per gallon ratings with hybrid vehicles

There are claims of miles per gallon for plug-in hybrid vehicles For example a semi-famous appearance of CEO on Wait Wait Don’t Me where he gave an amazing summary of the (still-to-be-released) Chevy that it would get 150 miles per In an era where high efficiency are getting 30 miles/gallon that is darn phenomenol. There is an other side to this, in the U.S. car companies stopped miles/gallon efficiency and focusing on and bulk (SUV’s).

In any case I want to look at

First, how do they get such miles per gallon ratings? It from running the PHEV in mode, and then recharging the pack from the grid than running the gas engine. In the hybrid cars, the battery comes only from the gas

In a normal hybrid car the pack have to be very large and in a the battery pack is larger, enough to power it in electric for a significant distance.

Clearly there is less for gasoline in a PHEV which contribute to the higher miles per ratings. Supposedly the majority of has a daily commute less 18 miles per day. Thus a with 40 miles of electric range can adequately handle 18 mile daily drive.

for the majority of people they rarely fire up the gas engine and in electric only mode the of their driving.

100-mpg plug-in hybrids up in US talks about some of the conversions being performed. Vehicle Research Center can a Prius in about four for a cost of $10,400. The AVRC is one of US companies authorized to install ion batteries manufactured by A123 a Massachusetts company. The mechanics the spare tire in the trunk, and it with a 170-pound lithium ion pack. AVRC estimates it could take 140,000 to recover the cost through savings.

But the important thing is that ve demonstrated that the technology is and available right now.

is a principle home of plug-in cars and has published a summary of and other information. We try to be careful to in the fine print that can get over 100 miles/gallon of gasoline, electric costs of about 1-2

To get an idea, I used the Hymotion / plug-in hybrid calculator and got interesting numbers. I should that I claimed 3000 / year driving which may low, but I have arranged my to utilize bicycles and an electric for most of my driving and actually my car very little.
