Hybrids Dominate Fuel-Efficiency Test

Prius Definitely no surprises here: In EPA’s recently released 2010 fuel-efficiency test results, hybrids overwhelmed the list of the most efficient cars, including the Toyota Prius, the Ford Fusion Hybrid, and the Mercury Milan Hybrid.

Newcomers to the top-ten list include two Lexus hybrid models. The only non-hybrid car on the top-ten list is the Smart fortwo, a fact we hope will cure those with car envy for Bentleys or Lamborghinis; both landed in the bottom ten.

You might be wondering how electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids fared. Unfortunately, they weren’t even tested. The EPA hasn’t figured out reliable ways to so do quite yet.

For more information about  the test results, visit the EPA’s site.
