The staff at Car-Specials.com, eager to cater to the evolving needs of car shoppers in today’s automotive landscape, released a list of the Top Five Fuel Efficient Luxury Cars.

CARMEL, Ind. – With ever-changing government standards regarding fuel efficiency, luxury automakers around the world are finding it necessary to continually improve upon their processes and designs to make their vehicles more “green.” Using MPG ratings from the U.S. Department of Energy and “Best Cars” rankings from U.S. News & World Report, the editors at Car-Specials.com compiled a list to help online car shoppers learn more about today’s best fuel-efficient luxury cars.

“Our top five fuel-efficient luxury vehicles are all powered electrically in some capacity, which says something about where the automotive industry is headed,” said Roger Laurendeau, president of Car-Specials.com. “You don’t have to look back very far to a time when luxury automakers had little interest in making hybrid or electric vehicles because they didn’t think these kinds of cars would sell. At Car-Specials.com, we know that consumers are gravitating more and more toward fuel-sipping, environmentally-friendly cars, and we are happy to help them find useful information, compare special offers, and find their next ‘green’ vehicle.”

The Top Five Fuel-Efficient Luxury Cars are as follows:

1. 2013 Tesla Model S – As a purely electric, zero-emission luxury car, the Tesla Model S is truly unique. While the Model S isn’t great for long trips due to its limited range of around 200 miles per charge, its 88-97 mpg (equivalent, varying by battery option chosen) more than doubles the efficiency of most hybrids. Its light carbon footprint, coupled with its nearly universal acclaim for design and performance, allows the Tesla Model S to claim the top spot on this list.

2. 2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid – With 45 mpg combined and a starting MSRP of $35,925, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is an economical and attractive luxury sedan. Finance deals are available on the 2013 model, starting at 0.00% APR for 36 months.

3. 2013 Lexus CT 200h – The CT 200h is a compact luxury car with the added versatility of a hatchback. Starting at just $32,050, it has the lowest price point of any vehicle in the Lexus stable. The CT’s 42 mpg combined rating and $1,250 estimated annual fuel cost also contribute to its affordability.

4. 2013 Lexus ES 300h – The Lexus ES 300h is an all-new model for 2013, replacing the HS hybrid sedan in the U.S. market. The ES Hybrid posted an identical overall rating to the Lexus CT, according to U.S. News, but it fell just short in the mileage category, achieving 40 mpg.

5. 2013 Acura ILX Hybrid – Featuring the lowest MSRP of any vehicle on this list ($28,900), the Acura ILX is a bargain, especially with 0.9% financing available for up to 60 months. However, its respectable 38 mpg combined doesn’t quite reach the lofty efficiency numbers of its competitors.
