Which electric cars can cover more than 250 miles on a charge?
Range anxiety can be a big barrier to choosing an electric car, but these models can all cover more than 250 miles between charges – and most can travel a lot farther...
If you're thinking about buying an electric car, the chances are that most 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 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 38 models available with official ranges of at least 250 miles between charges. You may well achieve less than that in real-world driving conditions, but it should still be enough to suit the vast majority of drivers. If you 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, and tell you how much you could save if you buy one. If more than one version of a model can exceed 250 miles, we've chosen the one with the longest range. Cars are presented in alphabetical order.
