We will be doing monthly updates of this chart of SMMT data showing what is happening to diesel sales.
October 2017 update
After dipping – just – under 40% in the smaller sales month of August it rose a fraction in market share in September. This was expected with more fleet buyers in September but encouragingly diesel market share is definitely now well below the 42% to 45% it had maintained in the year up to July 2017
A month after falling below 40% of the market #diesel is in free fall in Germany with just 36.3% of sales & UK looking set to follow https://t.co/PcVzKjcWQ9
