Experts tested electric cars and make a rating of models with the largest power reserve.

Note that today there are three methods for assessing the range for electrified vehicles: NEDC, WLTP and EPA. Note that the most stringent – the American EPA – is the closest to real conditions.

However, Autocar reporters conducted their research on 12 electric cars. The tests involved Renault ZOE R135, Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia Niro EV, Jaguar I-Pace, Nissan LEAF e +, Tesla Model 3 Performance, Model 3 Standard Range Plus, Model S and Model X P100D, Mercedes-Benz EQC, Audi e -tron, as well as the BMW i3.

The leader of the test was the Korean model Hyundai Kona Electric with an indicator of 417 kilometers. Next comes the British Jaguar I-Pace (407 km) and Kia Niro EV (407 km). Also in the top five were two models of the American Tesla brand – Model 3 Performance and Model X P100D.

The Japanese Nissan LEAF e + drove on a fully charged battery of 349 kilometers, and the German Mercedes-Benz EQC – 335 kilometers. In turn, the power reserve of the Tesla Model S was 328 kilometers, the Audi e-tron -315 km, and the Renault ZOE R135 – 309 km.

Experts also noted that the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus is capable of 291 kilometers on a charged battery, and 266 kilometers on a BMW i3.
