The electric vehicle industry has grown tremendously over the last decade. Electric cars are now a common sight on our streets, and if the trend continues, gas-powered cars may soon be considered a thing of the past. However, there’s still a good number of gearheads that swear they’ll never switch to EVs. One of the main reasons why they’re reluctant to make the switch is range anxiety — the fear that an EV may not have enough battery life to complete a journey.
Thankfully, manufacturers have been hard at work developing new technologies aimed at improving the range of EVs. Let’s explore ten incredible long-range EVs that can comfortably cover more than 200 miles on a single charge – which is more than most people need.
Volkswagen ID.4 – 250 Miles
Kicking us off is one of the new entrants to the EV market — the Volkswagen ID.4. The ID.4 is the first of Volkswagen’s ID line of EVs to go on sale in the US, and it’s already looking like one of the best electric SUVs money can buy today.
The ID.4 is powered by an 82 kWh battery pack which is good for 250 miles when fully charged, making it a great option for long and short trips. The ID.4 has a single electric motor sending 201 hp to the rear wheels.
