For the second year running, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named Mazda the most fuel-efficient auto manufacturer in the U.S. in its Light Duty Fuel Economy Trends report.
Mazda had the highest fleet-wide adjusted fuel economy performance, with an average of 28.1 miles per gallon, and the lowest adjusted CO2 emissions, with only 316 grams per mile.
“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,” commented Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, Mazda North American Operations.
Part of Mazda’s success can be attributed to its unique Skyactiv technology: a suite of component and engineering technologies that includes ultra-high compression ratio gas engines, super-efficient manual and automatic transmissions, lightweight chassis and body components, reduced rolling resistance, and low-drag body styling.
With all of these aspects put together, it’s no wonder Mazda gets the great fuel economy that keeps people coming back to Lancaster Mazda!
