TrueCar has compiled a list of the top ten most fuel-efficient hybrid and non-hybrid cars currently being sold, based on fuel economy and cost of gas, per 15,000 miles driven annually.
According to the publication, of the top 10 hybrids, four have a combined 40-MPG or better while every vehicle in the top 10 non-hybrids offers a combined 30-MPG or better. The list only looked at 2011 model vehicles and did not include pure electric vehicles because there is no cost associated with filling up a tank.
“Hybrids offer great fuel economy but most don’t provide the value consumers are seeking,” said Jesse Toprak, Vice President of Industry Trends and Insights at TrueCar.com. “If you’re looking to save the most amount of money, look at the overall picture from the cost of the vehicle and how much you would spend on fuel to see what vehicle offers the best overall value.”
