There is little doubt that increased regulations and increasing fuel costs will drive up the future sales of clean technology vehicles. However, Pike research says that the sales of clean diesels will quickly outstrip the sales of hybrid cars, even in the U.S., and eventually account for 12.4 percent of the planet's light duty vehicle industry.

Motors are clean
The clean diesel engines are more efficient than ever right now. In the United States, Japan and Europe, efficiency specifications have increased a ton.
Pike research senior analyst Lisa Jerram said:
“Demand for diesel cars is primarily driven by their fuel economy. A diesel vehicle typically gets 20 percent to 40 percent better fuel economy than a comparable gasoline car.”
Move over, hybrids
In the next six years, Pike’s “Clean Diesel Vehicles” report forecasts that the number of clean diesel vehicles sold worldwide in the U.S. will increase to 13.1 million. In 2012, it is already expected to hit 9.1 million clean diesel vehicles. Pike thinks fewer hybrids will sell during that time.
Pike predicts there will be more natural gasoline vehicles that will beat out plug-ins and hybrids. It also believes that hybrid cars still fill a niche and will not go anywhere anytime soon.

Used in Europe
For a while now, Europe has seen a lot of clean diesel.
According to Jerram:
"[Fuel economy], along with favorable tax treatment for diesel fuel, has made diesel cars tremendously popular in Europe, where they have accounted for around 50 percent of light-duty vehicle sales over the past several years."
Whole world uses it
Pike claims that the highest number of sales will be seen in Eastern Europe, where diesels have traditionally performed the strongest. But it believes the greatest growth will be seen in other markets, like the United States The global rate of sales will increase by about 4.8 percent before 2018, says Pike.
In the future years, the increasing cost of fuel and increased government pressure will most likely cause more American car buyers to want to buy diesel vehicles, according to Pike.
By 2018, the U.S. will beat Canada with a rise of 22 percent in clean diesel sales to about 1 million units per year if Pike is correct.
