So, you are looking not only an electric car, but also one of the most efficient available? Here we have a perfectly suited chart just for you that shows U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) energy consumption ratings.
Today's edition is kind of temporary/provisional as on one hand we got the latest results for the Tesla Model 3 and upgraded Tesla Model S, while on the other hand still most of the Model S versions and the upgraded Model X are missing on the EPA's website.
* The results were converted from EPA's MPGe (Miles Per Gallon equivalent, assuming 1 gallon of gasoline=33.7 kWh) to Wh per mile of EPA range - Combined, City and Highway. Some data estimated. Some versions of models recieve the same ratings despite beingslightly different.
** All numbers includes charging losses (typically several percent).
The most efficient cars, with the lowest energy consumption (Combined) are:
- Hyundai IONIQ Electric - 248 Wh/mile (154 Wh/km)
- Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus - 253 Wh/mile(157 Wh/km)
- Tesla Model 3 Standard Range - 257 Wh/mile (160 Wh/km)
The Hyundai IONIQ Electric is also king of city driving at 225 Wh/mile (140 Wh/km), although Model 3 is the top choice for the highway - 272 Wh/mile (169 Wh/km)
Without several Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X, the Jaguar I-PACE and Audi e-tron seem alienated on the bottom of the chart. For comparison, the old Model X was rated at 396 Wh/mile (246 Wh/km).
