The Most Fuel-Efficient New Cars of 2014

Average fuel economy for new cars gets better each model year, and 2014 models are no exception. Plug-ins are the most fuel-efficient, with the equivalent of over 100 miles per gallon. However, pure electric vehicles like the Nissan Leaf and hybrids such as the Chevy Volt comprise less than 1 percent of the 250 million autos sold in America.

Fuel efficiency remains a selling point for car shoppers. Below is a list of the most fuel-efficient cars that aren’t pure plug-ins. It isn’t surprising that they are all hybrids, with the exception of the Mitsubishi Mirage. We’ve listed the 3-cylinder Mirage here for perspective.
