    Probably a Ford Escape Hybrid.
    M.P.G. in the low 30's.

    The Ford Escape Hybrid is in use by a few Govt. Agencies. Can be found at a good price at auctions.

    But what is the carbon footprint of the generated power used to charge it's batteries ?
    What is the plant efficiency ratio of energy consumed to energy produced ?
    What is the loss on the power transmission lines ?
    How much is lost to heat sync while charging ?

    Buses get great mileage as well.

    Get a turbo diesel car like I have 45+mpg and less emissions! for the kms/miles you do its a no-brainer really.

    I would check out the new version of the Escalade. It drops to 4-cylinders when 8-cylinders are not needed. I get average of 20 miles per gallon.

    Mercedes gl350 or R350 or the 320 model depending on your market year requirments

    They'll get over 30mpg hwyand a couple emission mods will yield around 40mpg I like the 2008 version since it isn't bluetec but that might be too old . I drive a 2014 Explorer I'm thinking about adding to SUV it gets 22mpg . Denver has very easy vehicle requirments

    Let me get this straight, you were looking at buying a Tesla X which is priced around $88,000 and you are worried that a 30-40k SUV will get 16mpg?
