Chevrolet has been pushing the limits of fuel efficiency for years so you can be confident your vehicle is getting the most out of every drop of fuel. From XFE and Eco models, to hybrids(4) and an electric vehicle with a range-extending gas generator(5), we've explored various options to find the ones best suited for your life. But we won't stop there.
We're committed to finding and developing new solutions every day to meet the growing demand for better fuel economy without ever sacrificing performance. Because in the end, we're committed to you and the life you're leading.
Malibu Eco lets you go the distance while carefully conserving energy. The ECOTEC® 2.4L Direct Injection 4-cylinder engine works with the 15 kW electric motor generator to conserve fuel when it's not needed. The engine also delivers impressive economy with an estimated 37 MPG HWY(1) along with 182 horsepower.
Intelligent engineering on Malibu Eco creates an even greater range of features that boosts energy efficiency. When the car is stopped, it automatically switches from using gas to using battery energy-powered accessories. eAssist features regenerative braking capturing power during braking. It then converts the power to electricity, later storing it for when you truly need it.
That's more miles per gallon. When you're engineering for maximum efficiency everything counts, beginning with what's under the hood. Cruze Eco is equipped with the powerful and efficient 1.4L turbocharged engine and components to help reduce drag and optimize aerodynamics, helping Cruze Eco offer 42 MPG highway(1).
From inside to the outside, every inch of Cruze Eco works to get the most out of every drop of fuel used. Its special lightweight 17" wheels wrapped in ultra-low-rolling resistance tires improve efficiency, while the front fascia's standard active front aero shutter feature closes at highway speed to improve aerodynamics.
Every Chevrolet vehicle is designed for optimal energy efficiency, whether it's gas, battery or both. That kind of efficiency doesn't just happen. It's the end result of a combination of technologies engineered specifically to get you where you want to go without ever having to sacrifice.
Six-speed transmissions offer more gear ratios to keep the engine in its most efficient operating range, and direct injection delivers fuel directly into the combustion chamber, which produces a cooling effect in the chamber to help improve fuel efficiency.
Variable Valve Timing enhances torque at lower rpm and increases horsepower at higher rpm. Active Fuel Management is an engine management system that enables the engine to automatically operate on half of its cylinders under light load conditions, improving fuel efficiency and reducing consumption. The drivetrains on our hybrid vehicles(4) use a combination of battery power and gas engine for propulsion.
These fuel-saving technologies are available on many Chevrolet vehicles.
Volt(5) is a car unlike anything else. It's a full performance electric vehicle that can also run on gas (but only when it needs to).
With a fully charged battery, Volt offers an initial electric range of 35 miles(1) — gas-free and tailpipe emissions-free. And when you need it to go farther, Volt seamlessly transitions to its gas-powered extended-range generator for a total range of up to 375 miles(7). And charging is simple. Your Volt will be fully charged in about 10 hours, depending on climate, with a standard 120-volt line, or in as little as 4 hours using an available dedicated 240-volt charging station.
So wherever you need to go — around the corner or across the country — Volt can get you there.
Every one of Chevrolet's hybrid vehicles is engineered to give you maximum capability without sacrificing efficiency. That includes America's first two-mode hybrid full-size pickup, Silverado Hybrid(4), and America's first full-size SUV, Tahoe Hybrid(4).
Tahoe Hybrid offers better fuel economy than the competition(6) with 20 MPG city/23 highway(1). And even with this fuel efficiency, it's still powerful with 332 horsepower, 367 lb.-ft. of torque and up to 6,200 lbs.(8) of towing capacity.
Or get Silverado Hybrid with 20 MPG city, 23 highway(1) without sacrificing the Chevy truck capability you depend on, including:
