The average selling price of diesel cars in May remained stable year-on-year, according to Dealer Auction.
While diesel sales prices have remained stable at 99.9% of the figure recorded a year ago, the volume of diesel vehicles sold has increased by 29% year-on-year.
Despite selling more than 3,000 on the online auction platform in May, the average selling price has fallen by £5 per vehicle.
Dealer Auctions’ operations director Kieran TeeBoon said: “Despite diesel cars continuing to face negative media attention and the spotlight of the government and other authorities, our data indicates that demand for diesel cars is remaining stable. The uncertainty surrounding them is not putting dealers off stocking them, and does not appear to be putting consumers off buying them in the used market.”
