Building economical cars isn’t done with just the environment in mind. Better fuel economy means more money saved. The thought process is that in order to have an economical car, you have to buy an economical car. We don’t agree!
We came across an experiment done by the AA that proves you can be economical in a non eco-car. They asked 50 of their employees to take part in an eco-driving experience. The staff drove their vehicles as normal for the first week and then applied the AA’s economy advise for the 2 week. The results were very interesting and demonstrated that you don’t need to buy an economical car to be economical behind the wheel.
