President Bush signed into law today The Energy Independence and Security Act raising the minimum fuel efficiency requirements on automobiles. Hearing this news, I decided to check out some of the most fuel efficient cars on the market and some concept cars soon to be on the market. Here is a list of the most fuel efficient cars currently on the market.
The concept cars have a lot more flash and style, but are unavailable. The electric Chevy Volt is getting a lot of attention. I think the idea of being completely off gas is exciting not only environmentally, but monetarily. Another concept that could catch on is Toyota's Alessandro Volta. It seats three on a row with a "drive-by-wire" control. This allows anyone in the car to drive. It also can produce a 0-60 in four seconds. Not bad for a hybrid or a Ferrari!
