Carmakers wrestle with diesel’s decline

PA Consulting’s Tim Lawrence, head of manufacturing, is quoted in an article in the Financial Times Future of the Car special report. Tim shares his view on the future demand of diesel, and how this is dependent on how fast electrification takes place. 

Tim says: “While the decline seems to be levelling out, legislation across Europe to limit its [diesel’s] use in cities is the next big thing.” 

He continues: “The focus of regulation is on older diesel for now, but full diesel bans will come in over time.” 

Tim also comments on the “uncomfortable juggling act” carmakers are facing, as they try to reduce their emissions and fines by persuading consumers that diesel is better than petrol when it comes to CO2.
