That's with the new, post-2007 EPA fuel economy methods. Prius clocks in at 48mpg, the Honda Civic Hybrid at 40mpg, and nothing else comes even remotely close.

THe numbers from Consumer Reports are similar, showing 44mpg for the Prius, 37mpg for the HCH, then a few small cars (along with the Camry Hybrid) all at 34mpg:

LOL and here we are in Japan and I so do not see many Prius or Honda hybrid or any Hybrid cars here. Like in the States they are few and far between. The thing they do for fule economy is have the speed limit set at 80 kpm on the freeways. Which everyone ignores and most trucks do 90 to 100 kpm and cars usually go 100 to 130.....LOL
