U.S. EPA Labels Hyundai #1 for Fuel Economy and CO2 Emissions

Have you grown as tired as we have of completely emptying your wallet every time you pull up to the pump? Murdock Hyundai Salt Lake serving the greater Salt Lake City area can feel your pain. We, however, have a slight advantage thanks to the great fuel economy the new line-up of Hyundai models provides.

Rest assure, this is not just a sales pitch, and you don't have to take our word for it. The U.S. Environmental Protection Association released their annual "EPA Light-Duty Automotive Technology and fuel Economy Trends Report" last month, and findings show that Hyundai Motor America ranks in the first position for fuel efficiency and carbon emissions.

But wait, there is more.  Maybe you are not looking to buy a new car.   The good news is that the EPA recognized Hyundai for their 2010 and 2008 lineups as well.  For the 2010 model year, Hyundai was designated as the leading brand in terms of efficiency for an overall adjusted fuel economy rating of 27 mpg. Another honor came in the form of best overall adjusted composite CO2 emissions performance. And before that, in 2008, the U.S. EPA named Hyundai number one for both fuel economy and carbon emissions.

You might be seeing a trend forming, and we don't' foresee that pattern of great fuel economy and earth friendly vehicles stopping anytime soon.  John Krafcik, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor America comments, "We are committed to developing a suite of smart fuel-efficient strategies, from hybrids to new solutions in high-technology gasoline vehicles...Through innovations such as light-weight steel, direct injection technology, turbocharging and advanced transmissions we are able to improve the efficiency and performance of all our vehicles, allowing us to achieve best-in-class fuel economy and emissions levels for the Hyundai brand."1
