State-by-state registrations of diesel vehicles in the U.S. 2014 This statistic represents the registration of diesel cars in the United States in the year 2014, by state. In 2014, there were almost 894,000 diesel-fuelled cars registered in Texas; there were some 7.4 million diesel cars registered in the United States in 2014. Finished motor gasoline is the most commonly used fuel in the U.S. transportation sector.
Diesel vehicle registrations in the United States

While, at 11 percent, Wyoming had the highest share of diesel vehicle drivers, Texas held the top spot in terms of diesel vehicle registrations in the United States in 2014: Nearly 900,000 vehicles were registered here. Together with California and Florida, each with 650,000 and 330,000 diesel cars registered, the three states led the list of states with the most diesel vehicle registrations.

2014 saw a 10 percent growth in the U.S. clean diesel car sales from 2013, which points to an increasing demand for diesel cars that run on low emissions. However, it is expected that customers will shy away in the wake of the Volkswagen diesel emission scandal. As of 2014, the majority of diesel passenger cars were manufactured by the Volkswagen Group. This figure was six times higher than BMW diesel passenger car registrations. Diesel-equipped vehicles were one of Volkswagen’s major sales revenue streams, as diesel vehicles accounted for more than 20 percent of VW's vehicle sales in the United States in 2014.

In terms of diesel and alternate fuel sales, Texas and California retained their leadership positions in 2015, with 5.2 billion gallons and three billion gallons sold respectively, but Florida dropped to sixth place, while Illinois came in at a distant third.
