Diesels won't make it here unless we change the EPA regs. Or new technology comes around that makes it cheap to work around them. VW small diesels have to waste fuel in regen cycles to to burn up particles. All other diesels need the urea fills. I'm not sure how many buyers are going to want an Accord that starts at $25,000 and needs a $300 urea fill every 7500 miles or so.>

I don't think diesels can achieve much else beyond a small niche market share here in the US. Our emissions controls just don't allow the automakers to bring small diesels to market. Given the governmental controls most automakers will continue down the hybrid route this side of the Atlantic.
