What is the most fuel-efficient car in America?

April 23rd, 2018 by

Being the best at something is an amazing feeling, whether it’s Peyton Manning winning MVP while leading a record-setting offense or simply winning a high school chess tournament. That on-top feeling is one of a kind. And for 2018, Hyundai knows exactly what we’re talking about as the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq has officially claimed the title of “most-fuel efficient car in America.”

The title of most fuel-efficient vehicle needs a bit of clarification, however, to say that this excludes any type of electric or plug-in vehicle. While Hyundai does offer plug-in hybrid and pure electric versions of the Ioniq, we are only discussing the Ioniq hybrid for the sake of this blog.

The all-new Hyundai Ioniq near Denver, CO surpasses the Toyota Prius, one of its best-known competitors, for the fuel-efficiency crown. According to EPA estimates, the award-winning Hyundai Ioniq will return 57 mpg in city driving conditions, 59 mpg on the highway, and 58 mpg in a normal mix of city and highway driving.

How does the Hyundai Ioniq achieve such incredible fuel economy?

There are a lot of factors that go into building a fuel-efficient vehicle, but the powertrain is the most impactful. While you enjoy fewer gas station stops and more money in your pocket, the Ioniq is employing incredible tech in the form of a high-capacity lithium-ion polymer battery system to help achieve industry-best fuel economy ratings.

That battery feeds an electric motor and teams with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder gas engine paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. While the inner workings are complicated, the result is so simple: incredible fuel efficiency without needing to change your driving habits, install a charging system, or worry about finding charging stations on longer drives.

The 2017 Hyundai Ioniq near Denver, CO, also known as the most fuel-efficient car in America, is now available at Schomp Hyundai. Start saving big at that pump, reducing your emissions, and driving one of the most incredible new cars of the year.
