Diesels make a lot of sense, but not in all vehicles and not for all people.

Drive in town a lot and never leave town in that vehicle? Go battery, or a cheap, small gasser.

Mixed driving, weighted towards around town, but need a vehicle for longer trips? Hybrid, or a less expensive but still economical gasser, or a Diesel.

Lots of highway driving? Diesel.

Diesels in compact or mid-size SUVs make a lot of sense as well...torque, and better fuel economy than a gas counterpart.

In the end though, buyers need to look at their needs, and as well, do an actual cost analysis of what the overall costs will be, including purchase price/payment, fuel, and maintenance.
