February 27, 2013 | Diesel Technology Forum
The Diesel Technology Forum was in Atlanta for the NCSL 2013 Legislative Summit to speak to the nation's state policymakers about clean diesel's role in powering their state's economy and to showcase how clean diesel delivers...more fuel-efficient vehicles with superior power and performance.
Attendees saw the all new 2104 Chevy Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel! With 46mpg highway, the 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel boasts the best fuel economy of any gasoline or diesel car in America. It comes equipped with the very latest clean diesel technology which help reduce emissions without sacrificing power.
They also checked out the 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI, that just set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® achievement in June 2013 for the "lowest fuel consumption - 48 contiguous U.S. states for a non-hybrid car" category with a stellar 77.99 mpg. The achievement also beats the hybrid vehicle record of 64.6 mpg by more than 13 mpg
The Forum also highlighed the growth in diesel car registrations, an increase of 24.3 percent in the U.S. from 2010 through 2012 following similar trends of double-digit diesel car sale increases throughout the country.
