Car charging

Electric vehicles (EVs) are easier than ever to find on our streets, with an ever-increasing uptake that is leading today’s 1.7m global sales to 54m sales by 2040. This is not a coincidence. Among others, one of the main factors boosting the growth is the progressive improvement in the electric vehicle driving range.

It is no secret that driving range is one of the most decisive elements when it comes to choosing a new electric vehicle. With that in mind, we invite you to explore the top 20 longest range EVs on the market!

What is the electric vehicle driving range?

Electric vehicle driving range is the maximum distance one can drive on a single battery charge.

How much electric vehicle driving range do you need?

As a matter of fact, an average electric vehicle with a single charge has a range of 160-200 km. This should be enough for short trips and regular daily commutes. 

The vast majority of EVs can therefore cover long distance driving and support the majority of Europeans during their daily commutes (it is estimated to be about 29 km per day). 

Factors affecting electric vehicle driving range

When it comes to electric car driving range, there is a number of factors that have a direct effect on it. More specifically:

  • The way and how fast you drive your car.
  • Temperature and weather conditions.
  • Long mountain climbs.
  • Extra weight in the car. 
  • Usage of car’s features ( AC, Electric seats, etc).
  • Tire width and pressure. 
  • The overall condition of the car and battery.
  • Electric motors quality.

Keep in mind then that the longest indicated range can differ from an actual driving range. For the most you should watch your driving style.

So, let me ask you: 

What kind of driver are you? Are you a gentle driver or do you always put your pedal to the metal? The way you drive directly impacts your car’s driving range.

If you are scared of running out of battery, make sure to get one of the longest range EVs or drive more effectively to get the most out of your electric vehicle. Even if today’s average range might seem to be sufficient, looking for maximum efficiency always is a good idea. 

Therefore, most of the buyers want to purchase an EV featuring a range that exceeds their estimated needs.

Electric vehicle maximum range is getting better

Of course, automakers are always looking for new improvements, and are in race to meet the ever-increasing demand for better performances and technologies. All these improvements are also geared towards improving the electric car driving range.

Electric vehicles nowadays feature:

  • Better and bigger batteries
  • More efficient motors 
  • Regenerating braking systems
  • Improved aerodynamics 
  • More economical appliances

Curious to know which carmakers perform the best when it comes to electric car range? Then keep on reading and check our list of the 20 longest range electric cars!

To make things even easier for you, we have divided our list on three categories according to your budget needs:

Which electric vehicle has the longest range up to date?

Please note: EVs have been ranked according to  EVDB data. As for any other vehicle, it is not possible to always drive in the best conditions. Real-life situations inevitably affect the estimated number of km.
