One of the given facts about funeral cars is that they use a lot of gas. There’s really no way of getting around it, you’re not going to get great funeral mileage in a hearse. Adding to the problem is the fact that manufacturers, for the most part, have turned a blind eye to the funeral industry.
One company in Japan, however, may be about to change that. There is a hearse company in Japan who intends to bring Green technology to the funeral car industry. The company, Lequios, is building a hearse based on the Toyota Prius hybrid vehicle as its base. The hearse is designed for families who want to be environmentally conscious, even when it comes to funeral considerations.
It is expected that the fuel economy for this particular funeral car would be as much as 49 miles per gallon.
