Diesel Car Market Share Fell In March In Germany | CleanTechnica

Following the recent ruling by a court in Germany that cities there have the right to ban diesel cars as a means of improving air quality, the share of the country’s total auto market held by diesel cars has been falling sharply.

During March of 2017, the market share held by diesel cars apparently fell by around 25%, according to the KBA, following on market share losses of 19.5% in February and 17.6% in January. All of that being said, diesel car sales in Germany are still fairly high.

This drop in market share held by diesel cars has led to local manufacturers such as Volkswagen beginning to offer special incentives meant to sustain sales, such as the so-called “Germany Guarantee.”
