Where to now for Diesels?
Despite all the attention being given to electric drivetrains, diesel engines still have a long future ahead of them. Engineering, design, and innovation centers have never been busier.
The industry will continue to push towards cleaner technologies, and the industry is doing surprisingly well with that effort.
According to a recent study by the Diesel Technology Forum - they've concluded that 49% of all diesel-powered commercial vehicles on the road are powered by clean-diesel engine technology.
There continues to be talk that hydrogen is a potential low- or carbon-free energy fuel source that several companies are investing in to learn more about.
Other companies are looking to reimagine the diesel engine build with opposed piston technology.
