It’s no surprise that the most fuel-efficient vehicles in the lineup are sedans. Still, SUVs like the Venue or compacts like the Veloster offer above-class efficiency ratings, which make them very competitive in the market. You can also opt for greener options like the 2020 Hyundai Nexo Fuel Cell, which delivers 61 combined MPGe, or the 2019 Sonata Hybrid, which returns up to 46 mpg on the highway. Whether you need an eco-friendly commuter car or a spacious SUV for the whole family, you’ll find an efficient Hyundai that meets your needs.

What about Electric Vehicles?

Electric vehicles use rechargeable batteries for propulsion, which makes them the most eco-friendly option in the automotive market. In this segment, the 2020 Ioniq Electric clearly takes the price, with an amazing rating of 133 combined MPGe. And what does this acronym mean? Well, since EVs do not run on gasoline fuel, it is impossible to give them a true gallon-usage rating. Instead, they are rated in MPGe (miles-per-gallon equivalent). This measurement allows you to see how EVs and hybrids compare to gasoline vehicles in terms of consumption, despite the different sources of energy.
