These days, it has become a trend that carmakers are promoting their cars by claiming that it delivers 40mpg of mileage figure. This figure might be possible somewhere else but certainly not in the real world. They promote their cars with the fuel economy that could be achieved on the highway rather than city.

Carmakers are trying their level best to cash on the fuel economy of the car. In recent years, mileage has been given the highest weightage while buying a car. Ten years ago, this wasn’t the case, but then at that point of time fuel was less than $2 per gallon. From November 2007, the fuel prices started rising with a supersonic speed. Therefore, now the car manufacturers are pushing themselves to produces high mileage cars, which is the current demand today.

Coming back to Hyundai Elantra lawsuit, Hyundai picked out to promote its car with the highway fuel economy figures, but it has not and had opted for the lower city mileage figures, the lawsuit wouldn’t have been filed against it.
