There are a lot of questions that we get when people are looking for a vehicle – What are the safety features? Does it have the latest technology?
And the most common question – What is the fuel economy like? And we confidently answer:
Cars are much more efficient and cleaner than in 2007!!
How do we know this? Smaller and more efficient vehicles are becoming more popular in the U.S., so it should be no surprise to learn that fuel economy figures have climbed steadily since 2007. New data from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) has determined that the combination of average fuel economy and emissions is at its lowest level in the United States since 2007.
The distances driven are still at 95% of what they were in 2007, but the amount of fuel used has dropped considerable as well as the emissions of greenhouse gases from new vehicles. The latest data shows a 23% reduction in overall vehicle emissions over the last six and a half years!! The average fuel economy today is 25.2 mpg; representing a significant increase from 2007 when it was 20.1 mpg.
So we have to repeat – Great Job America!!!
