Which electric car has the best range?

Discover our comparison to know which electric car has the best range. From city cars to sedans and SUVs, here is a selection of the most enduring vehicles on the road.

Today, electric cars are more and more numerous in manufacturers’ catalogs. So it’s hard to find it. It is, therefore, essential for a thermal car to determine your needs before starting the purchase process. As stated a little above, one of the main purchase criteria for an electric car is autonomy. Therefore, we have grouped the five cars that today benefit from the most autonomy according to the WLTP certification standard. The autonomy varies according to the conditions of use. Still, the WLTP cycle nevertheless offers a good indicator, better than the old NEDC cycle, in any case, to give you a small overview of the autonomy of electric cars.

If you want all the keys for purchase, here is a selection of the fastest car on a trip. We also have at your disposal a guide to the electric cars that charge the fastest.

Before embarking on the enumeration of the qualities of each vehicle present in our selection.

On the fast charge side, the vehicle can support a 250 kW charge allowing you to recover 80% in 30 minutes. You will be able to recover almost 400 km thanks to this.

The Kia EV6 is a family car par excellence that stands out in particular for its resilience. The 77.4 kWh battery offers the vehicle a WLTP range of 528 kilometers. A figure to be modulated according to the consumption of the vehicle, if it is loaded or not. The car is part of the Ionity charger network, gradually settling in France.

Above all, the car shines with its charging efficiency. In 20 minutes on a fast terminal, the Kia EV6 can recover 309 kilometers of autonomy and 197 kilometers in 10 minutes of charging. On an identical basis, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 can also be a good investment under the 47,000 mark. The absence of a trip planner can be a brake on the purchase since you will not be able to anticipate the trips.

For the Kia EV6, the price starts from 47,990 euros, but we recommend the Air Design model billed at 51,790 euros if you want to take advantage of driving aids.

The Audi manufacturer is a major name in the automotive market. With the e-Tron GT Quattro, he made a remarkable entry into the electric market. The model is one of the most powerful, with a development of 476 horsepower. The WLTP autonomy is announced at 488 kilometers modulo once again your driving. Of course, all the luxury equipment is in place on this car.

The e-Tron GT Quattro performs particularly well when it comes to charging. It takes 22 minutes of charging to go from 5 to 80% battery and benefits from a range of 273 kilometers. Also, note that a vehicle like the Porsche Taycan uses the same base as the Audi if you want to drive an even more prestigious brand.

The big downside is its prohibitive price. The e-Tron starts from 105,100 euros, with a low ecological bonus.

  • Dimensions (L x l x h) : 4,98 m x 1,96 m x 1,41 m

If you’re looking for a Tesla alternative, the BMW i4 is an attractive car in terms of durability. The autonomy shown on paper is 590 km. In 20 minutes, it is possible to restore 235 km of autonomy, but that’s it. The 10 to 80% level is reached in 1h15 because there is no fast charging on the vehicle.

Be careful; however, the first version with the best autonomy is an entry-level version that is more accessible in terms of price. It is displayed at 71,560 euros, but in return, it only has fairly weak equipment for driving assistance. Likewise, the BMW charger network is still a bit spartan. However, driving is pleasant daily, especially for long journeys.

Our full BMW i4 test is available to read. If the SUV is efficient in terms of autonomy, it remains behind the other vehicles in our selection.

The Skoda Enyaq IV, in its 80 finish, is undoubtedly the most interesting in endurance. The cycle announced in WLTP is 544 kilometers while developing a power of 204 horsepower. The car is especially interesting thanks to its controlled consumption which could prove useful for long journeys. It is especially attractive compared to its technical cousin: the Volkswagen ID4.

On the driving part, the Skoda is as comfortable in the city as in the countryside. Indeed, like a real family vehicle, it is interesting, above all, the habitability. It leaves room for a family with guaranteed comfort for each member.

On the price side, the version that interests us is the Enyaq is the one entitled 80. This is offered from 51,080 dollars giving you an ecological bonus of 2000 dollars—our test of the Skoda Enyaq IV to find out more.

Many city cars and sedans are at the heart of our selection. One of the best electric city cars is the Renault Zoé. It has the advantage of being accessible but, above all, enduring. It is also the city car with the most autonomy since it is measured at 395 kilometers. A fairly large figure to consider with a 50 kW fast charge. It will take you 1h10 to be at 100%.

In terms of consumption, the Renault Zoé comes out on top. Indeed, during our test, we found 13.8 kW/100 kilometers without Eco mode. The driving pleasures are of good level with a dynamic behavior on the road. If the city is its favorite territory, it offers good performances outside.

Above all, the car is attractive in terms of its price. The Zoé starts from 33,700 euros and goes up to 36,900 without the ecological bonus of 6,000 euros. It is, therefore, the cheapest car in our selection. Our full test of the Renault Zoé is available for reading.
