Porsche plans to drop diesel powertrains by 2020

Porsche is looking to move away from diesel engines for their entire line-up by the year 2020. This decision is an outcome of the Dieselgate scandal which has forced the parent company VW to cough up about 25 billion USD in damages.

Reports state that diesel vehicle sales account for about 15 per cent of Porsche’s global sales. It was the Cayenne SUV that was the first Porsche to get a diesel engine back then in 2009, and the new Cayenne is all set to debut in the coming weeks. But this time around, alongside the upcoming diesel Cayenne, will be the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid that will borrow the hybrid powertrain from the Panamera.

Porsche CEO Oliver Blume, said, "Of course we are looking into this. We have not made a decision on it yet. For the generations that will follow there are different scenarios." To counter the absence of the diesel engine in its fleet, if the brand finally chooses to do so, Porsche will offer numerous electric and hybrid vehicles over the next decade. Stay tuned for more information.
