Which Electric Car Has The Longest Range?

Which Electric Car Has The Longest Range?

Are you looking for the longest-range electric cars? Read on to find out which cars are able to go the extra mile.

The electric vehicle industry has changed considerably over the last few years and what was once considered a look into the future is an everyday occurrence on UK roads. However, as more people consider the benefits of switching to an electric vehicle, one of the most commonly asked questions is, ‘which electric car has the longest range?’.

While of course, there is no definitive answer regarding finding an electric car with the longest range as it depends on the make and model. Even though UK drivers in 2022 averaged around 20 miles per day, range anxiety is a real thing, and many of us are not keen on the idea of having to stop en route to recharge during a long journey.

So if you make longer journeys more frequently and aren’t keen on stopping to charge, there are longer-range electric cars that suit your needs. To help you find the right longest-range electric vehicle, we have put together the top ten longest-ranges currently on the market.

  1. Tesla Model S

  2. Mercedes Benz EQS
  3. Polestar 2

  4. Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo

  5. Audi e-tron

  6. Skoda ENYAQ IV

  7. BMW iX

  8. Kia e-Niro 64kWh

  9. Volkswagen ID.3 Tour

  10. BMW i4

  11. Jaguar I-Pace

Tesla Model S - Range: 375 miles

Tesla Model Y Banner

As the pioneers of electric cars, it is hardly surprising that one of the longest-range electric cars comes from Tesla. This go-to electric car manufacturer has traditionally been lightening years ahead with its tech and nationally-available rapid charging points.

The Model S is the longest-running model belonging to Tesla and boasts an impressive range of around 400 miles. While fully charging a Model S at home, it can take a painful 1.5 days. By switching from a 3-pin home charger to Tesla’s wall-mounted charger, you can reduce that time to approximately 14 hours. That’s much better, isn’t it?

But it isn’t just one of the longest-range electric cars out there. It is also pretty impressive when it comes to speed. It can do 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 155mph. You can see why this is considered one of the best high-end electric cars in recent years. But of course, a high-end vehicle comes with a high-end market price, so by leasing a Tesla Model S, you can experience all the benefits without the financial pressures.

Porsche Taycan Banner

If you’re already familiar with the Porsche Taycan, then the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is the wagon version that comes with all-wheel drive as standard and an adjustable air suspension. This EV’s power is supplied by two electric motors and ranges between a 469 and 750 horsepower output.

Both trims, the Taycan Cross Turismo 4 and Taycan Cross Turismo 4S, share an estimated range of 265 miles. While this isn’t the longest-range electric car currently on offer, it is still pretty impressive. And thanks to the use of Porsche’s 800-volt architecture, it offers a fast-charging experience which is sure to make up for the slightly less range it provides.


  • Range: 265 Miles
  • 0-62 MPH: 4.1 Seconds
  • Top Speed: 149 mph
  • CO2: 0 g/km

Audi E-Tron Banner

Are you an Audi fan? If you’re looking for the longest-range electric car while also wanting to stick to a manufacturer that you trust and love, this could be the one. The Audi e-Tron is a strong contender for the electric car with the longest range.

The Audi e-Tron provides everything you’d expect from the industry leader but in a fuel-free alternative. This model is available as either an SUV or Sportback and, similarly to the previous EV, has two electric motors. However, unlike the Porsche Taycan, it has a maximum horsepower of 402 when both motors are working in conjunction. The Audi e-Tron also offers an impressive 60mph in just five seconds!


  • Range: 252 Miles
  • 0-62 MPH: 4.5 Seconds
  • Top Speed: 130.5mph
  • CO2: 0 g/km

As Skoda’s first-ever fully electric SUV, the Skoda ENYAQ IV has become an increasingly popular option since it was released last year. It is available in a choice of battery sizes: 62kWh or 82kWh, and there is an additional range of customisable add-ons. These add-ons include 100,000 miles and 5 years of extended warranty.

The rapid charging capabilities are pretty impressive as well. While a full charge at home can take just under 14 hours, the rapid charge offers a 10-80% charge in just 38 minutes! While the manufacturer states the official range is 316 miles, real-world testing suggests approximately 275 miles. This is pretty impressive when you consider its cost of £33,450.

The newest version of this fully-electric ID.3 comes with an optional heat pump which provides an energy-efficient way to heat the interior of the vehicle. This is especially beneficial as it requires less power from the battery, so offers greater range in winter.

When it comes to charging time, the Volkswagen ID.3 Tour is also pretty good. The 58KWh Pro Performance can recharge up to 180 miles in 30 minutes, and on a full charge, you can expect to travel a range of 265-295 miles. Check out Volkswagen ID. 3 Tour leasing options now.
