The Sedona consumes about 16 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 Sedona emits 436 grams of CO2 per mile, or roughly 6,540,000 grams per year. To put this into perspective, a normal tree absorbs about 21,000 grams of CO2 per year, so about 311 trees would offset these emissions. The Sedona does not have start-stop technology.
