Top 20 Most Fuel Efficient Cars

Although prices at the pump are falling right now in most parts of the country, the sad truth is that those prices will soon rebound back up. Fuel efficiency is still a very important factor when it comes to buying or leasing a new car, and in some cases may even be the most important feature for some buyers.

Forbes understands this and recently unveiled their list of the 20 vehicles with the best fuel economy, compiled with help from the US Environmental Protection Agency. Tops on the list is BMW i3 with a 137/111 e-mpg city/highway, followed by the Chevrolet Spark EV with and Volkswagen e-Golf with 128/109 and 126/105 e-mpg city/highway, respectively. The full list of 20 is below.
