The list is in – do you drive a fuel-efficient vehicle?

Natural Resources Canada has released its annual list of the most fuel-efficient new vehicles in the Canadian market. There are ten different categories for the ecoENERGY for Vehicles Awards, which are handed out to the winning manufacturer.

This year, Ford, Toyota and Mazda all had two vehicles make the list with more than half of the winners repeating from the 2009 winner’s list.
