Clean diesel car registrations increased by 24.3 percent in the U.S. from 2010 through 2012 following similar trends of double-digit diesel car sale increases throughout the country, according to new data compiled for the Diesel Technology Forum.

Data also revealed South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky and Mississippi are the fastest growing states for hybrid car registrations.

The national registration information was compiled by R.L. Polk and Company and includes data for all types of passenger vehicles – cars, SUVs, pickup trucks and vans – in all 50 states and the District of Columbia from January 1, 2010 through Dec. 31, 2012.

got a diesel and a gas burner for two very different purposes. IF there was more NG available, I would even consider trading the gas burner for an NG Civic...

When numbers are "relatively" small, it doesn't take much for a big percentage change.

It is all about the mileage but diesels retain more of their sticker price than anything else I have followed.

Increase In Hybrid Registrations and Diesel? When the government forces Inbreds and diesel vehicles down our throats, there will be an increase in registrations of some kind.
I will drive my vehicle into the ground before buying anything new, used, EV, PHEV, Inbred, diesel, hydrogen, alternative fuel, CNG, concept and certainly NOT a GM, Ford, Chrysler, Fiat, Prius, 'Tesla,' Leaf, Volt, Peugeot or an NYC/Hurricane Sandy Special 'exploding submarine' Fiskar Karma Inbred!
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Some type hybrids have their advantages, but some shouldn't even be called hybrids. A least they can recharge themselves while driving, mainly in town. If enough people switch to EVs the US Electric grids will fail.

People like choices. The more choices there are, the less traditional gasoline appeals to some.

I'm glad to see diesel registrations go up. Now can we stabilize the price of diesel at the mid grade to premimum gas price?

Probably would consider a "clean diesel" IF they were reliable and affordable.

At least the diesel drivers aren't using ethanol! With the mandates in place though the less we use the more is exported.

Diesels don't make sense with diesel fuel being so much higher. And I still am not convinced hybrids are worth the added cost yet.
