2016 Toyota Prius: First Fuel Economy Update

by James Riswick, New & Used Car Editor on June 6, 2016

2016 Toyota Prius

Good thing: our long-term 2016 Toyota Prius goes a long time between fill ups. Bad thing: It therefore takes a long time to accumulate enough fill ups to report on its fuel economy.

Nevertheless, after two months and more than 2,000 miles, we can report that our long-term Prius is returning 48.6 mpg. That contrasts to its EPA-combined figure of 52 mpg, but we've also seen fill-ups good for 54.3 mpg and 52 mpg without any special effort on our part.

More time, more miles and more fill-ups are still needed to provide a better picture of just how efficient the new Prius can be.

Lifetime Average: 48.6 mpg
Best Fill: 54.3 mpg
Worst Fill: 42.3 mpg
Best Range: 380.4
Total Miles: 2279
