Fuel Efficient of 2019
Electrified vehicles continue to be the most fuel efficient in America, and in 2019 there are more plug-in models to choose from than ever before. Considering the country’s relatively low gasoline prices, sales of pure electric cars remain a very small fraction of total vehicle sales, largely due to the primary drawbacks of electric cars — they can take a long time to charge and most have a limited driving range. All 25 vehicles on this fuel-efficient list have some level of electrification; either as pure electric or hybrid. Most listed are 2019 models, but there are a few 2018s that are expected to make the list once the 2019 model gets evaluated. What follows are the 25 most fuel-efficient vehicles in America according to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ratings, sorted in ascending order by combined MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent, which measures the miles a vehicle can travel on the energy equivalent to a gallon of gasoline) or combined MPG. Note: the U.S. EPA does not report city / highway fuel economy for plug-in hybrids.
