Top 10 Longest Electric Car Ranges

Posted on

Electric cars now suit more drivers than ever, but which models have the longest ranges of all? These are the 10 best, all of which can do more than 300 miles on a charge…

Whether you’re tired of filling up at the fuel pumps or just want to lower your running costs, there’s never been a better time to choose an electric car.

Just a few years ago, electric vehicles (EVs) were seen as expensive and had short ranges. These days, though, they come in all shapes and sizes, are more affordable than ever, and many models can comfortably cover long journeys on a single battery charge.

Here we list the top 10 electric cars with the longest official ranges, and they can all cover 300 miles or more on a single charge.

10. Tesla Model Y

10. Tesla Model Y

The Model Y is effectively a Tesla Model 3 on stilts, and is a great option for family buyers who want a bit more space than you get in a saloon. It gives you up to 316 miles of range between charges, and you’ll get access to Tesla’s superb charging network. Acceleration is breathtaking, but you’ll have to live with a harsh ride and excessive road noise.

Pros

  • Rapid acceleration
  • Great range between charges
  • Tesla’s charging infrastructure

Cons

  • Rivals offer a smoother ride
  • Fairly noisy for an EV
  • A Model 3 is cheaper and better to drive

9. Kia EV6

An electric SUV may not be the obvious choice if you want a car with handling poise, but the EV6 gets close, gripping well and inspiring confidence. It’ll do up to 328 miles on a charge, and if you can find a 250kWh charging point it can get to 80% of battery capacity in 18 minutes. The wealth of interior space makes it a compelling buy, and Kia finished ninth in the 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey.

8. Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron

The Q4 Sportback e-tron offers luxury appeal and fashionable coupé looks for a reasonable price. The 331-mile range in 40 specification means you can cover huge distances without stopping, and you get a commanding driving position plus a boot that’s almost as big as in the Audi Q5. Just be aware that performance is a bit lax and visibility compares poorly with the Tesla Model 3 and other rivals.

Pros

  • Comfortable ride
  • Classy and spacious interior
