10 Most Fuel Efficient Cars In US (2014)

Originally published on EV Obsession.

most fuel efficient car in US

Update Dec 5, 2013: It seems that the Nissan Leaf and Tesla Model S aren’t on this list because the EPA has created the list for 2014 models only and it doesn’t have 2014 model data for those. I’ll update this post (and) write a new announcement, when I see the list updated again. Of course, other electric cars also might make the cut once their 2014 fuel economy ratings are in.

The US EPA and DOE have released an updated list of the top 10 most fuel efficient cars on the US auto market in 2014. This year, the Chevy Spark EV, which has gotten some very positive reviews (especially for its zippiness) tops the list. Of course, this isn’t simply supposed to be a list of the most fuel efficient electric cars (…er, most electricity efficient?), but that’s what it has ended up becoming. All 10 vehicles below are plug-in vehicles. The first 7 are 100% electric vehicles, while the remaining 3 are plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

Unfortunately, those top 3 most fuel efficient cars are sold in just a few markets, and aren’t even being manufactured in high enough numbers to meet demand. When are these manufacturers going to step up and at least start producing enough for the people who want them?
