Hyundai petitions to declare August as Fuel Efficiency Month

In an attempt to save the environment from green house gases and other car emission pollutions, Hyundai has taken an initiative and it has requested the US government to declare the month of August as the "National Fuel Efficiency Month." Notably, Hyundai cars in US are some of the best cars and Hyundai Accent, Hyundai Elantra and Hyundai Azera are the top three best Hyundai cars. Elantra is acclaimed as the best affordable small car while Azera is among affordable large cars in US. Significantly Hyundai has asked the people of Washington to sign the petition at the White House website. Till now there are only 195 petitions and Hyundai needs 24, 805 petitions signatures till July 4 in order to be accepted by the White House.

Notably, it is an ongoing endeavour by the Korean car maker to make aware people about the benefits of driving in an economic mode and driving fuel efficiently. During the promotion of fuel efficient driving, Hyundai will be promoting the need and benefits of driving Hyundai cars in an economic way that not only saves the environment but also money as well. Where the efficient driving puts a check on emissions and ill effects to the environment, it also helps people do their part in saving the environment.

Hyundai has proposed to make August as the month of National Fuel Efficiency as it is at this time that most of the American set out on holidays and excursions in their cars. John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America has reportedly told media that driving fuel efficiently the Hyundai cars which are the most fuel efficient cars not only saves fuel but also protects the environment. Even simple measures lead to high fuel efficiency and low emission and slight change to the driving behavior altogether can lead to efficient driving, he added.

Notably, where Hyundai has taken such an initiative, car makers in India seldom take such steps to promote efficient driving. However the one of the oil company is regularly floating TV ads about fuel efficiency and the government used to float ads in media regarding efficient use of energy sources but in the perspective when cars are increasing day by day, the car makers should also organize a pan India energy efficiency promotion drives. CarKhabri will be there to promote such moves by the car companies.
