Green Vehicles Net Top Honors at Auto Show



Fsn10_models_detailflip_apppkg Two gas-saving vehicles were recently awarded the top honors at the 2010 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The Ford Fusion Hybrid was named Car of the Year while Truck of the Year went to the Ford Transit Connect

The Fusion Hybrid, pictured above, is notable both for its fuel efficiency and for details like its environmentally-friendly interior fabric.  An efficiency rating of 41 miles per gallon places it among America's most fuel-efficient mid-size sedans: the average US passenger car mpg rating hovers in the low 20s.  Read about my impressions when I test-drove the Fusion.   

2010-ford-transit-connect The Transit Connect, a commercial cargo van, achieves a fuel-efficiency rating of 22 city/25 highway miles per gallon, placing it on par with most large cars.  While this may not seem like a lot, it's significant when compared to similarly-sized vehicles on the market: the least-efficient cargo vans top out around 13 city/25 highway miles per gallon.

 

Here's the low-down on more green vehicles being featured at the show.

    This is exciting progress! I’m looking forward to the day when electric vehicles become more affordable so that everyone can use them. I am very inspired to know of the progress that is being made. Thanks for sharing!
