New Delhi sources have stated that the share of diesel in hatchbacks and sedans has fallen to under a quarter, which means that more than three cars out of every four sold are now run on petrol. Meanwhile the narrowing gap between petrol and diesel fuel prices has been one of the critical factors behind the trend, which should sound like music to environmentalists and green lobbies.
Accordingly the numbers are even more encouraging as the trend comes at a time when pollution figures have been at alarming levels across many Indian cities and there have been calls for controlling vehicular emissions, especially from diesel ones.
Presently with the difference between petrol
and diesel fuel narrowing down, many people now prefer to opt for petrol
versions. Against a gap of Rs 27 around the middle of 2012, the difference in
the retail price of petrol and diesel fuel has narrowed down to only Rs 10 now.
