Toyota doesn't think diesel will die – still relevant in 20 years

Toyota has no plans to kill the diesel engine. On the contrary, there is still a lot of life in it, says the brand's Australian sales manager.

Unlike Volvo, which has built the last car with a diesel engine, Toyota refuses to abandon the technology.

The Japanese believe that there is still more development and potential to come in the old oil burner. Because diesel does not need to be made from crude oil at all, says Toyota, which is researching the use of alternative fuels.

Including the combustion of hydrogen. And especially because of the heavier wagons, there is an idea in keeping the diesel engine alive.

That explains Toyota's sales director in Australia, Sean Hanley.

– There is still a long way to go for the diesel engine. It won't die right away, says Sean Hanley in an interview with Drive .

Despite what Sean Hanley believes is a popular portrayal, the diesel engine is not dead. On the contrary, he sees the fuel as remaining relevant for the next 10 to 20 years.

In the meantime, according to Toyota, it is obvious to explore the use of synthetic fuels and hybrid technology. But also when it comes to petrol, Toyota has a clear position.

At least in the performance department Gazoo Racing. Because cars from that side are not going to beat anything else. Than petrol that is. You can read more about how the head of department believes this is connected with a lower CO2 footprint here .

However, Toyota is not the only one that unbelievably continues the development of the internal combustion engine. In the past few weeks, the car brands have almost stood in a row to undo plans for electric cars.

It is then only a matter of time, because the EU decides to reconsider or at least postpone the ban on the internal combustion engine, says a former member of BMW's board of directors. Read more about it here .
