Fuel Efficient
Hybrid and electric vehicles have certainly made a splash in the American car market; however, closer examination reveals this splash is actually more like a ripple — plug-in vehicles still represent a very small percentage of overall car sales. Although these efficient vehicles post some of the highest EPA fuel-economy numbers, they don’t properly reflect the U.S. car market. Therefore, let’s look at the 20 most fuel-efficient vehicles in America that have no electric motors and don’t get plugged in. As a bonus, most of these happen to be the least expensive cars in America as well as the most fuel efficient, so a variety of thrifty consumers will likely find something on this list that suits their individual taste and budget. Cars are listed in ascending order by their EPA city / highway combined fuel-economy rating, followed by engine type and transmission in parentheses.
