Here in UK diesel cars are finished....nobody wants a diesel engined car.
Not true - depends on use case. I do very long (700 miles plus) journeys regularly and will be devastated when I can’t get a diesel. Just bought a new D300 Velar to compliment the P300e Evoque we use for local journeys.

New car sales by fuel type
New car sales have shifted away from diesel fuel in recent years. In 2014, diesel accounted for 50% of all new passenger car sales in the UK; however, by late-2021, fewer than 15% of new passenger cars were diesel. In contrast, petrol has increased its market share of the passenger car market. In 2014, 47.8% of all new cars used petrol. In late-2021 this figure now stands at 58.8%.
Electric and hybrid cars sales stats
Demand for plug-in electric passenger cars has grown significantly in recent years. In 2014, just 2.2% of all new passenger cars were electric. This figure has grown to 10.6% in 2021 and sales of new electric cars will increase as the UK approaches the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel car sales.
Plug-in hybrid and self-charging hybrid cars have a respective 2021 market share of 6.9% and 9.0% in the UK. These cars are currently popular with drivers who want an electrified car with low tailpipe emissions but do not want the range constraints of a pure battery-electric vehicle.
The sale of new self-charging hybrid cars will end in 2030, as part of the UK Government's step towards net-zero. The sale of some new plug-in hybrid cars, however, will be allowed to continue until 2035.
