General Motors says during March 2012, combined sales of 12 of their models that get 30 mpg or better have risen to 100,000 units. Total sales for the month will likely point to a new record when they are released tomorrow, April 3rd.
This list of 12 fuel sippers includes the Chevrolet Sonic, Cruze, Volt, Malibu, Camaro, Impala and Equinox, plus the Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse and 2012 GMC Terrain.

“GM’s strategic investments in four-cylinder and turbocharged engines, advanced transmissions and vehicle electrification have been very well timed,” said Mark Reuss, president of GM North America. “Three years ago, about 16 percent of the vehicles GM sold achieved at least 30 mpg on the highway. Today, that number is about 40 percent, and we have more new fuel-economy leaders on the way, including the Chevrolet Spark, Cadillac ATS and the Buick Encore.”
