VW head Müller says diesel will have a “renaissance” soon

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Diesel engines will have “a renaissance in the foreseeable future” and shed its currently-tarnished image as a particularly polluting technology, VW head Michael Müller said at the important trade fair Geneva International Motor Show, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reports. Diesel engines are going to be needed to reach the EU’s CO2 emissions limits and the technology could be further improved, Müller argued.
