I was impressed reading 400 miles per gallon. Then I read electric motors and batteries and knew this is more funny math. Then there the part that says an 100 electric miles per hour = 101 gas miles or 403.5 passenger miles. No wonder the country is broke and can't balance a budget. We have inflated numbers so that no one can use the information. Wait, my cell phone just went 150 mph and got 1000 miles to a gallon.

The claim is 403.5 passenger miles per gallon.
Or it carried 2 passengers 201.8 miles in the equivalent of one gallon of gas energy converted to battery power.
You can thus say a SUV that gets 10 MPG with 6 passenger inside actually gets 60 passenger miles per gallon.
