What is MPGe?

    Speaking of Porsche's poor MPGe, Jalopnik just released an article titled "Here's Why The Porsche Taycan Turbo's EPA Range Is So Bad".  It's nothing more than a sorry bunch of excuses - and ends up blaming the EPA for Porsche's sad ratings, forgetting to mention that Tesla submitted it's cars to the same EPA testing.   I guess ad revenue really can buy some "rags."

    Holy cripes, did anyone see Porsche's MPGe?  It's 68/71 compared to a Model S's 104/104 !!!   And the EPA estimates it'll use 49KWh/100 miles compared to 32KWh/100 miles for a model S.  Porsche is not happy.  I wouldn't be either if I spent 50% more on a car that got 50% less range than a model S.

    Thanks for the link, Harry. I wasn't sure how they calculated it, but I had figured it was a way to make equivalent comparisons using the legacy conception we're all used to.

    I wonder if we'll still refer to "miles per gallon" long after EVs have taken over - after all, we still rate automobiles in "horsepower" :)
