Fuel-Efficient Car Gap Growing
13 February 2007
The number of vehicle models sold in the US that get more than 40 mpg has dropped from 2005 levels, even as the ranks of highly fuel-efficient vehicles sold overseas—but not available to US consumers—is growing rapidly, according to data that will be presented this week by the Civil Society Institute (CSI) think tank and its 40MPG.org project.
A new CSI/40MPG.org national opinion poll to be released at the same time will show that there is an unsatisfied market of millions of Americans who want highly fuel-efficient vehicles but have been frustrated in their attempts to get them.
The survey conducted by Opinion Research Corporation (ORC) also will show that an overwhelming majority of Americans now believe that they should be able to buy the highly fuel-efficient cars made by foreign and American auto manufacturers that are available for sale in other nations but not in the United States.
