Wonder about turning eco conscious when driving – then you already posed a serious question: how far can you go with a full battery charge. If you live in the US, these are the longest-range available cars right now.
Hyundai for example, brings a serious thought consideration to the party – you can compare ranges, but you also need to take into account efficiency when comparing electric vehicles. But in order to have less complicated things, let’s wonder about range alone this time. So, in most cases, the distance traveled on a single charge of the battery is a major factor for EV or plug in hybrid vehicles. If you’re looking for a zero-emission, plug-in vehicle that can be driven away from a showroom in the United States, here’s an important ranking. By the way, when choosing an EV, we recommend to also take a look at other factors – such as a vehicle’s efficiency in miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe, which can roughly be compared to traditional cars) as well as EV-specific kilowatt-per-100-miles.
Naturally, the US stars in terms of range are Tesla’s two Models – S and X. Go for the 2017 Model S P100D with 315 miles in case you want the quickest accelerating four-door sedan in the world or for the Model X P100D with 289 miles if you want a crossover. It’s also notable that the closest competitor – the Chevrolet Bolt with 238 miles and an affordable price tag – only comes in after other Model S and X versions. Other “affordable” models include the e-Golf with 125 miles, the Hyundai Ioniq Electric with 124 miles and a way better MPGe ratio – 136 than any other electric. You can also have the Ford Focus Electric, BMW i3 and Nissan Leaf if you still want to go above 100 miles – 115, 114 and 107 miles, respectively.
