Most Efficient Cars In US — 2014

The EPA has updated its list of the most efficient cars in the United States. So, I decided I’d do an updated post on this. However, I’m going to do something a little different this time. I’m also going to throw in recent models that don’t have a 2014 version yet, or won’t at all, but would make this list if it were a little more inclusive.

I think I’ll also just go ahead and update this article as the list changes throughout the year, so bookmark this page if you want to keep it as an ongoing reference.

1. 2014 Chevy Spark EV
119 MPGe (128 City / 109 Highway)

2. 2014 Honda Fit EV
118 MPGe (132 City / 105 Highway)

3. 2014 Fiat 500e
116 MPGe (122 City / 108 Highway)

4. 2014 Nissan Leaf
114 MPGe (126 City / 101 Highway)

5. 2012 Mitsubishi i
112 MPGe (126 City / 99 Highway)

6. 2014 smart electric drive
107 MPGe (122 City / 93 Highway)

7. 2014 Ford Focus Electric
105 MPGe (110 City / 99 Highway)

8. 2013 Tesla Model S (60 kWh battery)
95 MPGe (94 City / 97 Highway)

9. 2013 Tesla Model S (85 kWh battery)
89 MPGe (88 City / 90 Highway)

10. 2014 Toyota RAV4 EV
76 MPGe (78 City / 74 Highway)

11. 2014 Chevy Volt
62 MPGE (63 City / 61 Highway)

12. 2014 Ford C-Max Energi
58 MPGE (63 City / 54 Highway)

12. 2014 Ford Fusion Energi
58 MPGE (63 City / 54 Highway)

12. 2014 Toyota Prius Plug-in
58 MPGE (59 City / 56 Highway)

Clearly, pure-electric vehicles take the cake when it comes to “fuel” efficiency, followed by efficient plug-in hybrids and then conventional hybrids (not on this list). A conventional hybrid, let alone a full gasmobile, can’t even make it into the top 10 anymore. One day, kids will be shocked to hear that we had to fill cars up with inefficient gasoline.
