While the highest mileage at one point touched 28 km/l, it averaged at 25.4 km/l overall.
BHPian Traveler recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
Today was the first time I took the e:HEV on the highway.
With an early morning start from Bangalore, we reached Goa at 6.50 pm.
I learnt and loved the adaptive cruise control and the lane assist features on the way. They were really useful and cut the strain to a large extent.
Braking is a very strong suit of this car, all 4 discs really have tremendous and sure-footed braking power.
The suspension is very well-tuned and we did not scrape anywhere including in the Ramnagar – Amod Ghat section which is totally broken.
We were three people with luggage.
The biggest surprise was the mileage.
- From the highest number of 28 km/l to the overall average of 25.4 km/l, it was definitely the most economical car on the Bangalore-Goa highway today.
Here’s what BHPian kush812 had to say on the matter:
I echo your thoughts exactly @Traveler. I too recently did a 750 km pure highway drive and got a terrific mileage of 25.25 km/l via the tankful-to-tankful method and this is with an average speed of about 80 km/h. All this when I wasn’t even trying to get the best efficiency.
Overall in my daily commute which involves 40% highway and 60% city drive, I am easily touching about 26 km/l of mileage which is astonishing. The car serves up power effortlessly up to speeds of 120 km/h and is extremely efficient while doing that. This average is about 2.5 – 3 km/l more than my already efficient Ciaz Diesel Manual.
