More diesels for North America!

"Meanwhile, VW sees big U.S. growth for diesel drivetrains, including the possible introduction of a diesel version of the Tiguan. Diesels account for just over 20 percent of the VW brand's lineup, but that could grow to 30 percent if a diesel Tiguan were added, Michel said.
"I'm pretty sure we can do 30" percent, Michel said of diesel's potential market penetration. VW's dealer council is even more bullish, he said. It contends that diesels could account for half of VW's sales, he said.
Through informal talks with diesel-injection supplier Robert Bosch, he has heard that "many" other automakers will introduce diesel engines in the United States in the 2013 time frame. "When others help us promote diesel, then really, I think we'll see much more diesels in the market," Michel said"

Well, as a big VW and even bigger diesel fan, this is music to my ears!
