How are cars more efficient now than they were 10 years ago?

    Hybrid vehicles have improved efficiency of gasoline-powered cars. However, regular internal combustion engines have not changed much. If you compare non-hybrid vehicles on to see for yourself some of the exact figures. Changes in aerodynamic designs can help improve a vehicle’s efficiency a little, too. The trick to making a car more fuel-efficient is making it smaller, lighter, and more aerodynamic. Also, and this is why we are not seeing dramatic improvements in fuel efficiency than we should, it helps to cut down on horsepower. However, auto manufacturers have not been doing that because they think that all of their customers want more powerful cars. Personally, I don’t see the appeal in having a car that can go 120mph when the speed limits are half of that.
