Scandals and restrictions have taken its toll on a number of automakers.

Diesel fuel has been a huge part of the automotive industry. The performance this fuel type brings to the table and its relative fuel economy made diesel a favorite among car-buyers, to the point that almost every brand has a diesel option in their vehicle lineup. 

But, that's a thing of the past now. Scandals that involve diesel emissions have tarnished the use of the fuel type and stricter regulations from several countries have forced manufacturers to ultimately veer away from including diesel-fed cars in their range. With that, sales numbers of diesel-powered cars continue to drop, particularly in Europe.  It's a sad story, but one that we've had coming, as it's almost impossible to come clean while using diesel.

To date, there are 13 automakers that have announced to put a stop to make cars that consume diesel in their vehicle range. Browse through the gallery to see the list.
