    Nissan To Slowly Transition Away From Diesels in Europe

      Nissan joins Toyota in this trend

    Nissan is joining Toyota in gradually ending the sale of diesel vehicles in Europe.

    “Along with other manufacturers and industry bodies we can see the progressive decline of diesel but we do not anticipate its sudden end in the short-term. At this point in time and for many customers, modern diesel engines will remain in demand and continue to be available within Nissan’s powertrain offering,” a Nissan spokeswoman told Reuters.

    “In Europe, where our diesel sales are concentrated, our electrification push will allow us to discontinue diesel gradually from passenger cars at the time of each vehicle renewal.”


    Sales of diesel vehicles have been on a sharp decline for the past year due in part to rising taxes and possible bans looming. Analysts believe this trend will continue in 2018.

    Last month, a source revealed to Reuters that Nissan is planning to lay off hundreds of workers at its Sunderland plant due to falling diesel vehicle sales.

    Totally makes sense, Hybrid, EV and Petro can easily replace Diesel except in Semi, medium duty and person trucks for pulling. Cars I see no reason for them anymore.
