Clean Diesel Gaining Ground In U.S. Auto Sales
In this week’s auto transport news feature, we’re going to talk a bit about clean diesel and how it’s slowly starting to gain ground in the U.S., especially among passenger cars. While diesel as a fuel source has been used for decades now, the shift to cleaner, more efficient diesel has been slow in coming and has only started recently. According to sources, sales of clean diesel cars were up 41% over their sales number in 2012, a huge leap for a still-growing niche market. However, these jumps in sales indicate that more people in the U.S. are willing to accept alternative fuel – which could page for the way for lower auto transport costs too.
But how? The answer is surprisingly simple. If clean diesel and bio diesel become more prevalent in the U.S., it’s not a stretch to believe that fleet managers of interstate trucking companies would want to save money on their overhead. Fuel is the number one cost for most auto transporters, and if they can save money at the pump they could theoretically pass those savings onto customers by being able to take freight at a cheaper price. Cleaner diesel also would lower the carbon footprint of many transport companies, which would be great for the environment and everyone’s respiratory systems in general. It’s a slow process – chances are it’ll take years or even decades for this technology to reach the auto transport industry. But one can dream.
