The plug-in hybrid Mercedes C300e came out on top

According to the motoring brand What Car?, the most fuel-efficient new car currently on sale is the Mercedes C300e.

The plug-in hybrid saloon returned a staggering 470.8mpg in official testing with a fully charged battery.

While real-world miles-per-gallon figures are rarely anything like the ones achieved in the lab, it’s still a decent indicator of which cars will use the least fuel and save you the most money.

Second on the list is the Volvo S60 Recharge T8, another plug-in saloon that managed 403mpg in official testing.

Third is the Range Rover Sport P440e, another PHEV, but this time a large luxury SUV that returned 341.2mpg.

The full top 10 list looks like this:

The electric ranges of PHEVs have dramatically improved in recent times, meaning they will easily handle the average commute or weekend trip without needing to use their engine.

Drivers urged to do TWO simple things that will help you save £100s on fuel
Why are petrol prices so high and how can you cut your fuel costs?

For instance, the winning C300e can travel 62 miles on electricity alone.

What Car? editor Steve Huntingford said: “Given the rising cost of living, things like fuel economy are an increasingly important consideration for car buyers.

“The good news is modern PHEVs, in particular, are capable of incredible efficiency if you do mostly short journeys and plug them in regularly.”
