New Bosch diesel technology deserves a chance – commentary

Die Zeit

The vastly improved diesel technology by leading car supplier Bosch deserves a chance because NOx emissions stay well below the strict 2020 EU emission rules and diesel engines emit less CO2 than petrol engines, writes Dietmar Lamparter in a commentary in weekly Die Zeit. “A rehabilitated diesel could buy time for carmakers like BMW, Daimler and Audi, as well as their suppliers, like Bosch or Continental, as a transition technology for the next ten or twenty years,” writes Lamparter. “Until then, investments in alternative engines worth billions could pay off because all of them know that these will replace combustion engines in the long run.”
