Mazda Named the Most Fuel-Efficient Auto Manufacturer in the U.S.
In the most recent Light Duty Fuel Economy Trends report, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized Mazda Motor Corporation as the most fuel-efficient auto manufacturer in the U.S. According to the report, Mazda led the chart for model year 2014 with the highest fleet-wide adjusted fuel economy performance of 29.4 miles per gallon and the lowest CO2 emissions of 328.
This is the third consecutive year, Mazda has achieved the highest fuel efficiency, without offering a hybrid or electric vehicle. Mazda credits their success to their SKYACTIV Technology.
"At Mazda, Driving Matters and so does fuel economy,“ said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, Mazda North American Operations. "Using SKYACTIV Technology, Mazda has been able to achieve class-leading fuel efficiency in nearly every segment it competes in. This achievement verifies that Mazda has evolved to offer what others can’t, vehicles that are of high-quality, great looking, fun-to-drive and fuel efficient.“
Mazda's SKYACTIV Technology can be found throughout its vehicle line up including the Mazda3, Mazda6, CX-5 and in the all-new MX-5 Miata and CX-3. The Mazda CX-3 crossover utility vehicle has been rated with an EPA-estimated fuel economy as high as 29 mpg city/35 mpg highway, which positions CX-3's fuel economy as class-leading among all 2015 and 2016 subcompact crossover utility vehicles.
Mazda has also been named by U.S. News and World Report as the 2016 Best Car Brand.
