The Most Fuel Efficient Cars of 2013

If you’re getting a bit bored with your old car, chances are you’re looking for something cool to replace it, right? Well, the models on this list certainly fit into that category, but more than that, these cars are also the most fuel efficient on the market today, making them more desirable than any others on running costs alone. So, if you’re interested in saving some money at the pump, have a quick read through and i’ll try to highlight the best solutions available to you.

Volkswagen XL1

Volkswagen XL1

I thought perhaps I should begin by mentioning the most fuel efficient car in the world – the Volkswagen XL1. This baby can achieve a truly shocking 330 mpg with its cutting-edge diesel hybrid engine.  Though it will cost around £100,000 to buy new when it gets released, if you keep your eyes open over the next few years, you should be able to pick up second hand models for around half that price.

Honda CR-Z

Perfect for both city and urban driving, the Honda CR-Z is honored with the title “world’s first sporty hybrid”. For only around £20,000 on the road, it’s easy to see why this car seems to be selling far better than some of its competitors. With around 60 mpg, it’s certainly not as efficient as the VW XL1, but at only ? of the price, who could complain? I’m glad Honda’s thrown their hat into the hybrid market, it’s very in-keeping with their motto “the power of dreams”.

Toyota Yaris Hybrid

Far cheaper than Toyotas other hybrid; the Prius, the new model Yaris is more fuel efficient than ever. Allowing a fantastic 80 mpg on standard models, it’s easy to see why so many people are now looking towards purchasing one of these babies, especially people who live and work in busy urban environments. Still, the Yaris has no trouble reaching speeds of around 90 mph on motorways, so it’s just as suited to long distance travel.

Vauxhall Ampera

Vauxhall have dubbed the Ampera a range-extending hybrid – and with good reason. With a very small engine that gets used as an electricity generator to power the electric motor, this car is capable of achieving over 300 mpg because it’s constantly recharging itself whilst on the move. As it only emits 27g/km of CO2, you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment if you choose to purchase one.

Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid

Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid

As a very large car, you might be surprised to learn that the new Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid can manage on average 148 mpg – an astonishingly impressive distance. Equipped with a 213 bhp turbocharged 5-cylinder engine, and with the ability to run solely on electric power for short distances (like during traffic jams etc), we’re certainly expecting to see very impressive sales as we head towards 2013.

So there you have it my friends. I hope you found something that tickles your fancy.

I’ve seen the future – and it’s electric!
