NEW YORK, March 11, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A lot has happened in the world of diesel vehicles in the past year that has dramatically affected forecasts about the current and future prospects for diesel passenger vehicles in the United States. The drastic drop in fuel prices (diesel and gasoline) and the Volkswagen situation have directly impacted sales in the U.S. and other regions of the world.
In the lead-up to the 2016 New York International Auto Show, Allen Schaeffer, Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum, and Alan Baum of Baum and Associates, will use the latest data, including sales and registration information and product launch calendars to provide the most current projections for the future of diesel passenger vehicles at the International Motor Press Association meeting in New York City.

The panel will discuss how government regulations – especially fuel economy regulations - will help or hinder the U.S. diesel market, and the different strategies automakers will be employing to meet the upcoming fuel economy standards. The role of diesels in the passenger car sector and the pickup truck and SUV sectors will also be explored.
