Number of diesel car registrations in Italy 2010-2018

The number of diesel cars registered in Italy attested a positive trend in recent years, passing from 702,735 units in 2013, to just under one million units registered in 2018. Diesel remains a widespread preference in Italy for the automotive market. The same, cannot be applied to diesel-electric vehicles which between 2013 and 2017 attested a strong decrease.

Diesel extinction?

Diesel is one of the protagonists of the debates on the future of mobility and the environment. According to a recent survey, one of the measures to reduce pollution could be a ban on sales and production of petrol and diesel cars from 2025/2030. If this measure was implemented, it would result in a large vehicle replacement requisite.

The electric wave is coming 

From 2009 to 2017, despite the general lack of demand on the Italian market in comparison to other fuel categories, the number of electric cars increased significantly from only 62 units as of 2009 to over 1.4 thousand units by the end of 2016. In 2017, electric car sales reached 1,879 units sold.
