Fuel Efficiency

Hyundai has manufactured models of Veloster for 8 years. They average 29.1 combined miles per gallon, with the latest 2020 Veloster below average at 29 combined MPG.

Government regulators estimate the fuel cost of the 2020 Veloster to be $1,350 per year. This estimate is based on 15,000 miles driven, 55% city driving and 45% highway driving, and regular gasoline.

Compared to other vehicles, you spend $500 less over 5 years compared to an average vehicle.

The Veloster consumes about 11 barrels of petroleum per year, according to the standard estimate of 15,000 miles driven. Most of the world's petroleum comes from countries like Russia, Saudi Arabia, the U.S., and Iraq.

The Veloster emits 308 grams of CO2 per mile, or roughly 4,620,000 grams per year. To put this into perspective, a normal tree absorbs about 21,000 grams of CO2 per year, so about 220 trees would offset these emissions. The Veloster does not have start-stop technology.
