Are Diesels Ready to Give Hybrids a Run for the Money?
Cars with diesel engines provide far greater driving range between fill-ups than their gas brethren too.
Diesel versus Hybrids?
This is an interesting one? Some the car manufacturers are turning their efforts into developing more efficient diesel engines to give better mileage figures. This will also compete with the electric cars that are now being developed.
Surprising or not car development technology stops for no one. And new cars with cleaner diesel technologies have become much more credible alternatives to the hybrids because they are using much more advanced fuel systems, better and much more powerful electronics, and more up to date design techniques when designing the other engine parts. This is yet another step that we are taking to develop the cars of the future.
Another advantage of these new generation diesel engine cars is that the cars will not lose any rear leg room or boot space. In the electric cars this space is taken up by the large batteries that drive the cars power unit. In my opinion, I think that this will be another step to the massive mix of vehicles using different technologies on our roads and it can only be good news for those working in the auto trade, especially us garage owners, as long as we are given access to the new technology and train our staff we should have nothing to worry about, after all when i think back to what cars were like when i was a young mechanic, compared with what they are like now, then we have nothing to fear in the future unless you know differently?
