Diesel Green Cars - See All Sub 100g/km Diesel cars


Diesel cars sales are on the rise in the UK as consumers are more cost conscious and demand more efficient vehicles.  Across Europe, diesel sale amount to nearly half of all new vehicle sold.  Diesels operate on average 30% more fuel efficient than petrol powered vehicles by using higher compression ratios and higher combustion temperatures. 


Diesel still release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and is a non-renewable energy sources but this is usually less so than in petrol cars.  However other compounds such as nitrous oxides and particulate matter is released which have harmful effects to the ozone and humans.


You you may think then diesel cars are not so green then but they certainly can be greener and by buying the most efficient in terms of good miles per gallon (mpg) of fuel and the lowest CO2 emissions will help the environment.
