Toyota stops selling diesel cars in Italy



Toyota’s new-car lineup in Italy is now “diesel-free”, with the company’s decisions to stop selling diesel variants of its Yaris, Auris and RAV4 models in Italy.


Italian customers are encouraged to trade in their old diesels for a Toyota hybrid, offering incentives of up to 7,000 euros.


Last year, only 6 percent of Toyota’s new car sales in Italy were diesels, with less than 6 percent of the sales for Yaris and Auris and 18 percent for the RAV4.The company aims to compensate for lost diesel sales with hybrids, says a Toyota Italy spokesman.


According to a Toyota Europe spokesman, the market situation will dictate, whether Toyota will start offering diesel-free car lineups elsewhere in Europe. "The core of our strategy is hybrid. The more we move forward, the less the need for diesels," the spokesman said.
