As the number of electric cars increases rapidly, it is incumbent upon interested individuals to find out which are the best of them in terms of range. This article is aimed at helping out such people by delving into the details of such electric cars. Let’s see the top EVs in the ascending order of their ranges.
Mercedes EQS 450+
The Mercedes EQS is a luxury vehicle from the German automaker. Some of the key attributes of the vehicle include:
– Range: 534 km;
– Battery Size: 107.8 kWh;
– Starting Price: €92,700.
It is a refined version of the S class with a shorter hood and a sloping C pillar. The overall shape of the vehicle is debatable but it is highly aerodynamic which aids the vehicle in getting such an impressive range.
Tesla Model 3 Long Range
The Model 3 is the most sold EV globally. The long-range variant of the vehicle is particularly impressive. The specifications are:
– Range: 576 km;
– Battery Size: 82 kWh;
– Starting Price: €49,400.
What is even more impressive is that the Model 3 Long Range can go so far even with a battery that is much smaller than the Mercedes EQS.
The relatively reasonable starting price also makes it one of the most favorite vehicles with an impressive range.
Tesla Model S Long Range
The Model S is a luxury vehicle and still, it delivers a better range than the smaller Model 3.
The key attributes of the Tesla Model S Long Range include:
– Range: 652 km;
– Battery Size: 100 kWh;
– Starting Price: €90,640.
As you can see, the Tesla Model S Long Range not only costs lesser than the Mercedes EQS but can also go further.
The fact that this vehicle gets such an impressive range with a battery that is relatively smaller than its Mercedes rival shows Tesla’s dominance in the field.
Rivian R1T Max Pack
Rivian is a relatively new name in the automotive world. However, the startup has done considerably well in recent years.
The Rivian R1T Max Pack presently has one of the best ranges in the world. The fact that it is a truck makes the Rivian R1T even more compelling.
The off-roading capabilities of the truck have been tested by industry experts who seem fairly convinced by it.
Here are some of the features of the Rivian R1T Max Pack:
– Range: 650+ km;
– Battery Size: 180 kWh;
– Starting Price: €75,700.
The battery pack of the R1T is considerably larger in capacity than any other vehicle on this list.
Being a truck, the truck must have a larger battery as the aerodynamics of the vehicle give the overall efficiency a major hit.
The starting price of the Rivian R1T is also quite reasonable and seems great bang for the buck.
Lucid Air Dream Edition R
The EV that is currently sitting at the top of the ladder in terms of range is the Lucid Air Dream Edition R.
Lucid, like Tesla, is California based and is a relatively new player in the segment.
The Lucid Air is a luxury vehicle that competes against the big boys like Mercedes EQS & Tesla Model S in terms of luxury.
The specifications of the vehicle are:
– Range: 836 km;
– Battery Size: 118 kWh;
– Starting Price: €153,200.
The Lucid Air Dream R is an extremely expensive vehicle that costs almost 1.5 times the price of the Tesla Model S Long Range.
These are the top 5 electric vehicles with the longest ranges, for now. As more and more companies are coming up with efficient models, the list might soon need revisions.
