Even if fuel prices in the UAE are relatively low, this does not mean that drivers and car owners are unconcerned about buying fuel-efficient vehicles. The benefits of fuel efficient cars are numerous, but the two most essential are reduced fuel consumption and environmental friendliness. Automobiles with powerful engines and efficient fuel-management systems are being developed by a number of car brands throughout the world. Electric and hybrid vehicles are frequently recognised as the most fuel-efficient vehicle options. Eco-friendly autos have been in high demand since the automotive industry began to flourish.
