The new ratings are out and I just looked it up on the EPA site. For the 2007 Prius using the new method, it's estimated at 48 MPG city, 45 MPG highway. 46 MPG overall. That seems pretty much in line with what people are reporting. Some do better, some do worse. Seems fair to me.
For those who speak metric it's 4.9 l/100 km city, 5.23 l/100 km highway, and 5.1 l/100 km overall. I'm being a little optimistic with the decimal places, but whatever.
I presume we'll see the new numbers on the window stickers on the 2008 models. Of course, if the 2008 is a new model, the numbers would be different.
