Which electric car has the longest range?

One of the biggest arguments against opting for an electric car lease is the range of mileage. Charging for hours can be off-putting if you’re making multiple stops on the motorway!
Thankfully, times are changing, and once short-range vehicles are now being replaced with ever more advanced innovations. Whatever your style, from suave saloon to nippy hatchback, we’ve picked out the longest-range EVs.

Hatchbacks with a long electric range

Renault Zoe

The Renault Zoe has had a makeover – replacing its former 192-mile range model with a better, more luxurious 245-mile version. While it’s not big on luggage space, it’s a safe city run-around that’s ideal for small families.

BMW i3

Slightly less ambitious than some small hatchback models, the top of the range BMW i3 can manage up to 180 miles – ideal for city commuting. It’s still got the luxury status of the BMW, of course, so expect high power.
Saloons with a long electric range

Nissan Leaf e+

Nissan broke into the electric scene with one of the first mainstream EVs, and since then, has upgraded the Leaf e+ to offer a very decent 217 miles.

Audi e-tron

The Audi e-tron is as slick-looking as it is efficient, packing in just shy of 200 miles at 196 miles on a full charge. You can also find this in an SUV version.

Crossovers with a long electric range

Hyundai Kona

Offering a more high-end crossover, the Hyundai Kona can handle an average of 259 miles, or up to 300 depending on the highway chosen.

Jaguar i-Pace

The Jaguar i-Pace earns a very respectable second place, with an average electric range of 253 miles and a stunning exterior to boot. Ample interior space and a domineering road presence make this the ideal business vehicle.
SUVs with a long electric range

Mercedes-Benz EQC

Offering all-wheel drive and 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds, the Mercedes-Benz EQC achieves a fantastic 259 miles on a full charge. Go full power and enjoy winding down country lanes in this gutsy 4x4.

Tesla Model X

We couldn’t get this far without mentioning a Tesla, could we? Of course, with Teslas come an impressive price tag, but it’s more than worth it in this sporty SUV – packing up to an incredible 325 miles.

Ones to watch…

2021 is set to deliver even more treats for the electric market. Business lease deals will benefit from a whole new range of vans set to hit the roads, including the Mercedes e-Sprinter and the Peugeot Partner Electric.
Meanwhile, for personal leasing, look out for the BMW iNext, the Jaguar XJ and the Kia Halo. The latter is one of 11 models set to launch by 2025, and it looks as if there’s a huge market for electric cars set to rival Mr Musk’s Teslas. As electric cars become more affordable, leasing is an ever more attractive option. Confused about which long-range electric vehicle is best for you? Have a chat with the Car Lease Agent team here.
