How to compare the fuel efficiency of electric cars and plug-in hybrid cars while driving in electric only mode to gasoline and Diesel cars? This calculator does the conversion. (metric version)
The comparison is based on the ability of CCPP (Combined Cycle Power Plants) to convert gasoline or Diesel with 58% efficicncy to electric power. New planned CCPPs will even surpass 60%. 15 kWh /100km is a typical value for a medium siezd plug-in hybrid car.
