Re: Petrol vs Diesel sales figures, in the BS6 era! Petrol dominates
Diesel engines are not the future. Not in India, and thanks to significant contributions of VW, not in the world. I understand its appeal with respect to mileage and pick up. But, I think this trend will continue of diminishing diesel sales resulting in manufacturers limiting diesels only towards top end. With CAFE and RDE norms coming in from 2022-23, SCR tech would become a necessity, raising prices further of diesel variants. Current gen LNT diesels would bring some sales for the next 2 years though. With less R&D investments globally in Diesels, Govt push for EVs and Blended fuels and Regulatory norms, diesels may very well perish. Denying the above facts is like denying climate science, although that is working wonderfully for some!!!
