EVs are getting rangier. Top 5 EVs by range for 2020.
Range anxiety is a common problem amongst those considering to get an EV. Images of getting stranded somewhere in the middle of nowhere because your car ran out of juice can be quite daunting, but the good news is, the likelihood of that happening is getting smaller and smaller by the month. There are two major solutions for the EV market to reduce range anxiety for its consumers: 1. Increase the number of public chargers 2. Release electric cars with a larger range. In this post we will be focusing on solution number 2 and seeing what cars have the longest range in 2020.
5. Audi e-tron Sportback - 390km (240mi.)
Arriving in the UK at the beginning of the year, this car will be capable of charging at 150kW charging stations. In terms of range, it is very similar to its predecessor, the Audi e-tron, but will widen the E-car selection offered by Audi.
4. Volkswagen ID.3 - 420 km (260 mi.)
Modelled around the VW Golf, this EV will be released in three configurations, with the above range representing the mid-configuration travel distance. 330 km (205 mi.) range and 550km (340 mi.) range will also be available.
3. Polestar 2 - 440 km (270 mi.)
Polestar is actually Volvo's electric car daughter company. The Polestar 2 will be shipped to customers in the middle of 2020 and is the first full BEV from Volvo. It's sort of an SUV, but also not. In any case, it boasts a great range and will have an initial price tag £49,900.
2. Tesla Model S Long Range, Model X Long Range, Model 3 Long Range - 600km (373 mi.), 530km (328 mi.), 520km (323 mi.) respectively
The name Tesla has become almost synonymous with the word EV. To date, all of Tesla's models: S, 3, X are top range performers in the EV world and in the middle of 2020, a new Tesla, namely the Model Y (the model names now spelling SEXY), will be available to drivers with a 451km (280 mi.) range. Although a lesser range than the already available Tesla models, the ranges of all Tesla cars have been at the top end of the list for ever.
1. Rivian R1T - 660+ km (400+ mi.)
Set to go out into production at the end of 2020, the Rivian R1T would be the electric car with the longest range available to drivers. The SUV can do 0 - 100km in 3 seconds and has quad-motor system with up to 750hp.
