I believe there is a large hidden market for diesel electric vehicles that many auto makers are overlooking. There are plenty of people that would welcome the acceptance of diesel vehicles into American households.
A Few Key Points
Diesel is usually about 15% more expensive in the United States depending on where you are however the net gain from MPG exceeds the expense easily and well maintained Diesel engines can get 200,000+ miles.
Diesel's are closer to obtaining the correct ratio of air to fuel than any gasoline engine currently produced. They are more fuel efficient, produce more torque and they tend to be more durable.
Diesels are ideal for hybrid technology because of the quantity of torque available at low rpms. There is little reason you couldn't have a 55 mpg Ford Fusion diesel hybrid.
