Death of the diesel, while hybrid sector soars

In recent news the UK car market has enjoyed a considerable increase of 23.1%, with the most intense sector rises being alternatively fuelled vehicles such as hybrid and electric.

Why Hybrid? The hybrid model attracts consumers due to its advantage of consuming less fuel and emitting less CO2 than a comparable petrol or diesel-engine vehicle. It has also been linked to the decline in demand of diesel vehicles and the natural trend to switch to greener engines.

Bye to diesel. Since the emission scandal Toyota has announced that they will not be selling diesel passenger cars as of next year. People are naturally swaying towards the Hybrid models which are working in Toyota’s favour. Recent UK poll data shows that half of the UK drivers want to ban diesel cars from cities due to the affect it’s having on air pollution.

The hybrid now accounts for 52% of Toyota’s total car sales which they expect to increase further next year due to new hybrid models being released 2018/19.
