The overall fuel economy of the car is quite impressive. Yes, the instantaneous fuel economy when running the petrol engine around town is higher than the advertised economy (the same with most cars). However, if you are running in EV mode, the fuel economy is 0, and if running in auto mode, over a combined petrol and EV run, it quickly averages down to the advertised economy level or lower, depending on your ratio of EV to petrol. My average fuel economy from purchasing the car to the start of Lockdown was around 3 litres per 100 kilometres and it now stands at 1 L/100km, as most of my current running is in EV mode.
