Longest Range Electric Cars for 2019 (150+ Miles Per Charge)​

Undoubtedly one of the BIGGEST concerns people have about electric cars is whether the range they will have will be enough to drive on a daily basis. Most affordable electric vehicle (especially in the used market), have a minuscule 55-85 miles of electric range. And THAT is if you drive rather carefully...

If money is no issue and you'd like to get "livable" amounts of range, consider looking into the following electric vehicles. The following vehicles are:

  • Capable of being charged in reasonable periods of time (30-75 minutes max).
  • Can cover longer distances, making everyday life with them possible.
  • Are practical in regards to passenger space and trunk space.

DISCLAIMER: It's not fun having just one brand dominate the long range field. As of 2019, there are more and long range electric vehicles making a scene. On this list, you'll see mostly Tesla vehicles getting the longest range. 

#26. Nissan Leaf 40kW

#26. Nissan Leaf 40kW

Coming in at the #26 spot is the new and now very recently "old" Nissan Leaf with a 40kW battery pack. According to Nissan, you can get 151 miles of electric range.

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates. 

#25. Tesla Model X 60D

#25. Tesla Model X 60D

The lowest trim and battery pack on the Model X was the 60D. Tesla claimed you can get 200 miles of electric range. In real world driving those numbers are likely to be a bit lower, especially if you drive more aggressively. 

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates (using a special Tesla connector).

#24. Tesla Model S 60 / 60D

#24. Tesla Model S 60 / 60D

I would say this was the lowest trim Tesla Model S they made, but that would not be true. Their rare 40kW version was one of the first Tesla Mode S models available. This one having a 60kW battery pack could get you 208 miles of electric range

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates (using a special Tesla connector).

#23. Tesla Roadster Version 1

#23. Tesla Roadster Version 1

Tesla's first car and one where people were trying to draw-up some conclusions about the companies future. For those who said the Roadster was just the start, were correct. This Tesla Roadster from 2008 was based on the Lotus Elise body and chassis. It's still fast with 0-60 times in under 4 seconds. From the factory, the car had a battery range of 225 miles. Today of course, the battery degradation has taken a toll on MOST battery packs.

This car is compatible with level 1 and level 2 charging rates. Unlike other Tesla models, this one was made prior to the Supercharging network.

#22. Nissan Leaf E+ 62kW

#22. Nissan Leaf E+ 62kW

The long awaited Nissan Leaf with range that makes people feel MORE relieved is finally here. This is now called the Nissan Leaf "E+". The "+" part probably represents the greater range or the upgrade from the prior 40kW battery pack to the new 62kW pack. This means an improvement of around 75 miles, giving it an estimated 226 mile range.

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates. 

#21. Tesla Model S 70 / 70D

#21. Tesla Model S 70 / 70D

An immediate upgrade from the 60 or 60D was the 70 and 70D. This car was the same in every way except for the bigger battery by 10kW. The range jumped to an impressive 230 miles of electric range.

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates (using a special Tesla connector).

#20. Jaguar i-Pace

#20. Jaguar i-Pace

From a brand that is recognized for making luxury vehicles, Jaguar was a surprising contender when it comes down to electric automobiles. This being their first electric car/crossover... it's exciting to see what else they have stored for us. The i-Pace can get a range of 234 miles

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates. 

#19. Tesla Model X 75D

#19. Tesla Model X 75D

When the Model X came on the market, they were first shown with the 60D as the base model. Fast-forward a year later, they started offering the 75D as the base model battery for the X. This equaled out an estimated 237 miles of electric range.

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates (using a special Tesla connector).

#18. Chevy Bolt EV

#18. Chevy Bolt EV

Chevy was talking about their replacement for the Spark EV for a while (back in 2016). They were hyping it up saying it will be a live-able with range, practicality, and price. Since those statements, the Bolt EV has lived up to the expectations. Not only is it mostly affordable, it seats up to 5 people and gets 238 miles of electric range

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates. 

