Mazda has just unveiled a host of new concepts and up-coming models at the The 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013 that includes diesel, natural gas and hybrid technology.
Diesel engines are more efficient than their gasoline counterparts. There are several reasons for this; they burn a more energy-dense fuel, they’re run much higher compression ratios and there are fewer pumping losses since they have no throttle bodies. But what if you could take the best attributes of both powerplant types and combine them into one unit? That’s exactly what engineers at Hyundai are doing.
A recent survey suggests half of Americans believe government has unfairly placed bets on electrified cars over clean diesel vehicles.
While diesel engines are beginning to gain ground in the North American market, their dominance in Europe could be coming to an end.
General Motors’ two new mid-size trucks will most likely debut during the 2013 L.A. Auto Show in late November, GM spokesman Otie McKinley said.
Getting “mileage” out of a purchase can mean more than saving gas. There’s cargo capacity, seat space and price to take into account on top of hunting for high miles per gallon.
You might be surprised by how many new cars there are in dealer showrooms today that offer all of those attributes without compromising much in any category. With that in mind, here are 10 family-friendly options that can achieve at least 40 mpg.
This is the only vehicle on the list with a traditional gasoline drivetrain. Think about that for a minute…
Mazda is the only company with a vehicle this size that isn’t using a hybrid system and is boasting up to 40 mpg. That’s impressive for such a small company. In AutoGuide’s recent mid-size sedan comparison, the car returned impressive fuel economy, too. It wasn’t the claimed 40 mpg, but our car wasn’t equipped with the mildly mpg-boosting i-Eloop system and it still managed to return the second-best fuel economy.
Plenty of new diesel models are coming to America with industry watchers predicting the number of diesel-powered cars will double in 2014.
A new study suggests that luxury car buyers could be losing interest in alternative fuel vehicles.
Expect the number of fuel efficient vehicles offered by General Motors grow in the next four years.
According to a recent study by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, diesel owners save about $2,000 to $6,000 over three to five years compared to owners of corresponding gas vehicles.
Flight is an amazing thing. You can board a jet in Pittsburgh at breakfast time and dine on escargot in Paris for dinner. Never in human history has mankind been able to travel so quickly. It took Christopher Columbus months to cross the Atlantic, now we accomplish the same feat in as few as eight hours; the whole process is as routine as flipping on a light switch or cleaning up a murder scene.
