Real Range: which electric car can go farthest in the real world?

The real ranges of electric cars put to the test!



With demand for electric models soaring, tests have been developed to show the Real Range between charges. Here we reveal the best and worst performers...


One by one, the barriers to electric car ownership are being removed, as charging infrastructure improves, costs come down and the cars themselves become as luxurious as conventional models.


But what about range anxiety?

For all the improvements, this nagging concern that the battery will run flat before you get to where you’re going continues to put many people off.


It doesn’t help that official figures are unrealistic. So, tests are now putting every electric car through a Real Range test that reflects the way people actually drive and allows direct comparisons.
