20 Efficient Fuel Misers
Every year the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency tests new light vehicles and ranks them according to their fuel mileage potential, assisting fuel-conscious shoppers with their purchase decisions. For the first time in history, the 12 most fuel-efficient vehicles in America are electric, and most have combined city/highway fuel ratings of more than 100 MPGe. In other articles we’ll cover the most fuel-efficient non-EV vehicles, but for now let’s look at the 20 vehicles with the best combined EPA fuel economy ratings. *Annual fuel cost estimate based on 55% city/45% highway driving and 15,000 annual miles. Electric vehicles ranked by Miles Per Gallon equivalent (MPGe): 33.7 kW-hrs = 1 gallon of gas. Electric charge times shown are at 240 volts. Vehicle prices listed do NOT include a $7,500 federal tax credit.
