint signs of moderating . 

However, AIDís market observers, who on a monthly basis have now checked the pulse rate of Europeís diesel car market since the diesel emissions scandal broke in September 2015, concede that it is still far too early to know yet whether Aprilís less severe loss of market share is a mere blip or the beginning of a trend.
