I find it ironic and very saddening that most people will only do what's best for them if forced to, or bribed.
If given the opportunity they will return to their old ways without the least hesitation.
It seems common sense is not so common any more.
I can only imagine what it would feel like if gas went back up to $4.00 a gallon before the first payment was due on a big SUV I just bought.

For your amusement

I do not know the current availability, either, of course. Nor do I know how the RAM 1500 diesel is counted, car vs. truck.

It is just interesting to see the figures from time to time. So far, as much as I wish it were different, diesels are once again falling fairly flat in the North American consumer market.

Thanks again for posting the data here, reb4!

Obviously the delta between gasoline to Delta is not helping the sales of Diesels .
Not going to see much change in the near future for this segment....

FIRST DRIVE: 2016 TOYOTA MIRAI
"Toyota’s all-new Mirai, which uses hydrogen fuel cells for propulsion, is a forward-thinking catalyst to change the way we move about, a dramatically-envisioned leap toward a zero-emissions, carbon neutral planet.
The car’s name means ‘future’ in Japanese, and although it’s not perfect, this vehicle is one of the biggest steps toward changing that future we’ve seen in years."

I agree, hydrogen was cost as well as infrastructure...



odd that NG is not going anywhere except commercially... and odd that Toyota is not interested in Electric, but that could change... and they could switch from Hydrogen... wonder if they actually do have something that may be a reason for the dropping of electric....

No problem with ethanol as ethanol option....




All of them need to get government intervention out of it.....

reb4, I agree about Hydrogen. Infrastructure is definitely an issue, but there is more to it than that alone, of course.

Natural gas has some existing infrastructure and could have a great deal more, but few really seem to see this as a viable vehicle fuel or there would be more fueling stations outside of core cities, public transit agencies, major local truck users (such as waste haulers) and only a few of the utilities themselves.

Electric seems to hold the greatest long-term promise in terms of infrastructure availability yet here we have major manufacturers (like Toyota) moving away from electricity toward fuel-cells.

One of the great promises of ethanol was that the fueling infrastructure was mostly in place, yet that is clearly not enough in the eyes of a large segment of the consuming public to make up for that alternative fuel's other apparent shortcomings.

as you know profdude, the issue is gas tax on top of supply for diesel.

But You do have a nice higher end vehicle...

I'm with you on the Tesla... LOL if money was no object....My current use would be great with a minimal plug-in... my prius will take a beating on mpg due to the mile back and forth to train station... we commute via train so rarely used.. (need to use the OTHER car...) LOLI just don't see the hydrogen taking off .. even with all the hype.No infrastructure by us.

As always, thanks for re-posting all of this data here, reb4. It is interesting to see the trends.

As much as I enjoy my diesel sedan, and have thus far come out ahead on the fuel price side of the equation, I am sure there will be many months ahead that see gasoline as way lower in price in our area than diesel. This has not been true very frequently since I bought my current daily driver (33 months ago) but that has in large part been due to the recent spate of refinery related challenges effecting gassers in NE Illinois.

If I were in the market today, it would depend greatly on what I was seeking in terms of a vehicle's main purpose as to what I would buy...

If I needed a strict local commuter car, then I might test drive the M-B B-class electric. If money were no object, I would have to say the Tesla all-wheel drive would be my favorite. I might also consider an NGV like the Honda Civic GX if I knew I could refuel somewhere tolerably convenient. Chicago offers promise, the suburbs not so much. And, the Civic may be just too small for me physically. I prefer mid-size in a sedan.

If I was looking for a flexible short-distance commuter and hauler of sorts, I would gravitate toward testing the RAM eco-diesel 1500 in a crew cab layout.

If I wanted a small-medium AWD SUV, then the BMW X5 TDI has appeal.

One thing I am rarely excited about as an automotive consumer is maintaining the status quo. I prefer something different. Something distinctly atypical that tests market demand and offers engineers and auto makers the chance to put new ideas to the test is always more appealing to me. This is a major reason that I owned and drove flex-fuel technology (ethanol/gasoline) for more than ten years and 300,000 miles.

I think it would be great fun to test drive a new power plant such as a hydrogen or fuel cell vehicle for a year or two and provide feedback and data to the manufacturer for their use in developing the technology further.

I don't want either one... electric cars are to limited in driving distance and diesel is to expensive. The only fuel that hasn't gone down in price.

LOL, guess I need to check back more frequently...


Personally if some lower priced vehicles came out like the tesla, which has some good recharging options, it would be a much better deal.

I could live with a 65 mile car for most my local driving... It's plenty...

But it would be a Leaf, not a spark....If I have time I'll do some number crunching... My problem is I'm happy with my Prius... THough it would be great for my one mile commutes to train station and back home or short trips to store...

Correction...
$12/15,000.00 should be $25,000.00

(Wife was pestering me...loosing my ability to multi-task)

OK....$10,000.00-$15,000.00 for batteries is beyond my comprehension.

Let's see $12,000 of fuel @ $3.00 per gallon should be 4000 gallons...
4000 gallons of fuel should be enough to power a Chev Spark for
140,000 miles or just under 12 years.

I'm too far out for electric...However if I still lived in the city,
was still working a daily job....maybe an electric would make sense.
@ the present offering of electrics....The Smart looks like the best
choice (for me) $12/15,000.00.....68 miles on a charge...plug in at home..
battery assurance plan.
Our kids have left the nest long ago....(just the two of us). We have a
family car (Diesel) for travel.

There's defiantly a market for EV's but that market will remain small as
long as they cost more than their equal in an ICE configuration.

We can thank Tesla for creating a market for EV's in the "Upper" end of the
automotive spectrum.

I've tried to imagine myself paying $30,000.00 for an electric Chevy Sonic....
I guess I just don't have enough imagination.

"Rumor has it that the 200-mile EV could actually be a Chevy Sonic, and could arrive as soon as 2016, though production numbers could be limited and sales directed only at states like California and Oregon, which mandate a certain number of zero-emissions vehicles. That would be a terrible shame if true, because this sounds like a legitimate rival to the $35,000, 200-mile Tesla Model III due out in 2017."


G M confirms development of 200 mile EV





Looks to be a real competitor to tesla.

It would seem as the fuel prices drop so do the sales on fuel efficient vehicles.
Now everyone will be headed to the dealer for pick-ups and the SUV(s).

Myself, I'm waiting for the dealers to start getting aggressive on selling the efficient ones. This bubble won't last long. Next stop $4.50-$5.00 per gallon.

Yea, I hear ya Charlie... with the Camry coming out with more price points might help them... Fusion is a competitor... and I am actually enjoying it...

Had Ford not over estimated (being kind) their mpg... who knows what might have happened

a mini van would be a good thing ... But evidently the cost is the issue. Weight does not seem to be a good thing... as you have said all along...

Thanks, reb4.

Interestingly, while the hybrid take rate for the mainstream Camry and Fusion is 10-15% or so, the take rate for more expensive vehicles, the take rate for the Avalon, Lexus ES and Lincoln MKZ hybrids is 25-30%.

Chrysler is reported to be working on some sort of hybrid version of the Caravan. That should be interesting to see.
