Cars to Get Excruciatingly Clear New Fuel Efficiency Labels

by Andrew Price

September 2, 2010

Here's another example of the first design. This label is for a standard gas car that gets a B.

There's also a second design, with more landscapish proportions, which could accommodate a bit more information (at the expense, perhaps, of foolproof clarity). It would work especially well for explaining the economic ins and outs of dual fuel vehicles like the Chevy Volt.

 

You can see all the proposed labels, with explanations, and comment on the designs over at the EPA.
