If you're thinking about buying an electric car, the chances are that a lot of your research has focused on how many miles the models on your shortlist can take you between charges.

Range anxiety – the fear that you'll run out of juice before getting to your destination – is still one of the biggest barriers to drivers choosing electric cars, but the good news is that ranges are getting better all the time.

In fact, you might be surprised to learn that there are now 42 models available where at least one variant can officially go 250 miles or more without stopping. And while you might well achieve less than that in real-world driving conditions, they should still suit the vast majority of drivers. If you primarily use your car for your commute, for example, it could mean that you only have to charge it up once a week.

In this story, we'll look at every electric car that's officially capable of covering 250 miles between charges. If more than one version of a model can exceed that, we've highlighted the one with the longest range. Manufacturers are presented in alphabetical order.
