Nissan Group is Still Most Efficient Full-Line Automaker

In a press release issued early today by Nissan North America, the automaker announced that it has once again been named the most fuel efficient full-line automaker in the United States. The year 2016 marks the third year in a row that the automaker has ranked number one in the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) "CO2 and Fuel Economy Trends" report. Nissan's fleet-wide fuel economy rating of 28.3 adjusted combined mpg marks an increase of 1.3 mpg over last year's report, and puts Nissan ahead of every other automotive manufacturer.

"As consumers demand more fuel-efficient options, Nissan continues to incorporate engineering advancements such as reduced powertrain friction, improved aerodynamics and the use of efficient Xtronic transmissions in each new model," said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America. "Evolving industry regulations continue to challenge us to provide the safest, most efficient products to our customers, and this distinction reaffirms the exemplary effort our engineers and designers have taken to ensure continuous vehicle improvements and owner satisfaction."

"Full-line" refers to the fact that Nissan sells a variety of passenger cars, SUVs, CUVs, pickup trucks, and vans, to meet a broad range of consumer needs.
