Bugatti Chiron’s Official Fuel Economy Figures Are Just Hilarious

Bugatti has announced fuel economy figures for the mighty Chiron, confirming that it is slightly more efficient than the original Veyron 16.4.

Over the EPA’s combined cycle, the 1500 hp Chiron returns 11 mpg, not bad when you consider that the 987 hp Veyron drank a gallon of fuel every 10 miles. This slight improvement in fuel efficiency also shows that despite the same basic, quad-turbo, 8.0-liter W16 engine being used by both the Veyron and Chiron, Bugatti engineers have refined it over the past decade.

On the highway, the Chiron is slightly worse than 2011-2015 Veyron and returns 14 mpg compared to the Veyron’s 15 mpg. City driving then rests at 9 mpg for the new hypercar, a 1 mpg improvement over its predecessor.

Inevitably, these figures would have been recorded under absolutely perfect conditions and are probably near-impossible to replicate in the real world, particularly when you have 1500 hp on tap under your right foot. If you try to drive efficiently in a Chiron, you shouldn’t own one.



    people will still buy it either

    Dont think by driving cost but by time spent refueling instead of driving this beauty !

  • Blade t

    If you can afford a chiron ,fuel efficiency is your last concern….

    • Ermal Morina

      No shit

      • Blade t

        No need for the cursing….

            Actually the word was originally scitte and was in normal use. We have just decided we are prim and proper and do not want to use good English words. So no feces.

    Doubt rich people who spend their money on these types of cars actually care about gas millage and prices..

    • I’mCallingYouOut

      No. “the average owner has a total of 84 cars, three private jets, and a yacht”

      • I’mCallingYouOut

        ..and that’s for the Veyron.

  • Howstar

    Well that’s it i’m cancelling my order straight away

    • John

      trade you a Prius for it.

  • ediotsavant

    The rich will have the butlers searching in sofas for loose hundred dollar bills to pay the gas.

  • S3XY

    Imagine if we didn’t have Tesla and were stuck with all these bum gas guzzling automakers.

      • Then your just an idiot then aren’t you!!!!!!!

      While this is an obvious troll attempt, current ICE vehicles are quickly becoming extremely efficient. It is hilarious when Tesla groupies ignore the environmental impact of mining/extracting lithium and other rare metals such as those in magnets. These metals are only 0.2% of what is pulled from the ground at most sites. The other 98.8%, containing several toxic chemicals such as ammonium sulfate, is dumped back into the environment. Many of these sites/mines are in China and use huge amounts of dirty energy. The entire process is not very “green”. Obviously, there are oil based plastics used in factories and the cars themselves.

      Electrification is definitely a huge piece of the future. However, lithium based batteries simply do not have storage capacity that will be needed. We need major advances in battery technology for electric cars to become dominant. Hybridization will be become the standard and exist well into the future. Electric cars are great and I would love to own a Model S P100D but we simply are nowhere near the point of mass adoption of electric vehicles.

    Don’t forget, most of these probably get driven in the 10s of miles per year – their owners might be out something like two tanks of gas every 12 months.

  • Jason R.

    Just remember this car is not a daily driver so most wouldn’t care!

    If you;re considering a Bugatti, you will not be concerned with such dubious matters. Now, if you’re considering a Bugatti and concerned with fuel economy, here’s a tip, you’re too poor for that sh**, so get yourself a commoner’s type of vehicle.

  • Przemix

    Its 23,5l/100km I did the math for you

  • Don’t fill the tank. Pour fuel over p.o.s. car and light a match. The more of these and the Veyron burn, the better

    • Zed68

      Yeah, sure.

    • anonymous

      Because, yeah, sure.

  • TheHake

    Nothing quite like burning dead dinosaurs!!!

  • Six_Tymes

    I expected less.

    • Bash

      And returns a 6 mpg.. :D:D:D

  • ctk4949

    Please no way that car gets 11 combined. Mine suppose to get 22 combined and i get more like 17, lol

  • Bash

    Lets be honest,, does anybody actually expects better figures?!!

  • Richmond2000

    people bought HUMMER H2’s that WERE used for cummuter cars and GOT less then 10 MPG so I say this is quite good

    “Bugatti Chiron’s Official Fuel Economy Figures Are Just Hilarious.” I don’t get it. What is so hilarious about them? Low, yes. Make me Laugh? No.
