Hyundai to have a fleet average of 50 MPG by 2025

Posted on by 16

Hyundai’s fleet of cars and SUVs will all have a combined fuel economy rating of 50 miles per gallon minimum by 2025. At least that’s the goal Hyundai is trying to attain by that time. They are already close, as Hyundai has had one of the best fleet fuel economies of any automaker in the United States.

"We don’t know specifically how to get there, but we do have a roadmap," said Hyundai Motor America top executive John Krafcik at the 2010 CAR Management Briefing Seminars, according to published reports.

The Hyundai Sonata has a combined economy rating of 26 miles per gallon and it can even get 40 mpg on the highway if driven carefully. The car is only offered with a four-cylinder motor and it’s selling like hotcakes.

“If we had the capacity in our Alabama plant, we think we could be doing 20,000 Sonatas a month,” Krafcik said.

The step by Hyundai is much larger than the government’s mandatory 35.5 mpg rating by 2016. It should interesting, if we are all still around at that time, to see how they do it.

I agree with the editor of this site, Hyundai is becoming one of the best automaker not only in the United States but globally. It has achieved numerous praises and the units they’re selling are really competitive in the market.

Admittedly, Hyundai is one of iconic cars that such wonderful cars and they really encourage people to drive. BTW, i have positive thought about their goal for 2025.

The good thing about Hyundai is they never stop in making wonderful vehicle no matter how tough is the competition. And same here, I believe on their goal also.

Its a good thing that Hyundai encourages people to drive their cars but i think by the time we reached 2025, for sure the price of the diesel would be 5 times higher just like what papy_chulo have said.

Hyundai’s ambition is really inspiring. Here’s to hoping they won’t have to eat their words.

oil price going up to 5x normal in 2008 that was just a fluke. that meant nothing!

If they believe that they could actually reach the target before 2025.. then there’s any reason to doubt them..

Even if Hyundai manages it though it’ll probably be mostly because they don’t rely on truck sales like the other manufacturers do, so it’s fairly silly since people who need pickups still need to buy pickups so it doesn’t make Hyundai any greener just because they don’t bother to supply that segment.

The fact is, there is absolutely nothing in Hyundai’s line up that’s currently anything close to 50mpg (or 40mpg). Other "non-leaders" like Toyota at least have Prius for show.

A brand noted for being popular in rental fleets risks developing a cheap image, but Hyundai and KIA are wise to encourage people to drive their cars.

Hyundai is taking a leadership roll again. They will become market leaders by taking this track.

Why does it take too long before they achieve that.

COMMENT:The mpg number is a CAFE number, which is literally designed to be manipulated. Publishing a CAFE number without associated conditions is meaningless. Reprinting meaningless Hyundai statements lacks integrity. .

wow, that was a lot of fuel consumption savings. I guess Hyundai really wanted to smoked the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.
