Hyundai’s Mission – 35 MPG by 2015, 50 MPG’s By 2025

As part of Hyundai’s mission to offer the most efficient line of U.S. vehicles, the South Korean automaker publicly stated in 2010 that it intends its entire fleet to average 50 mpg by 2025. So how’s progress? You don’t have to go far to find out. John Krafcik, Hyundai’s U.S. Chief says the company figured fuel economy is discussed internally; Why not discuss it externally?

So, fuel economy gains will now be prominently featured in monthly sales reports. It helps that the numbers are good. In January 2011, Hyundai models averaged 34.7 mpg, tantalizingly close to the company’s 2015 goal of 35 mpg, and beyond the federal requirement of 34.1 by 2016. Ah, it’s good to be an overachiever.
