Consumer Reports Now Lists Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient Cars That Aren’t Electric

AUG 29 2017 BY ERIC LOVEDAY

The Hyundai IONIQ Electric, Toyota Prius Prime and Tesla Model 3 are the highest rated (MPGe) vehicles available today, but what if we exclude plug-ins from the list and look at the Top 10 most fuel efficient non plug-ins?

Why would we do that? We wouldn’t. But Consumer Reports now has a tool/list that allows plug-ins to be excluded from the fuel efficiency equation.

Here’s the Top 10 list, minus plug-ins:

10. Toyota Camry Hybrid

9. Ford Fusion Hybrid SE

8. Hyundai Sonata Hybrid

7. Lexus CT 200h

6. Toyota Prius V Three

5. Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid

4. Toyota Prius C Two

3. Kia Niro EX

2. Hyundai Ioniq

1. Toyota Prius Three

Just for comparative purposes, we’ll point out that the Hyundai IONIQ Electric returns 136 MPGe, while the most fuel efficient non plug-in gets 52 MPG combined. Not even in the same ballpark, so just by a plug-in if efficiency matters to you.
