Honda ditches diesel in UK

Diesel-fuelled Hondas have been withdrawn from UK sale with the last vehicles expected to be out of dealerships within a few weeks.

The Japanese carmaker is the biggest VM yet to axe diesel power in Britain.

It will also bring forward plans to phase out pure petrol cars by the end of 2022, rather than 2025 as previously suggested.

A Honda spokesman: “Honda has accelerated its plans for all its European mainstream car models to be electrified from 2025 to 2022 and our motor petrol hybrid technology will play a key role in achieving this goal.

“As such, we plan for European production of diesel powertrains to cease by the end of 2022.

“However, on a local level in the UK, we have now stopped selling diesel cars.”

    Nice one Honda a great effort. Folk generally are too stoopid to make their own minds up and need leading by the nose along with a good kick up the beep and beep also beep now and again. Get rid of the hybrids too its a false economy. Vehicles should also be made to comply with the country they are in. its pointless desiging 200mph cars when only village idiots use them. If the speed limit is 70mph then its a wasted resource to make them go faster. Ignorance is only bliss to an ignoramus.
