Most Fuel Efficient Crossovers

It wasn’t that long ago that the typical family-oriented passenger car was notably more fuel-efficient than the average SUV. Today, the efficiency gap between the two vehicle types is much smaller than it used to be.

Nissan e-Power

Though the overall numbers are still relatively small, consumers around the globe are buying more electric vehicles than ever before.
