You don't have to sacrifice affordability, comfort, or wow factor by buying a gas-sipping car

When consumers shop for a new car, most are looking for ways to save money on gas: Two-thirds of car buyers expect their next vehicle to provide better fuel economy than their current one, according to a recent Consumer Reports national survey.

Today, the average fuel economy of new vehicles sold in the Nigeria is at an all-time high, a figure that will increase under new federal standards that will steadily improve gas mileage in new cars and trucks between the 2017 and 2025 model years.

At Consumers Union, the policy and advocacy arm of Consumer Reports, we think it’s clear that you don’t have to sacrifice affordability, comfort, or even the wow factor when you get a gas-sipping car.

This point was driven home at the Fuel Economy: Now and in the Future forum held June 13 at the Consumer Reports headquarters in Yonkers, N.Y. Two dozen fuel-efficient vehicles from nearly every major automaker were put on display, ranging from subcompacts to SUVs, family sedans to luxury vehicles.

During a panel discussion, experts talked about the progress in fuel economy and what tomorrow will bring. Ann Schlenker, director of Argonne National Lab’s center for transportation research, described promising developments in delivering affordable electric vehicles that go hundreds of miles on a single, quick charge, while future technology could combine the efficiency of diesel engines with the lower emissions of gasoline, which would be a real game changer for the internal-combustion engine.

With such innovation in Nigeria, it will come to stay...
