What are the effects of diesel on the environment?

The German car industry saw and sees the controversial technology as a low-CO2 saver. According to industry association VDA, diesel is more efficient and more energetic than gasoline engines h–ītten a h—Üheren by about 15 percent efficiency. According consumed diesel models also less fuel. Because CO2 Aussto–Į h–īngt on consumption, that come from the exhaust of diesel cars bottom line less of the greenhouse gas - even if the CO2 content per liter of diesel is tats–īchlich h—Üher. Closed for some auto experts is the "climate-friendly Diesel", however a myth because diesel fuel when burned even a little more carbon dioxide per liter aussto–Įe than gasoline. Thomas Koch, head of the Institute closed for piston engines at the Karlsruhe Institute closed for technology, says the Middle l–īgen CO2 emissions in diesel by 15 percent lower than for gasoline. especially gesundheitssch–īdliche nitrogen oxides (NOx), which is currently dominated by the discussions - despite the lower consumption more pollutants are produced in the diesel engine but.

What tax advantages and disadvantages I as diesel drivers have?

Benefits (yet): Exactly 18.41 cents per liter of fuel (47.04 cents 65.45 cents gegen—Ćber) pay diesel drivers while refueling less energy tax. Overall, the fuel is g—Ćnstiger about 20 cents per liter. Still, the votes to abolish the so-called diesel privilege increasing. So the Gr—Ćnen have made the abolition of the diesel privilege as a condition closed for a m—Ügliche government participation - whether the CDU and FDP received tats–īchlich out is still unclear v—Üllig. But the Federal Court of Audit (BRH) called in a report on financial development, —Ćberdenken taxation.

Driving ban for diesel vehicles

Many St–īdte have k–īmpfen because of the diesel fumes with high nitric oxide levels.

The main reason why they met on August 2, 2017. anticipated Diesel summit in Berlin. Federal Environment Minister Barbara Hendricks (SPD) as well as many state politicians calling for a blue plaque to identify allegedly clean diesels - it should be reserved solely for engines with exhaust emission standard Euro 6th Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt (CSU) is how many more Union politicians against it. You will see the image of the diesel engine by such Ma–Įnahme more gef–īhrdet. Driving bans of up to 13 million diesel k—Ünnten be affected.

By Umr—Ćstung. About the way but there is disagreement. The manufacturers want to provide by the end of 2018 a total of 5.3 million vehicles with a software update that is engaged in the in the engine management and emission control. Thus, the NOx Schadstoffaussto–Į to be reduced by 25 to 30 percent. M—Ügliche disadvantages are a erh—Ühter consumption and decreased performance. Proved that's not.

Are Diesel verbrauchs–īrmer than gasoline?

Diesel consume about 15 to 20 percent less fuel than gasoline. However, the energy density of diesel is also h—Üher, whichever is known from school energy conservation. In addition, the Environmental Aid criticized the technically m—Ügliche consumption advantage of diesel will —Ćberkompensiert the high weight in demand SUVs. Moreover, the production of diesel engines consuming, entst—Ćnden also CO2 drawbacks was. Especially modern gasoline engines are more efficient than fr—Ćher, thanks to so-called full hybrids, so cars that k—Ünnen drive both the combustion and the electric motor. However, this h–ītten turn k–īmpfen with particle emissions, the Karlsruhe motor expert chef warns.

How do the sales develop?

Germany was absolute diesel land to 2016: Last year, nearly all newly registered car was a Selbstz—Ćnder. The ongoing debate about emissions and driving bans, however, has gef—Ćhrt to a dramatic sales loss - in October 2017 were, according to the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA), only 34.9 percent of the total of 272,855 newly registered cars diesel, nearly ten percent less than a year earlier. Gasoline, however, are more popular than ever, their share of new registrations rose in October 2017 by a whopping 18.8 to 60.9 percent. however, rose sharply again, the number of alternative fuel vehicles: The hybrid cars, it rose by 67.8 percent (8,410 cars), on electric cars by 86.8 (2,180 cars), on fl—Ćssiggasbetriebenen and natural gas-powered cars were it 24.6 and 34.8 percent. Overall, the number of newly registered cars were 3.9 percent informed about the previous year.

What about with prices and discounts?

Whereas the diesel journey?

The diesel-rate decreases, get the discounts. Schn–īppchenj–īger k—Ünnten get their money.

