With Electric Vehicles beginning to gain popularity, I have built this site for a quick reference guide as to the best EV for range. You can also quickly check details such as price and battery size here.
Range is one of the most crucial issues when buying an EV as until recently it has been a serious limiting factor. With the advent of the Nissan Leaf, we saw EVs begin to overcome the range issue and nowadays there are EVs coming onto the market at a reasonable price with ranges well over 200 miles. For most people this is sufficient for day to day usage.
I will be updating this site and adding new vehicles as and when the become available. The ranges quoted are both the manufacturers figures and those achieved in "real world" conditions.
|Make/Model||Battery||Range||Real Range||OTR Price|
|Hyundai Kona||64 Kwh||339||271||£29,295|
|Renault Zoe R110||40 Kwh||250||204||£23,995|
|Tesla Model X||351||281||£91,395|
|Nissan Leaf||40 Kwh||235||188||£22,795|
|Renault Zoe Q90||230||184||£24,495|
|Hyundai Kona||39 Kwh||214||171||£24,995|
|Hyundai Ioniq||28 Kwh||174||140||£25,295|
|Smart EQ fourtwo||99||79||£16,295|
Whilst every care is taken to ensure the details above are correct, I can accept no liability for any errors or omissions.
The new Hyundai Kona has set a new benchmark for range and affordibality, with close to 300 miles in real world conditions from a 65 Kwh battery and under £30k on the road. Unfortunately supplies of the car are patchy, I tried to get a quote on one for a lease deal and was told they couldn't take any orders and it's not likely to be available for 10 months!
