Electric Cars With The Longest Range

authorBy Avinaba

Futuristic Electric Vehicles

While gasoline-powered cars will still be on the road for many years to come, the world is changing, and government emissions standards and environmentally conscious customers are forcing automakers to develop cutting-edge automobiles. The outcome is a fast expanding number of new electric automobiles. And with new technology comes new designs, new features, and new difficulties. 

Therefore, EVs give rapid torque and, in some circumstances, mind-blowing power, despite having slower charge times, a shorter range, and greater curb weights than their gas-powered counterparts. Though our love of the visceral, noise-producing cars of today is not likely to fade, the variety of new EVs brought to market makes it easy to get excited about tomorrow.

The same 135.0-kWh battery that powers the pickup also powers the R1S, which received this 316-mile EPA estimate. It has an advantage over other completely electric SUVs like the Audi e-Tron due to its range and off-road-ready appearance.

Fuel Economy: 73 MPGe

Expert Advice

The new models marketed in America are the only ones included in this list of the longest-range electric vehicles, which are ordered from shortest to longest by EPA combined driving range. We've only included the longest-range model of each electric car on the list to keep things straightforward. The basic price and EPA MPGe rating—the electric vehicle equivalent of miles per gallon—were also listed for each vehicle. Even though we didn't test every model with the longest range using our unique EV highway range testing method, we shared the information when it was feasible. However, the driving range is what determines how useful an EV will be in daily life. There might be an EV on this list that has the ideal range for you.
