How many KMs in total are you getting?

Looking to get a 2019 SX and I'm wondering how many total KMs are you getting in your car.

It depends on if you're looking at a hybrid or plug-in hybrid. With the standard hybrid, most people are getting between 50-60 MPG (sorry, you'll have to convert to km/l ) With the plug-in, it really depends on how often you can travel just in EV mode. My last tank was 226 MPG over 1300 miles, and my current tank is showing 385 MPG after about 450 miles driven. But I can do a major percentage of my driving in EV mode. If I drain the battery it then acts like the typical hybrid, showing around 60 MPG. If you do a high percentage of city driving, your mileage will be better with either version. I can leave work with 15 miles EV range showing, and 16 miles later at home I still show 5 miles remaining. That's due to all the regen I get from a non-freeway route.

There isn't a really good answer to that question sadly. It is sort of like asking how long is a piece of string?

Without knowing where you are, it's a bit more harder to say. If you have 4 seasons (ie a cold winter) then the fuel economy will take a dramatic hit over those months as the car does run better when it is warm and the engine needs to run to produce heat for your cabin. As well, road conditions play a big part. Driving on a highway at high speed doesn't get as good a fuel economy as driving around at 75-80kph. Rush hour trafic actually gets pretty good fuel economy as you can do quite a bit of it in EV mode and the engine doesn't need to be on all that much. Then you get into cargo weight. If you load the Niro with 4 larger adults with golf bags, beer and a cooler, then you will get worse fuel economy that a single driver alone.

Those said, in the winter time I am getting around 6.5 - 5.7 L/100km. Or as it works out about 690-790km per tank. This is mostly driving short distances around town (average 15-30km trip in city) with a few longer (45-60km trip at 60% city 40% highway).

But in the summer things are very much different. As the temp warms up the fuel economy shoots up dramatically. I have been getting around the 4.6 - 4.3 L/100km for mostly around town type of driving. Effectively the same as my winter drives but in the summer weather. Now I have had some good runs that were more back road highways so I was driving in the prefered 75-85kph range, and got a fantastic 4.0 - 3.6 L/100km, so the vehicle can get some really great efficiancy. That was more in the 20% city 80% highway (but at the sweet spot speed).

@B05 , Welcome to the forum, like said @ATC and @Roadkill401 , ther are a lot of information missing in your request.

- 2019 SX; are you looking for a hybrid HEV, a plug-in PHEV, or an 100% full electric EV model ?
- KM, do you live in Canada or a metric country in Europe ?

For a quick anwser, in a HEV, @Roadkill401 gived you a good summary of the L/100km that the Niro can do on a full tank, and it's the same reality when i had mine last year.

Now, for the PHEV, as we speak (july 17), i am at my 6th week into my last full tank, and i am at ~ 1400km and still have a bit more than Ĺ a tank left. It really depends on how you plug it each day.
For the full 100% electric EV, in this summer, users can do more than 450km on a full charge. Some went up too 500km, but very rare. the rate is ~ 12 to 16 kwh/100km.
