Some, or maybe all hybrids get a little better in town than on the highway, also. For the same reason, I guess?

Interesting list of very fuel efficient cars and at the bottom is a list of not fuel efficient cars.
I saw a list by Kiplinger yesterday of the most fuel efficient cars but couldn't locate the page today.
What I found interesting was electric cars got less miles on the highway as compared to the city.
Apparently achieving and maintaining the higher speeds was more draining.
