How to buy a fuel efficient car
You can buy a fuel efficient car in India by choosing one with the right category.
If you want to go for a sedan, choose between class 3 and class 4. Class 3 cars are those that have an engine capacity of 1.6-1.8 litres while class 4 cars have engines of 1.2-1.5 litres. If you want to go for a van, choose between a multi-purpose vehicle or sports utility vehicle. Multi-purpose vehicles are those that have an engine capacity of 2.5-3 litres while sports utility vehicles have engines of 3-3.5 litres
The government has also released information about the fuel efficiency ratings for these cars as well as their price tags and the power output per litre of their engines (in kilowatts).
What are the advantages of these cars?
The advantages of these cars, according to the government, are that they are affordable, efficient and have features such as ABS, airbags and anti-skid and traction control. Some of the cars in this list even come with AC.
Another advantage is that these cars are compliant with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for local pollutants. These standards are updated every three years by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB). They include particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide (CO) and sulfur dioxide (SO2).
Lastly, these cars have a long lifespan – up to 15 years! The car will be less expensive to maintain as well.
How to save on gas money.
There are a few ways to save on gas money. One way is to opt for a hybrid or electric car. These are the most fuel efficient cars in India although they may not be the most practical option. Another way is to sell your old car and buy a new one with better fuel efficiency. Buying a new car will also help reduce carbon emissions by 15 percent in five years, which is another goal of the government!
Some other ways to save on gas include selling used electronics and buying rechargeable batteries, using public transport when possible, and using renewable energy sources like solar power. This is just an example of what you can do, but it would be great if you could implement some of these tips into your daily routine.
