About the Coalition

The U.S. Coalition for Advanced Diesel Cars is a partnership committed to promoting the energy efficiency and environmental benefits of advanced clean diesel technology for passenger vehicles in the U.S. marketplace. It is the only advocacy group exclusively dedicated to clean diesel passenger vehicles.

With an average 30 percent better fuel economy and up to 25 percent lower CO2 emissions, today’s ultra-clean advanced technology diesel passenger cars, SUVs and pickup trucks can help meet the energy independence and environmental goals set by President Obama, Congress and several states without sacrificing the performance consumers expect.

The U.S. Coalition for Advanced Diesel Cars advocates for technology-neutral public policies and regulations rewarding innovation and providing equal market opportunities for advanced technology passenger vehicles. The Coalition is based in Washington, D.C. and is national in scope.
