Actually lots of them do. The 2009 Fiesta breaks 55 MPG, and it really breaks it to when people drive it with their normal driving habits, unlike the Prius.

As I said earlier, Ford never stopped making small efficient cars, they just haven't been selling them in the US. To their loss. You are totally right, and it's consumers voting with their wallets that finally brought about this change
