The sales of diesel cars threatens hybrid and electric cars from U.S.

The sales of diesel cars threatens hybrid and electric cars from U.S.

It seems that Volkswagen group has bet on diesel cars overseas development, because the sales of cars with compression ignition engines increase in the U.S. Even more than expected U.S. analysts.

Thus, the first quarter of 2012 show an increase of 35% over the same period in 2011, which, taking into account the evolution of 27% from 2011 compared to 2010, leads us to the conclusion that Americans are increasingly tempted by such efficient cars because of fuel prices.

On Monday, the situation looks downright explosive: in January the increase was of 21.2% compared to 2011, in February by 42.9% and in March by 39.6%. That while the increased electric and hybrid cars segment was about at the same level (11.4% in January, 55.4% in February, 39.6% in March), and the total sales of new cars in the U.S. increased with only 13.4 in the period January-March 2012.

Thus, taking into account the federal standards, which require obtaining in 2025 an average fuel consumption of 54.5 mpg, combined with more favorable prices for diesel cars than for electric and hybrid, it becomes clear that almost all car manufacturers will adapt the demand for north American market.
