Porsche axes diesel models from its lineup

Porsche axes diesel models from its lineup

Porsche has announced that it is axing diesel models from its entire range. Up until last year, the German automaker produces diesel powered models for the Panamera, Cayenne and the Macan crossover, but decided not to introduce a diesel powered model for the Cayenne when its new generation was introduced last year.

The company has deemed the move a ‘cultural shift’ in the mindset of its buyers and says that there is a larger demand for hybrid and petrol powered models among their four-door range. In the larger picture, this move has no doubt been fueled by the fallout from the ‘Diesel Gate’ scandal that Porsche’s parent company, Volkswagen, has been struggling with since it was revealed in late 2015. Added to this is the fact that Porsche uses VW spec diesel engines and does not produce any of its own.

The company is now expected to put a big focus on hybrid power and much a bigger focus on electrification through its Mission E programme where it is expected to develop a range of electric vehicles.
