Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

Battery capacity Battery capacity

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

A very good car overall

I Love the hybrid aspect of the car. The car is very roomy, comfortable, reliable, and easy to drive. I would recommend this car to anyone.


Had car less than 90 days before it broke!

It’s the second time in less than 90 days it’s fails to start the second time leaving us stranded Christmas Eve. The times if talked to the sales department who I purchased the car from they have been little if any help.


Comfy, beautiful bells and whistles

The car met all of my needs, very comfortable, lots of room, safe, relaxed while driving, Most of all I feel this would be reliable.
