Hyundai Intends to Meet 2020 Fuel-Efficiency Standard by 2015


Man­u­fac­tur­ers must meet fleet fuel aver­age of 35 mpg by 2020 for light vehi­cles sold in the US. Hyundai intends to meet that stan­dard by 2015 by imple­ment­ing advanced tech­nol­o­gy cost­ing $100–200 per vehi­cle which will achieve 10% fuel sav­ings.

Cur­rent US stan­dard is 27.5 mpg for cars and 22.5 mpg for light trucks
