ATLANTA--May 8, 2014: Younger car shoppers are placing more importance on fuel efficiency than their older counterparts, according to new research from AutoTrader.comŽ. When asked what factors most influence which car to purchase, fuel efficiency ranks second only to price for Millennials (ages 18-34). Millennials are also three times more likely to consider purchasing an electric vehicle than older generations.

In response to this,'s expert editorial team has named the ten "Must Shop" vehicles for consumers who are looking to reduce or eliminate their visits to the gas station. The list includes vehicles at a range of price points and powertrains, and is designed to give car shoppers choices depending on their budget and personal preferences.

"There are more options out there for shoppers interested in fuel efficiency than ever before, and the technology just keeps getting better," said Brian Moody, site editor. "It used to be that people who wanted a fuel efficient vehicle might have to compromise on style and performance, and that's definitely not the case today. The cars we've recognized fall into that sweet spot of 'having it all' – and many are at a price that's within reach for car shoppers who are just starting out."

The new vehicles editors say should be on the shopping list of fuel-conscious consumers include:

Chevrolet Volt Ford Fusion Hybrid Honda Accord Hybrid Infiniti Q50 Hybrid Lexus ES 300h Lexus GS 450h Mazda CX-5 Nissan Leaf Tesla Model S Volkswagen Passat TDI
