Should you be afraid of diesel?

Diesel as a car fuel is increasingly questioned throughout the world because of its harmful emissions.  This is illustrated by tougher American and European laws (Euro VI standard) which limit NOx emissions (nitrogen oxides).

The German association of the automotive industry (AVD) has found the solution build cleaner diesel engines and meet these new regulations. Indeed, the AVD proposes to use AdBlue® which, combined with a catalyst (SCR), would allow to reduce the quantities of NOx up to 90%.

In France, diesel sales have been at their lowest level since 2009

Sales of diesel cars have fallen sharply since the Volkswagen scandal.  In 2016, new vehicles purchased by French households should represent 50% of the year purchases.  During the first quarter of 2016, 46.6% of the sales of new vehicles were diesel powered. This marks the end of the glory years of diesel in France knowing that diesel accounted for more than 70% of the vehicles over the past decades.

Several reasons are given by the CCFA, the Committee of French automakers, to explain this unforeseen drop. The main issue raised is the Volkswagen scandal. The negative political discourse on diesel also impacted car diesel owners who worry about being allowed to drive during pollution peaks. Finally, the households’ economic situation has contributed to this decline, given that petrol models are significantly less expensive and more convenient to move around the city.
