One of the biggest concerns people have with electric cars is driving range. Many are often asking the same question over and over again.
- Capable of charging in reasonable periods of time (30-75 minutes max).
- Cover 100+ mile road trips with ease and make your life more convenient.
- Practical when it comes to passenger and storage space.
DISCLAIMER: When it comes to electric driving range, Tesla is still in the lead. More than 50% of what you’ll see in this list, is made by Tesla Motors.
Here's the top 31 list:
31. Nissan Leaf 40kW
Coming in at #31 is the Nissan Leaf with a 40kW battery pack. This 2nd generation Leaf has gone through two previous battery sizes, 24kW and 30kW. According to Nissan, you can get 151 miles of electric range with their 40kW pack.
30. Tesla Model X 60D
29. Audi e-Tron
28. Tesla Model S 60/60D
27. Tesla Roadster 1.0
26. Nissan Leaf Plus 62kW
25. Tesla Model S 70 / 70D
24. Jaguar i-Pace
23. Tesla Model X 75D
22. Chevrolet Bolt EV
While Elon beat the competition with his “top-notch” electric cars, Chevrolet was the first to steal market share for their affordable Bolt EV. At around 237 miles on a single charge and costing less than $40K (more like less than $30K for used models), you are getting an EXCELLENT deal. Not only does it drive well but its also practical.
21. Kia Niro EV
20. Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus
19. Tesla Model S 75 / 75D
18. Tesla Model X P90D
17. Tesla Model X Standard Range (2019-Present)
16. Tesla Model S P85D
15. Tesla Model X 90D
14. Hyundai Kona Electric
13. Tesla Model S 85 / 85D / P85 / P85+
12. Tesla Model S P90D
11. Tesla Model S Standard Range (2019-Present)
10. Tesla Model X P100D (2017-2019)
9. Tesla Model S 90D
8. Tesla Model X 100D (2017-2019)
7. Tesla Model X P100D (2019-Present)
6. Tesla Model 3 Long Range/Performance
5. Tesla Model S P100D (2016-2019)
Who said you need a Bugatti to go from 0-60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds… The Tesla Model S P100D can do it in 2.3, for a fraction of the cost. When Tesla introduced their 100kW cars, it was nice to finally see driving range of more than 300 miles.
4. Tesla Model X Long Range (2019-Present)
The newest software and drivetrain upgrade has improved the Tesla Model S 100D’s overall range by roughly 10%. For the first time, the Model X can cover a distance of over 300 miles on a single charge (approximately 325 miles on a single charge with this one).
3. Tesla Model S 100D (2017-2019)
Up until a few year ago, the Model S 100D was the longest range electric car on the market with 335 miles on a single charge. It has now been placed into spot #3 (but still very impressive).
When it comes to the best value for how much range you’ll get, the 100D (2017-2018) is currently at the top.
2. Tesla Model S P100D (2019-Present)
1. Tesla Model S 100D (2019-Present)
The new and improved Tesla Model S 100D is the electric car with the longest range (as of 2019). You can now get a 35 mile improvement on a single charge, taking you from 335 to 402 miles on a single charge.
That's It... For Now, Conclusion?
There you have it, thanks for reading this extensive list. As months and years go by, I’ll be updating this list as more manufacturers are bringing their cars to the market with well over 150 miles of range per charge. Tesla will likely continue to lead the pack with the longest range (at least for now). Stay tuned by bookmarking this page and check back periodically.