The diesel Abwrackpr–īmie closed for Older vehicles has driven the level of discounts in Germany to a record high. Hei–Įt closed for those who want to buy a diesel: Currently Schn–īppchen are to be made. The discount index of the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) showed in September 2017 152 points a historical H—Üchstwert, there were fewer than 635 special offers of manufacturers. According to analysis of the CAR example, there is an Audi A4 Avant with Umweltpr–īmie with 40 percent discount closed for 20,382 euros, a Skoda Octavia to 9,386 euros (46% discount) or the Gulf of less than 10,000 euros - 44 percent discount. The zus–ītzlichen actions run out almost all the end of the year, so that the level of discount 2,018 d—Ćrfte again fall significantly. However, the market closed for diesel vehicles by CAR-information is so out of whack that he d—Ćrfte hardly recover again vollst–īndig.

In a survey of the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand (DAT) in the summer of 2017, 58 percent of H–īndler had indicated otherwise used diesel —Ćblich for sale with discounts as h—Üheren. New cars 36 percent resorted to this means. Disadvantage closed for owners: Even when purchasing Selbstz—Ćndern the Autoh–īuser show According survey careful. 65 percent take them only at lower prices in payment. And the residual value is the problem: According to analysis diesel vehicles have three years less residual value of the list price than comparable gasoline engine with 55.4 percent (56.4 percent). According DAT evaluation diesel have 94 days now significantly l–īngere average life at H–īndlern than gasoline (82 days).

How do the customers react?

Skepticism w–īchst more and more. The best–ītigte mid-July 2017 repr–īsentative survey Autoscout24 in German-speaking countries under well 1,000 people. Accordingly, around 60 percent of drivers surveyed currently make thoughts around the exhaust scandal and the discussion of driving restrictions. From the holders of diesel vehicles is as high as two-thirds (67 percent). 28 percent of car owners said that they have entt–īuscht by the manufacturers, the emission values ‚Äč‚Äčhave been tampered with. Only 15 percent of respondents w—Ćrden when buying a vehicle is the first diesel car to look around. Even under the current diesel owners are only just over a third (38 percent). 18 percent of them currently —Ćberlegen their vehicles to sell.

How did the manufacturer?

Differently. As the first gro–Įer carmaker, Volvo turns away because of the rising costs of emission from diesel. VW is committed to diesel, but invested nine billion euros three times as much money in alternative drives. The Group also l–īutet for small models farewell to the diesel one: The VW subsidiary Skoda will no longer offer the subcompact Fabia from 2018 with a diesel engine. Also closed for the all-new Fabia n–īchste generation no more diesel is provided. Although Daimler wants to maintain the diesel, but expects almost a quarter battery electric cars on own sales by 2025. Audi's strategy is by this time a third electric and two-thirds Nitro before - ie petrol, diesel and gas. BMW boss Harald Kr—Ćger says, however: "Nothing points to a death of diesel The clean diesel has a long future ahead of him.." Toyota already has for L–īngerem to alternative fuels, hybrid pioneer is one of the gro–Įen profiteers on the German car market. About all manufacturers hovers the EU target, after 2021, the Flottenaussto–Į may be as low as 95 g CO2 / km per vehicle sold. Otherwise threaten high penalties.

Which variant is worth more, diesel or petrol?

Whereas the diesel journey?

The price advantage of diesel when refueling betr–īgt per liter still about 20 cents gegen—Ćber gasoline E10.

The ADAC has made in Fr—Ćhjahr 2017 gro–Į applied cost compared with more than 1,600 vehicles. Also AUTO BILD early 2017 in a two-part test a total of 19 petrol diesel pairs tested (Part 1 and Part 2 with costs here /) determined and a real head-to-head race. A year earlier - shortly after the start of the diesel scandal - took the testers already 32 cars under the microscope (with costs).

What Diesel can I safely buy?

Not many. The ADAC is the answer in his gro–Į scale "Eco Test" in 2017, in which measurements on the Abgaspr—Ćfstand by real Stra–Įenmessungen (RDE, Real Driving emission) were erg–īnzt. The Automobile Club r–īt not grunds–ītzlich on the diesel. Potential buyers should make sure that a new car (low in real operating nitrogen oxide emissions NOx) having. "This is in compliance with the September closed for new models prescribed new Euro-6d-TEMP-standard or the Euro from 2020 g—Ćltigen-6d-norm of the case," says an ADAC spokesman. The Federation of Consumer Organizations can, however, the diesel currently "not currently recommend with a clear conscience," said a spokesman - because there are more questions than answers.
