One of the biggest worries around electric cars remains range anxiety, with buyers concerned about running out of juice mid-journey.
Early models certainly struggled to offer useful long-distance performance but the latest generation of electric cars have moved the game on substantially. Most models have sufficient range to tackle several days of average commuting on a charge and the longest-legged examples are now offering well over 250 miles at a time.
The future will undoubtedly bring a host of new EVs with ever more impressive range but for now we’ve rounded up the longest-range EVs that you can actually order right now.
9. Ford Mustang Mach-e - 379 miles
The Mach-e is a radical departure from the usual Mustang formula, being a large, battery-powered SUV rather than a V8 sports coupe. But it shares some of the performance ambition of the muscle car, offering between 290 and 346bhp and 0-62mph times as low as 5.1 seconds from the highest-spec car. Best range, however, is achieved by the lower-powered, two-wheel drive version, which manages 379 miles in extended range format and costs from £49,980.
10. Tesla Model S - 379 miles (claimed 412 miles)
Like the Model X, the Tesla Model S has been recently updated and brings some eye-opening claims about range, although official WLTP figures are harder to find. According to Tesla, in long-range dual-motor form, the latest Model S will cover an estimated 412 miles, up from the previous model’s 379-mile WLTP figure, and hit 60mph in 3.1 seconds.
