Natural Resources Canada Office of Energy Efficiency recognizes the manufacturers of the most fuel-efficient new vehicles each year with the ecoENERGY for Vehicles Awards.

The 2009 recipients were announced by Minister of Natural Resources at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto February 11, 2009, in partnership with the Canadian automobile industry and its associations.

“Fuel efficient vehicles are good for the environment and help drivers save money on gas,” said Minister Raitt. “By recognizing those manufacturers who are leading the charge to improve fuel efficiency, we are also providing consumers with better information on the options that are available to them.”

The ecoENERGY for Vehicles Awards are a part of the Government of Canada’s ecoENERGY initiative – a $3.6-billion set of focused measures to help Canadians use energy more efficiently, boost renewable energy supplies and develop cleaner energy technologies.
