This is interesting though. My wife drives a 2012 Prius. It usually seems to get about 46-50 MPG per trip when I remember to look at the screen at shutdown. EPA says the it should get MPG of 51 city/48 highway, so we're in the ballpark. EPA says the plug-in version gets 95 MPGe on gas/electric and 50 MPG on gas only, so the plug-in on gas only (which should really still involve the battery just like the non plug-in), is about the same as the non plug-in, and that figure is a little over half of the MPGe figure. Using that as a rough guide, perhaps the 4xe will get around 25-26 MPG after "depleting" the battery.I guess I missed it too = I thought the 20 mpg was in hybrid mode.
So no EPA mileage figure for hybrid? Seems that number would be important-
However, assuming the that EPA ratings are right, then the 20 MPG should be the normal hybrid rating as Shasta-Steve says above, and efficiency of usage is worse than on the Prius in hybrid mode. Not a happy thought, but most of my daily driving should be on all-electric to and from work, so I'll still be way far ahead than if I had an all-gas JL.
