The higher-performance Elise SC reaches 33.2 mpg (8.5 l/100km) in combined cycle and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, according to the latest figures provided by the car manufacturer itself.
Elise S achieves 26.6 mpg (10.6 l/100km) and 48.7 mpg (5.8 l/100km) in city and highway modes respectively, while Elise SC goes as much as 23.9 mpg (11.8 l/100km) and 44.1 mpg (6.4 l/100km).
