SMMT Mounts Robust Defence Of Diesel Vehicles
Key Facts About Diesel Vehicles
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has mounted a robust defence of diesel vehicles, saying they play an important role in helping improve air quality in towns and cities, and in tackling climate change.
The SMMT has produced a list of key facts about diesels which, despite their recent bad press, saw British car buyers register almost a quarter of a million new diesel cars in March 2017 – an all-time record.
Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, commented: “In addition to their important contribution to improving air quality, diesel cars are also a key part of action to tackle climate change while allowing millions of people, particularly those who regularly travel long distances, to do so as affordably as possible.”
Here’s a breakdown of the SMMT’s reasons why diesel vehicles are still a popular choice for consumers and businesses, and how diesel vehicles still have a role to play in your fleet.
