General Motor's Executive Vice President of Global Product Development has revealed the dieselgate scandal won't dissuade them from offering diesel engines in the United States.

Speaking to Car & Driver, Mark Reuss said “The [Chevrolet] Cruze Diesel is too good not to do it.”  He declined to elaborate but the company has previously announced plans to introduce a diesel-powered Cruze in 2017.

Reuss also said there have been no delays in the development of diesel engines for Cadillac.  There's no word on specifications but previous reports have suggested the company is working on both four- and six-cylinder diesel engines.  They are being created to cater to European customers but are also expected to be offered in the United States.
