The Age of 200 to 300 MPG Is Almost Here

General Motors and Nissan traded barbs this week over which of their new green-tech cars will get the best gas mileage. GM began the war of words by claiming that its Chevy Volt, a plug-in hybrid that goes on sale late next year, will achieve a whopping 237 miles per gallon in city driving. The Japanese automaker responded, saying that its new Nissan Leaf, an all-electric vehicle to be introduced in 2012, will zoom in at 367 mpg, and will be significantly cheaper than the $40,000 Volt. Although both mpg numbers are a bit misleading, there is no doubt that the age of incredible gas mileage is nearly upon us.
