Report: Hyundai and Kia want to boost fuel economy by 25 percent

Hyundai and Kia are looking to redeem themselves after an issue with overstating fuel economy ratings for many of their recent models.

In a new report from Reuters, Hyundai and Kia want to boost their fuel economy across the fleet by about 25 percent by 2020. They look to accomplish this from more advanced powertrains, less weight, new diesel engines and improving transmissions.

This might be slightly hindered by the recent fine of $300 million Hyundai by the US Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Justice, and the California Air Resources Board.

Hyundai’s Chris Hosford spoke with AutoBlogGreen, who shared that Hyundai set new fuel economy improvement targets, mainly for the US.
