Honda has the second-highest average fuel economy among auto manufacturers and reported the
largest improvement from the year before, according to the new edition of an annual report from
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said last week that Mazda had the highest average fuel
economy for its fleet in 2015, with 29.6 mpg, an increase of 0.2 mpg from the prior year.
Honda, which assembles several models in central Ohio, was next with 29.9 mpg, up 1.6 mpg from
the prior year.
“Honda’s strong showing, year after year, reflects sustained commitment in the area of fuel
economy and greenhouse gas emissions performance,” the company said.
Fiat-Chrysler had good news and bad news. On the positive side, its results improved by 1 mpg,
which was the second best improvement among the dozen manufacturers. At the same time, the company’s
truck-heavy lineup meant it had the lowest overall score, with 21.8 mpg.
