You might be balking at 9 MPG, when industry standards put eco-friendly cars at 40-plus MPG. EV’s and Hybrids usually get something in the lines of 90 MPG equivalency. But 9 miles per gallon?
Consider this: 20% of America’s fuel consumption is logged in by the hauling industry, meaning trucks, delivery vans and the like. And those big, hunkering heavy duty trucks get an average mileage of 6 MPG. This means that 9 MPG is actually a big improvement, according to the EPA and the NHTSA.
