Hyundai IONIQ EV gets EPA’s best-ever fuel economy rating

Sat Nov 26, 2016 7:03 pm

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded Hyundai the top spot due to the IONIQ’s 28kWh battery pack producing a EPA-rated maximum range of 200km. The official economy figures stand at an equivalent of 136mpg (1.72L/100km) on the combined US cycle, 150mpg (1.56L/100km) on the city cycle, and 122mpg (1.92L/100km) on the highway.



The article has a list of cars and their EPA ratings.

I composed the following overview based on the EPA ratings of the current top 3 and some other cars to compare. I transformed the MPGe number into KM Per Liter equivalent (KMPLe), which tells you how many km's you can drive when you have the number of kWh's that is available in 1 liter of gas. I also gave the numbers in km/kWh. All is based on the EPA test cycle consisting of both city and highway driving.

1. Hyundai Ioniq Electric------------------136 MPGe------58 KMPLe------6.53 km/kWh
2. Toyota Prius PHV 2017-----------------133 MPGe------57 KMPLe------6.39 km/kWh
3. BMW i3---------------------------------------124 MPGe------53 KMPLe------5.95 km/kWh

Chevrolet Bolt/Opel Ampera-e----------119 MPGe------51 KMPLe------5.71 km/kWh
Nissan Leaf-------------------------------------112 MPGe------48 KMPLe------5.38 km/kWh
Tesla Model S with 85 kWh battery------89 MPGe------38 KMPLe------4.27 km/kWh

The BMW i3 was nr. 1 since 2014 but recently the new Prius PHV (or Prime) and the Ioniq Electric took over the two highest positions on the list. Note the bad score of the Tesla, which at least partly can be attributed to the weight of its battery.

With 124 MPGe you cannot be nr. 1 anymore, as the top of the list is already 136. Apparently that paper is not up to date.

A lot of articles contradict themselves based on what the data perameters are
