Hyundai named the most fuel-efficient automaker in America

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Hyundai topped the latest U.S. Environmental Protection Agency fuel economy report after only a year of having announced a promise to become the leading manufacturer in fuel economy.

This achievement is made all the more impressive when you consider that Hyundai beat all major carmakers in Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) including longtime leaders like Honda and Toyota.

Hyundai's value-driven fuel-efficiency strategy, which focuses on the intelligent application of cost-effective technologies, is highlighted in the report.

It's also apparent how Hyundai leads in the race to attain the government-mandated 2016 CAFE standard of 35.5 miles per gallon.

According to the EPA 2009 Light-Duty Automotive Technology and Fuel Economy Trends Report, Hyundai has the highest MY 2009 laboratory 55/45 fuel economy with 30.1 miles per gallon (mpg).

Furthermore, Hyundai is the only automaker to top 30 mpg in the report. John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America, issued a statement that cites the company's thoughtful application of cost-effective, fuel-efficient technologies as what has helped it to reach its goal ahead of schedule.

Krafcik added that Hyundai wishes to extend that leadership with the launch of its new direct injection, turbocharging and lithium-polymer hybrid technologies, all of which will be a part of the 2011 Sonata lineup launching early next year.
