I agree that MPGe is useless. But MPG is based on miles per energy unit (gallon), so I prefer miles or km per kWh which is a valid and recognized energy unit. That " kWh/100 miles" is confusing since very few drive over 100 miles in a trip.Yep. Although honestly, that's EPA's fault for allowing it.
Of course, the EPA numbers are largely crap for BEV range anyway. (And MPGe is downright silly.) BEVs need a whole new and different standardized range test, with upper and lower measurements included. The public needs to be properly informed about the much higher variability in range on BEVs than they're used to with ICE.
