Which Hyundai models are the most fuel-efficient? Of course, hybrid, electric, and plug-in vehicles are going to lead in fuel efficiency. Still, it is good to compare them all, so we have the Hyundai vehicle fuel economy ratings below.

What is MPGe?
MPGe stands for miles-per-gallon equivalent, and it is a similar measurement for electric vehicles. Since they do not run on gasoline fuel, it is impossible to give them a true gallon-usage rating. MPGe allows you to see how they compare to gasoline vehicles despite the different sources of energy.
