In its second year running, the first and only automotive awards in Malaysia to recognize fuel efficient vehicles, the Asian Auto-Mudah.my Fuel Efficiency Awards 2009 announced its results at a cozy awards ceremony that took place last Friday.

Speaking at the ceremony, Asian Auto Editor, Daniel Fernandez said, “This annual fuel efficiency awards aims to motivate car manufacturers to introduce more fuel-efficient vehicles such as small capacity diesels, invest in new technologies and develop or introduce alternative fuel cars into the Malaysia market. And, the increase in participation from car manufacturers this year is a testament to the importance of meeting the demands of discerning consumers in Malaysia. The Asian Auto – Mudah.my Fuel Efficiency Awards 2009 is one of our ways to acknowledge the manufacturers who have strived to provide the most savvy automotive selections in our market.”
