EnerGuide labels for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles

Below are sample labels for the two types of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) series and blended. For PHEVs, consumption values are provided for electric-only or blended electric and gasoline mode, and for gasoline-only operation. Annual fuel cost and CO2 emissions values reflect a mix of electric mode and gasoline-only operation.

To help you compare vehicles that use electricity, a conversion factor is used to convert electrical energy consumption values, expressed in kilowatt hours per 100 kilometres (kWh/100 km), into gasoline litres equivalent per 100 kilometres (Le/100 km). One litre of gasoline contains the energy equivalent to 8.9 kWh of electricity.

 

Series plug-in hybrid electric vehicleSample EnerGuide label with four key elements numbered; these are described in the text below.
 

1. Fuel consumption (electric-only mode) - a prominent combined fuel consumption rating in Le/100 km and the combined rating expressed in kWh/100 km. The combined rating reflects 55 percent city and 45 percent highway driving.

2. Fuel consumption (gasoline-only operation) - a prominent combined fuel consumption rating in litres per 100 kilometres (L/100 km) and the combined rating expressed in miles per imperial gallon (mi/gal).

3. Recharge time – the estimated time (in hours) to fully recharge the battery at 240 volts.

4. Driving range - the estimated driving distance (in kilometres) on a fully charged battery and a full tank of gasoline.

 

Blended plug-in hybrid electric vehicle Sample EnerGuide label with four key elements numbered; these are described in the text below.
 

1. Fuel consumption (blended electric and gasoline mode) - a prominent combined fuel consumption rating in Le/100 km, composed of the gasoline consumption rating in L/100 km and the electricity consumption rating in kWh/100 km. 

2. Fuel consumption (gasoline-only operation) – a prominent combined fuel consumption rating in L/100 km and the combined rating expressed in miles per imperial gallon (mi/gal).

3. Recharge time – the estimated time (in hours) to fully recharge the battery at 240 volts.

4. Driving Range - the estimated driving distance (in kilometres) on a fully charged battery and a full tank of gasoline.
