Which of the 6 electric cars will pass the farthest in the cold: a real testJanuary 16, 2020
British journalists from Carwow decided to close their eyes to the official data, and independently figure out what the real mileage of popular electric cars is.
For the test, they took Nissan Leaf, Kia e-Niro, Audi e-tron, Jaguar I-Pace, Mercedes EQC and Tesla Model 3 in the Long Range version. In order to make the test as fair as possible, and the conditions close to real, all the cars moved along the highway with activated cruise control at a uniform speed, and their climate systems were set to the same temperature.
Which of the 6 electric cars will pass the farthest in the cold: a real test
It just so happened that it is winter in the UK, so in this case we have to talk about checking the autonomy of electric cars precisely in cold conditions, when the range is expected to decrease. After all, as you know, the colder the environment, the more it affects the range of EV. Naturally, in such conditions, more than one electric car “did not reach” the declared figures. But we have the opportunity to see how this or that electric car behaves at a time when you can’t walk outside without a jacket.
The test results are as follows:
Kia e-Niro: 410 km (90% of the declared range)
Nissan Leaf e-Plus: 334 km (87% of the declared power reserve);
Audi e-tron: 331 km (81% of the declared power reserve);
Tesla Model 3: 434 km (78% of the declared range)
Jaguar I-Pace: 359 km (76% of the declared range)
Mercedes-Benz EQC: 312 km (75% of the declared power reserve).
