In a recent 2011 study conducted by Maritz Research, more than 40 percent of car consumers look at fuel economy as an “extremely important” option when shopping for a new vehicle. Taking that fact one step further, the annual study also found that 1 in 3 consumers believe that fuel efficiency will play the largest impact regarding the next vehicle they purchase. That percentage is even higher among younger buyers.
Fuel efficiency numbers are evolving strongly due to the millennial age group, ranging from late teens to early 30’s, and their large emphasis on fuel economy. 46 percent of Millennials view fuel economy as “extremely important” during their new vehicle search; this is the single highest percentage in any other age group by a landslide. Of those 46 percent, 41 percent believe that fuel economy is the single most important option when buying a new vehicle.
If you’re one of those seeking optimal fuel efficiency on your next car, you might want to check out some Honda models. Honda is renowned for fuel-efficiency because of their hybrid, electric and fuel-cell vehicle selection, and the EcoAssist technology they have implemented over the years.
