FCA Boss Thinks Diesel is Dead


It sounds like Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) CEO Sergio Marchionne thinks diesel is dead.

VolkswagenĎs massive diesel scandal has already caused several automakers to pull their dieselmodels from the market, and now Marchionneís comments suggests FCA is next. 'The disengagement is happening,' he said. 'Since dieselgate, the share of diesel sales has reduced month by month. Thereís no point denying that, and itís clear that the cost of making diesel reach the new standards is going to become prohibitive.'

His comments donít come as a real surprise, especially since Marchionne is one of the more blunt CEOs out there. One could argue that other automakers are thinking the same, but are just afraid to say it.

Diesel had the advantage with low end torque and fuel economy, which hybrids can also offer so I think diesel is really unnecessary in this day and age. Especially after the whole diesel fiasco where other automakers aside from VW were bring scrutinized.

Did you hear that Bosch recently announced a breakthrough in their technology, which they think can save diesels? Not going to lie, but I don't think anyone is interested in giving them a second chance. There aren't many benefits to diesel anymore than cant be found in electrified powertrains.

Their new tech will slash nitrogen oxide and CO2 output drastically, which is good for countries with increasingly strict emissions standards. But that doesn't really improve fuel economy, which hybrids help with as well. Bosch has a hard fight ahead of them as the world's biggest supplier of diesel-engine technology.
