Diesel Cars High in Demand

These days, diesel cars have become the new petrol cars; with the new consumer hype for more efficient vehicles and most importantly, more affordable vehicles. The continuous raises in the petrol prices have been the turning point for consumers who are now looking to diesel vehicles when they consider purchasing a new vehicle.

In the city particularly, diesel vehicles have become extremely sought after by most consumers who drive primarily in the city. Many of the leading car manufacturers who have dealerships within the cities have reported a huge hike in the sales of their diesel vehicles, because of the diesel vehicles better fuel economy and the cheaper rate of the diesel which is needed to power their new vehicles.

The German auto manufacturer, Chevrolet is one of the auto dealers which have reported record sales of diesel vehicles within the city limits. Its sales of diesel vehicles have gone up by a huge percentage. The diesel version of the Chevrolet Beat, which has recently extremely popular because of its economic fuel consumption, has been selling much more than the petrol version of the same model of vehicle. This is what the reports from the regional manager showed.

Hyundai has also has somewhat similar results with its diesel version of the Verna model. It has been selling nearly twice as much as the petrol versions of the same car.

Other company managers have reported that the demand for their diesel vehicles has been so high that they have not been able to keep up with the demands.
Many companies have pending bookings for those who wish to buy diesel versions of certain vehicles, rather than the petrol versions.

The KTC Hyundai manager of sales at the Kishore dealership has commented that it is receiving only a few diesel cars a month from Hyundai, while the demand is higher and the auto manufacturer should be delivering far more. But many auto manufacturers simply do not have the resources to produce enough diesel models in the short amount of time since the diesel vehicles have osme into such high demand.
The sales manager at Maruti dealership, Indus Motors, believes that the high demand can be almost entirely traced back to the huge hikes in petrol prices in the last few years and even months.

Many of these diesel models are far more efficient than petrol vehicles, with nearly half of the running cost of petrol models. This seems to very clearly explain why they have become so popular.
Many auto manufacturers are beginning to consider entering the diesel section of the auto market, simply to meet the high demands and not be left out. This includes the Chevrolet beat, the Volkswagen Polo, and the Nissan Micra.

This diesel trend is not limited to just new vehicles. It has been noted very clearly in the used vehicles sector where many dealers are seeing their diesel vehicles selling far more quickly than the petrol ones, with no sign of the demand easing up.
