Since electric vehicles were introduced, despite all the benefits they offered from causing less air pollution to more savings in the long term, they have not been much popular. There seemed to be two main problems hindering the prevalence of using EVs, one of which being the high cost of such cars due mainly to their limited production. The other problem with EVs was that they could not go as far as internal combustion-engined cars could. Nowadays, there are far more advantages and disadvantages of EVs in question. However, the price and how far these cars could travel on one charge are now no problem at all.
With the mass-market of EVs, mileage is no barrier to buyers. Now they can go for hundreds of miles, depending on make and model. Moreover, recharging is not that time-consuming with rapid charge option available to meet buyers’ needs. The following is a list of 10 electric vehicles with the longest range on a single charge.
Tesla Roadster (600 Miles)
Not only it offers the longest range, but it is claimed to be one of the fastest electric cars speeding up to 250 mph. Elon Musk claimed it as the quickest EV back in 2017, before Rimac hit the market. However, it does provide the most extended range on one charge only, taking 32 hours to full-charge using home electricity supply or 44 minutes to rapid charge.
Moreover, Tesla’s famous Superpower stations, now readily available on the roads, can provide users with even more than 600 miles to go. The second-generation Tesla Roadster is planned to show up in 2021, a perfect successor that reminds us of the 2008 Roadster.
Rimac C Two (402 Miles)
Rimac’s latest production seems to be a super modern car with futuristic features. This full-electric car is fast, super attractive, comfortable, and smart all at the same time. Rimac’s powerful hypercar makes a sprint of 0-62 mph in only 1.85 seconds, beating Tesla’s Roadster.
The battery can be recharged up to 80% in less than half an hour. What completely sets C two apart is its pair of two-speed gearboxes at the rear, preventing drop-offs at high speeds and bringing it to a top speed of 258 mph.
Tesla Model S Long Range (400 Miles)
By the introduction of Model S in 2012, Tesla astonished the world. The Model S was considered as the first electric vehicle to provide an extended range of mileage on one charge, leading to its all-time fame as an icon.
With its high mileage and technology, the Tesla Model S challenged every other maker in the industry. The battery takes 15 hours to recharge fully, if at home, and around 38 minutes to rapid-charge. If 400 miles does for you, you can go for a Model S at a lower price than Roadster.
Tesla Model 3 Long Range (348 Miles)
Tesla’s Model 3 offers a shorter range comparing to Model S and Roadster. Still, then it takes a shorter time to recharge and is much less expensive. The series includes three variants making different options available to consumers, with the Long Range being the one with the highest mileage.
This EV is equipped with a dual-motor AWD. The battery takes 11 hours 45 minutes for at-home charging and only 22 minutes for fast-charge. This quick sedan is the perfect choice for Tesla lovers who can’t afford to buy a Roadster or Model S.
