My answer is E

"Indicates that" is idiomatic....E is also parallel - "have reduced" vs. (have) made

I am discussing only, C, D and E.
C. that there are few people who have significantly reduced the amount of driving they do, nor having made---have made/ having made is un//.
D. that few people have significantly reduced the amount of driving they do and are not making--- have reduced and are not making is un//. In addition, the choice changes the meaning in that few people (not many people - a negative) when coupled with are not making (another negative) turns the meaning to positive, implying that many people are making fuel efficiency ----- ----- etc.
E. that few people have significantly (reduced the amount of driving they do) or (made). This parsing is perfectly //. Hence the right choice

Notice how similiar D and E are? That is because the writer of this question knows that most test takers can eliminate A and B due to the incorrect idiomatic construction: "indicates that~"

(E) is less wordy and the present perfect tense stays parallel.

we need to use indicates that..... no doubt,

but although introduces contradicting clause. I think D contradics with the first clause. so I pick D)

I would eliminate all other choices except D and E.

Then it becomes difficult, I rely on my instincts and choose E.

I don't have an OA for this!

the idiomatic structure is " indicates that ...."
Although "few" slightly has negative meaning but we can't use "nor" here
-----> D and E stand.
yes, E is more concise.

E it is.
