Porsche ranked top for real-world fuel economy

By / 6 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

Consultancy company Emissions Analytics ranked 26 manufacturers based on the variance between real-world fuel economy and the official figures generated under the New European Driving Cycle.

This showed that real-world fuel average economy was spread between 31mpg and 54mpg, with an average of 44mpg, against an official average of 57mpg. The company said that this gap had grown five percentage points since they began testing in October 2011, to an average 22% variance.

Porsche was shown to have the lowest variance between official figures and real-world fuel economy, at 7%, but the manufacturer’s high-performance model range meant overall fuel economy was second lowest overall.

None of the other manufactuers were named, but Emissions Analytics said three of those who came closest to official figures had a range comprising high-performance models.

Among the 20 manufacturers with a range spread across a variety of sectors, the variance against official figures ranged from 13 to 24%, the company added.
