MPG - for those of you who have the Hybrid

Post by Blue407 » Wed Jan 18, 2017 11:12 am

I'm very interested to hear what MPG you are achieving with your new Hybrid?

I believe its supposed to be very similar to the Prius, which online is showing an average of 59MPG

I need to change my Company car soon, currently have a Nissan Juke 1.5 diesel which gets me anything from 50-63 MPG (I don't like boring looking cars)
I'm also considering a BMW i3 (range extended version), Outlander PHEV and Jeep Renegade (Diesel)

UK owners have only been able to collect them since the official launch 9 days ago. Probably a bit soon to expect any meaningful data.
All it takes is a glance to make you look twice.......C-HR Excel Hybrid in black for family, Toyota IQ for town, and for fun a supercharged Toyota GT86.

According to reviews the CHR is not as fuel efficient as a Prius. It is not as aerodynamic, and I believe it weighs more too. It is also slower than a Prius, not as well equipped, and considerably more expensive. However it is better looking!!

Re: the other 3 cars you are looking at:- The BMW i3 Range Extender is rather noisy, it's expensive, and not very practical. The Outlander PHEV is also expensive, and the overall quality didn't feel that good to me. I wouldn't touch a Jeep Renegade with a barge pole as they are expensive to buy, depreciate alarmingly quickly, and I've heard reliability isn't good either. If you are coming out of a Juke, then the CHR is a definitely the best choice.

I didn't start to get "good" mpg out of my Prius until I had done over 2k miles - so I guess it will be some time before we can see any meaningful results.

According to the new Carbuyer review, the Prius drives a lot better as a hybrid than the CHR. I felt that when I drove it too, with the engine cutting in much more readily, and EV mode almost non-existent. I suppose that's not altogether surprising because the Prius was specifically designed as a hybrid, whereas the CHR has just taken the Prius chassis, and plonked an attractive bodyshell and cabin onto it. No doubt Toyota have also changed all the compression ratios of the engine, as well as tinkering with the CVT and hybrid system to adapt them for the CHR. I've seen so many reviews that favour the petrol version, but it doesn't make economic sense for me when the power output is virtually identical, and the hybrid is so much more economical on fuel and road tax!!

I've already passed 2000km and the MPG is almost half the rated one. It is necessary to mention that the temperetaures in my area vary between -20C and -5C with some powerful winds. More data can be found here: http://www.spritmonitor.de/en/detail/802801.html
When I tested the C-HR in December the temperatures were 5+C and the fuel consumption was way better

I still think Hybrid and electric cars are in their infancy. I think my next Company car has to be a compromise, hopefully in 3 years the technology will have improved the range on EV.

I need a car slightly larger than my Juke as my kids are now teenagers.

The Jeep depreciation is not a worry, its a Company lease car, I just like the rugged looks of it. (I don't like boring looking cars)

I've punched some figures into a spreadsheet, once I get some more accurate C-HR MPG figures, I can make a decision.
I should be able to arrange a 1 week demo through work, so that will give me a chance to test it myself.

I'm hoping my next car will save me enough per month to run a VW T5 Camper van :) So I will have that available if I need lots of space.

We are driving our C-HR since late December and our average fuel consumption is around 5.0-5.2 l per 100 km in a mixed city/highway cycle. The climate is set to 19.5 degrees and the airco is occasionally on.

This is not too bad, but still significantly more than the advertised value of 3-4 l per 100 km.
