Ford Explains ‘MPGe’ in Strategic Video


Green Car Reports - October 12, 2012

The official label on electric vehicles gives a measurement of fuel economy listed as MPGe. Dealers and consumers should be aware of the new values.

So what does MPGe actually mean?

Effectively, MPGe is a measure that lets consumers compare the familiar measure of fuel economy in gasoline and diesel cars – miles per gallon – with the very different energy use of electric cars.

Normally measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh), it isn’t always easy to see how much of a benefit you might be getting by running an electric car.
