I think because it's in metric kilometers, which gives smaller values making everything seem more efficient.

Your chart doesn't seem to have any weight of vehicle. If I run with your Cd and area, I see this.
550 KG (1200 lb) is a very light car.

Speaking about very light cars, check out the ridiculously efficient wh/m rating vs speed graph for the Edison2. 200 miles range at 60mph with 16kwh.
Edison2 - Very Light Blog - And The Consequences Are

Use the Calculator at the top of the forum. Use the KWH needed at speed / the speed to get the wh/km or mi rating.
