The popularity and availability of clean diesel is growing. Given that more consumers are turning to the diesel option for their cars, pickups and SUVs, the recent growth in availability of diesel at local gas stations should come as no surprise. Over half of all retail sites in the U.S. today offer diesel fuel.
There has been a lot of speculation about the role of unproven energy technologies and the transformation to energy sources like electric and natural gas vehicles in the emerging green economy, DTF's report "Diesel: Fueling the Future of a Green Economy" clearly highlights that clean diesel will play a vital role in the green economy both today and in the future generations of energy and transportation.
With more currently available diesel vehicle options for their cars, pickups and SUVs, diesel auto sales are expected to significantly increase. The report predicts sales of clean diesel automobiles in the U.S. to increase from just two percent in 2009 to 8.5 percent in 2020. The report notes that other independent projections forecast domestic diesel car sales to increase to nine percent by 2013 (Ricardo) to 10-15 percent by 2015 (J.D. Power).
The report also highlighted another indicator of increased current and future diesel sales - the percentage of gas stations offering diesel fuel has increased from 35.4 percent in 1997 to 52.1 percent in 2007. Over half of all retail sites in the U.S. today offer diesel fuel.
