Nice charts. Would help if they also listed the mpg that the car got when running on gas or at least the published mpge. For those who need the extra range but still want to be efficient when we do, that would be a very useful comparison.

I find it interesting the Ionic seems more efficient than the Prime, basically the same sized small battery but the Ionic gets 4 more miles of EV range, I wonder if the same follows for the ICE, that is the Ionic gets better MPG? I believe the Prime gets around 50 on the hwy, the Prime also has the very efficient heat pump heater(but I've read not a PTC or resistive heater) wonder what the Ionic has for heat......
