We talk a lot about electric cars, but gains in gasoline fuel efficiency are just as important right now as advancing vehicle battery technology. So it's pretty exciting that Hyundai is aiming for a fleet-wide average fuel economy of at least 50 MPG by 2025.
The automaker is already on track to hit the federal fuel economy requirement of a fleet-wide average of 35.5 MPG a year in advance of the 2016 deadline, and they're hoping to keep upping that efficiency far beyond that marker.
The car company is planning on achieving this through improvements in powertrains, gasoline direct injection, turbocharging, the addition of hybrids and PHEVs to their fleet and utilizing lighter materials.
It's great to see an automaker independently shooting for these types of efficiency gains that we really need to see across the board.
