One of the most common reasons for the widespread uptake of electric vehicles is range anxiety. Nowadays, most people would prefer to own a car that can travel long distances and fill up using dinosaur goo within minutes over the battery-powered car with a slower charge and a restricted range. However, the fear of running out of electrons without a nearby plug may soon be obsolete.
Battery technology is rapidly improving, and several electric vehicles on the market in the United States can drive well beyond 200 miles between charges, which is more than enough for most short and medium-length trips. The greatest of the finest can go beyond 300 miles per hour. Here are the seven longest-range electric vehicles available in the United States now.
7 The Chevrolet Bolt EV has a range of 259 miles.
For the 2022 model year, Chevy gave the Bolt EV a drastic makeover, preserving the egg shape of the hatchback but giving it sharper lines all over. The new model has the same range as the previous model but a lower beginning price of $31,995. As a result, it is one of the most affordable electric vehicles available.
6 Volkswagen ID.4 Pro has a range of 260 miles
Volkswagen is attempting to keep up with Tesla, which is by far the most prominent player in the electric vehicle market. Even though its rebranding to “Voltswagen” was a poorly planned April Fools’ Day prank, the firm is progressing toward that goal. The ID.4, the company’s first electric vehicle for the US market, was released in early 2020 for a price of $40,000.
5 Ford Mustang Mach-E has a range of 305 miles
Ford’s first electric vehicle, the Mustang Mach-E, debuted in late 2020. The California Route 1 trim has the longest range, whereas the base Select model has the shortest. Customers can choose from various ranges depending on whether they want an all-wheel-drive or larger battery. To begin, the Mach-E California Route 1 will set you back $50,400.
4 Tesla Model Y Long Range which has a range of 326 Miles
Regarding range, the Model Y is at the base of Tesla’s lineup, but it still outperforms every other electric vehicle on the market. The Long-Range version will set you back $53,990. A more expensive high-performance model with a reduced range is available, as with other Teslas.
3 The Tesla Model 3 Long Range has a range of 353 miles.
Worth $50,000, the Tesla Model 3 offers a range of more than 350 miles. In comparison, the base model offers a 263-mile range for $10,000 less.
2 The Tesla Model X Long Range has a range of 360 miles.
Tesla’s Vehicle X crossover, priced at $95,000, is the company’s second-oldest model, following the Model S. The massive family SUV not only boasts one of the industry’s best ranges, but it also boasts of hitting 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds.
1 The Tesla Model S Long Range has a range of 405 miles.
For years, Tesla’s premium Model S has always been the Electric Vehicle to beat. The sleek sedan has the longest range in the market, and its most powerful model — the Model S Plaid — debuted last month as the world’s fastest production car.
