Fuel Efficient Car, the Smart Fortwo Passion

Interestingly, the #2 car on the market right now for best fuel economy, the Smart Fortwo Passion, has seen a large decrease in sales in the United States.

No, it’s not because Americans favor gas guzzlers, because the trend continues to be to more fuel efficient cars.  In March, almost every carmaker saw an increase in sales but Smart Fortwo saw a decrease of 37 percent.  This for a car that gets 30 mpg in the city and 44 mpg on the highway for a 39 mpg overall.

Why? One can only assume the size of the Smart Fortwo has something to do with it.  Make no mistake about it, this is a very popular automobile in Europe, possibly because of narrow roadways and increased traffic.  However, that European popularity has yet to transfer across the Atlantic Ocean.

If you are serious about Living Simple, and you want to reduce your gas expenditure, the Smart Fortwo is a car worth looking at.
