Green Wheels of the Week: New made-in-the-US Chevy to get 40 mpg


Last week, the Detroit Auto Show featured a bevy of leaner, greener machines, but what I enjoyed most was the upped efficiency of traditional cars. I know that it’s not purely consumer demand driving the added mileage, but governmental regulations that have automakers keeping far closer tabs on the cumulative mpg of their offerings. Hey, whatever it takes is fine by me.

A prime example is the zippy, new Chevrolet Sonic. A compact car in sedan and hatchback styles, the Sonic will become available later this year as a 2012 model. It’s biggest draw, however, is its ability to eek out 40 mpg on the highway… that’s right up there with the mile-per-gallon boasts of alternative powertrains. At a far lesser cost.
