If the purchase of a new hybrid electric vehicle is in your future, you may be interested in the results of DOE’s recent testing. The Advanced Vehicle Testing Activity, managed by DOE's Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory, recently completed 1 million mi of hybrid electric vehicle fleet testing.
The testing includes the miles-per-gallon fuel use, vehicle maintenance and repair data for 18 vehicles, including Honda Civics and Insights, and the Toyota Prius. The cars' fuel efficiencies range from 38 to 46 mpg. Each hybrid vehicle is also dynamometer and track tested.
