Japanese Auto maker Mazda had announced that its latest car Mazda2/Demio subcompact would get fuel economy of 30 km/liter (70 mpg) without the help of an electric motor.
Mazda2 is due to launch in first half of 2011 in japan and has upgraded Mazda's next-generation gasoline and diesel engine and transmission technology, dubbed SKYACTIV.
"I promise that we will offer the Demio at a lower price than a hybrid of the same segment," Mazda CEO Takashi Yamanouchi told a news conference .
Mazda said its new direct injection gasoline engine achieves big mileage improvements mainly due to the world's highest engine compression ratio.
This car will be the most fuel-efficient gasoline car on the road.
