Diesel vehicle sales could significantly increase
| September 02, 2013 |
New diesel vehicle sales could increase by as much as 10 percent by 2018, according to a report from our sister site, Total Landscape Care.
The report is based on the views of a USA Today expert panel, which looked at reasons the spike in diesel vehicle sales may occur.
Some of the leading causes for the influx in sales, the experts say, include:
Diesel’s fuel economy, which is 20 percent to 40 percent better than gasoline
The “green” factor: Diesel is touted as a more environmentally-friendly choice than gasoline.
Recent improvements to diesel vehicles
Lower lifetime cost: Diesel vehicle models from 2000 to 2011 typically cost $4,000 to $16,000 less than gasoline vehicles over five years
Talk about diesel-electric hybrids, which are already available in select European countries
