Fuel efficiency most sought after quality in purchase of cars or trucks
Fuel efficiency most sought after quality in purchase of cars or trucks. Cars with higher levels of fuel efficiency attract buyers like bees to honey.
Till a few years ago, Maruti Suzuki Alto and Hyundai Motors’ Santro dominated the scene where fuel efficient vehicles were concerned. Today, this picture is altogether different with most auto manufacturers honing their skills on introducing fuel efficient cars. Tata Nano compares well on this front, offering a mileage of 25.4 kmpl while Indica offers 25 kmpl. Chevrolet Beat, Nissan Micra and a host of other models also offer equally competitive fuel consumption ratings.
Trucks in India form the lifeline where trade, industry and commerce are concerned. These trucks are loaded to the brim and pose a threat to life and limb on Indian streets and highways and yet are an intrinsic part of our wellbeing. It is these heavy duty vehicles that account for an alarming amount of fuel consumption. Challenges apart, regulations related to fuel consumption of trucks needs to be tackled on a war footing. Within a growing economy, the demand for trucks is increasing by leaps and bounds and with it the demand for fuel.
