I just came upon a comparison of basically what is a Volkswagen called Skoda Octivia and the third-generation Toyota Prius against an LPG driven Chevrolet Aveo. It was made by the magazine car and driver in Spain. Now unfortunately, I do not speak Spanish so I was not sure what they were talking about. But at the end of the video which is posted on YouTube they did a comparison of fuel economy as well as the range of the cars. I thought the results were quite surprising, with The Prius getting the worst fuel economy and by far the shortest range. The fuel economy was 6.1 L per hundred kilometers and stopping at 750 km due to lack of fuel, versus 5.3 L per hundred kilometers for the Skoda TDI being able to travel 1040 km before running out of fuel and an even better fuel economy for the Chevrolet Aveo of 5.1 L per hundred kilometers with a range of 1060 km. When you consider that LPG is almost half the price of gasoline or diesel in Europe and it is actually a very clean fuel to burn it's quite surprising that the Chevrolet did that well. At least in Canada propane is not much cheaper than gasoline. With somebody who understands a little bit of Spanish could tell me what the review was all about. While I do understand that this was not the optimal conditions since it involved traveling mostly on the highway where the hybrid does not do as well, I'm still surprised it did so much worse than the turbodiesel. It's ironic that the test the hybrids on the highway in Europe were by far the vast majority of drivers in Europe to 90% city driving. Nevertheless it's an interesting video in an interesting result. I have posted a link to the video below.
