The diesel trend is falling: good news?

Sales of diesel vehicles have never been so low since 2001. In 2018, diesel vehicles accounted for only 36% of sales. The drop is particularly strong in the UK (-30%), Scandinavia (-22%) and Benelux (-22%) compared to 2001. At the end of the day, one should not exultso quickly: electric cars unfortunately do not benefit significantly from this with only 2.6% of sales. The rising share of heavy SUVs is also worrying.
