Building efficient vehicles across the board is a priority for Nissan Group. If you ever had any doubt about that, the automaker’s ranking as the number one full-line automaker in the new EPA fuel economy review should put those concerns to rest.
Every year, the Environmental Protection Agency releases a “Trends” Report in which it evaluates the overall fuel economy of auto manufacturers.
Nissan Group, which includes Infiniti models, showed the largest improvement in fuel efficiency, moving from an average mpg rating of 24.1 in 2013 to 26.2 this year. The closest automaker trails Nissan’s score by 1.1 mpg.
“Reaching this point is a direct result of a dedicated company-wide effort to scrutinize every aspect of each new model to extract the most fuel efficiency possible,” said Pierre Loing, Nissan North America’s vice president of Product Planning. “Our engineers and designers have worked hard to get us here, and we look to continuously improve fuel efficiency of our models to face the challenges of future regulations while surpassing customer expectations.”
