The diesel car is here to stay, says Toyota

Toyota is convinced that there is still a lot of potential and life left in the diesel engine. The Japanese call the fuel an excellent source.

The diesel car is far from as dead as some might wish it to be.

At least not if you ask Toyota, who are still convinced that the diesel engine has 'a long future'.

The marketing manager at Toyota in Australia, Sean Hanley, tells the media Drive .

The Toyota boss straight up praises the fuel and calls diesel a very reliable energy source. Sean Hanley also does not believe that the diesel engine is as dead as it is generally portrayed in the public eye.

However, the marketing manager acknowledges that the diesel engine needs to undergo a development where it can meet increasingly strict emission requirements if the technology is to survive.

This is one of the reasons, he says, that Toyota has launched a hybrid version of the 2.8-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine in the Hilux. The brand will also not rule out that synthetic diesel may come into question in time.

It is also not many months ago that Toyota's chairman of the board and former director Akio Toyoda said that the brand is in the process of developing a number of new internal combustion engines.

This happens because Toyota as a brand does not believe that the electric car will ever capture more than 30 percent of the global car market. It looks even worse for the used market. At least when it comes to electric cars.

The Japanese do not think there is any market for used electric cars at all. The value of them – the cars that is – then also rattles down at a furious speed. Read more about it here .
