Porsche dumps diesel from entire model range

Porsche Mission E Spied

And now the Macan S Diesel and the Panamera 4S Diesel have been taken off the market - it seems like Porsche, which used VW 3.0-liter V6 diesel mills, made a decision to remove the said models instead of reengineering them in order for these to meet the ever-increasing emission standards. And now in 2018, that saga is coming to an end as Porsche terminates production of all its diesel vehicles for the foreseeable future.

Porsche has revealed that it plans to ditch diesel engines from its line-up entirely, confirming rumours that it was unsure whether or not to put the effort into re-engineering its diesel units for the launch of the facelifted Macan SUV range later this year.

In a statement, the manufacturer said: "Diesel engines traditionally play a subordinate role at Porsche". However, there was a reference to a software update that has been involved in an "ongoing consultation with the authorities", meaning there is more beneath the surface.

No more sunny drives along the coast on a Porsche diesel launch.

Ending Coal India's monopoly, government opens coal mining to private sector firms
In this situation, while domestic production growth has been flat, coal imports have gone up sharply. CIL has been the sole commercial miner for 41 years with a market share of 80 per cent.

Such a move highlights the shrinking demand for the model, which a Porsche UK spokesman said represented a small portion of the SUV's 97,000 global sales from 2017. As a result, the automaker has reportedly phased out the Macan S Diesel and the Panamera 4S Diesel.

Last year, only 15 percent of Porsche's global sales were diesel models, with the vast majority sold in Europe-the market where interest has lagged.

Porsche has become the first big-name European auto company to announce that it is withdrawing all diesel models from sale. But Porsche boss Oliver Blume revealed to Autocar past year that "diesel is not so important for Porsche", adding that diesel sales made up just 15% of Porsche's total worldwide sales, mostly in Europe. Porsche halted investment in diesel past year, shifting much of its R&D focus to electrification.
