Mazda Tops EPA Fuel Economy Trends Report for Second Time

Every year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) releases a report that highlights the most fuel-efficient carmakers in the United States. This year, the EPA Fuel Economy Trends Report has found Mazda Motor Corporation to be the number one carmaker in fuel economy for the second time in a row. Due mostly to the company’s use of their unique SkyActiv Technology, Mazda cars have reduced emissions significantly, helping keep the earth (and customers’ wallets) greener.

Mazda - EPA Fuel Economy Trends Report“Mazda has never been one to rest on its laurels, continuing to work hard, innovate, and engineer vehicles that offer class-leading fuel economy in nearly every segment it competes in,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO of Mazda North American Operations. “Because the internal combustion engine is still used in more than 90 percent of the cars and SUVs sold in North America today, we chose to focus on perfecting both the operation and performance of the engine, as well as all the other systems and components that affect efficiency. Offering this technology—at an affordable price—to every consumer will help improve our overall environmental impact.”

And improve Mazda’s environmental impact, it has. The Japanese carmaker boasts the highest fleet-wide fuel economy with 28.1 miles per gallon, while also having the lowest adjusted CO2 emissions of 316. So next time you are looking for a fuel-efficient vehicle, make sure you stop in to Steet Ponte Mazda and see what green cars we have to offer!