#17. Kia eNIRO

#17. Kia eNIRO

Up until very recently, Kia had their Soul EV with just over 100 miles of electric range. A great car in many respects, but range anxiety is very real if you plan on going anywhere far. Their e-Niro is the first solution to that problem. In fact, they more than doubled the electric range to a whopping 239 miles (more or less a few miles). This car as of the writing (Feb 20, 2019), had a debatable electric range. If it changes, I'll update this post.

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates. 

#16. Audi E-Tron

#16. Audi E-Tron

Just like the Jaguar i-Pace, Audi is committing their resources to being part of the EV movement that is taking-off like a rocket. Their first full electric vehicle is called the E-Tron. Not to be confused with the Audi A3 E-Tron (plug-in hybrid), this is their compact crossover SUV that can get 248.5 miles of electric range.

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates. 

#15. Tesla Model S 75 / 75D

#15. Tesla Model S 75 / 75D

With the face-lift starting in late 2016, the 75D got improved aerodynamics which helped it achieve 249 miles of range. This applies for both 75 and 75D models.

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates (using a special Tesla connector).

#14. Tesla Model X P90D

#14. Tesla Model X P90D

Just a few years ago, this was the fastest SUV on the planet. Tesla managed to get up to 7 seats, AWD, crazy looking doors, and a 0-60 time in less than 4 seconds. In addition to that, you could also get 250 miles on a single charge

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates (using a special Tesla connector).

#13. Tesla Model S P85D

#13. Tesla Model S P85D

A few years ago this was considered to be the fastest full-size sedan on the planet. A 0-60 in around 3 to 3.1 seconds was unheard of for a vehicle that weighted so much. Despite the weight, the Tesla Model S P85D from the factory was rated to do 253 miles on a single charge.

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates (using a special Tesla connector).

#12. Tesla Model X 90D

#12. Tesla Model X 90D

When the Model X became available, you could either get the 60D, 75D or the 90D with more range. Their strategic move to release all three versions was somewhat strange... but with almost identical range differences. The 90D is the same car as the 75D and 60D with only the battery being larger. You can expect to get 257 miles of range.

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates (using a special Tesla connector).

#11. Hyundai Kona EV

#11. Hyundai Kona EV

Taking on the competition by storm, the Hyundai Kona was created as a compact crossover, but then became available as also a full EV. With little compromise, when it becomes on sale in they USA sometime in the late spring of 2019, it will be a worthy competitor. For less than 45K USD, you can get up to 258 miles of electric range.

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates. 

#10. Tesla Model 3 Mid-Range Trim

#10. Tesla Model 3 Mid-Range Trim

Most likely the cheapest electric car they are selling, the Model 3 Mid-Range trim is rear-wheel drive, has minimal design and excellent aerodynamics. The range is rated for 264 miles for a single charge. Right now, you can get a brand new mid-range Model 3 for just under 45K USD.

#9. Tesla Model S 85 / 85D / P85 / P85+

#9. Tesla Model S 85 / 85D / P85 / P85+

Tesla had their 85kW battery pack for around 3 years. Through that time, they managed to get a very impressive range of 265 miles from the factory. While there are FOUR different trim levels for the 85kW battery pack, range stays the same with only the 0-60 time being just slightly different. 

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates (using a special Tesla connector).

#8. Tesla Model S P90D

#8. Tesla Model S P90D

Coming after the last fastest full-size sedan in the world (P85D), the P90D improved on that just a little bit more. Aside for the increased battery size... the car got a face-lift. Better aerodynamics means quicker 0-60 times and greater range for this specific performance model. From the factory, the car was rated to do 265 miles on a single charge.

#6. Tesla Model S 90D

#6. Tesla Model S 90D

If you want one of the longest range Tesla's without the high 0-60 performance, the latest 90D is the car for you. Unlike the P90D where range suffers due to some of the internal hardware such as bigger motors, the 90D has smaller motors and as a result... you get up to 294 miles per charge.

This car is compatible with level 1, level 2 and level 3 charging rates (using a special Tesla connector).

#5. Tesla Model X 100D

#5. Tesla Model X 100D
