As we’ve noted previously, range anxiety is the number one roadblock for many potential all-electric vehicle (EV) buyers. In an effort to promote EVs, we here at enrg.io have found 10 models that won’t leave you stranded. Here are the top 10 EVs for 2019 ranked by range.
10. Audi e-tron: 205 Mile Range
Audi’s first all-electric offering is the stylish e-tron crossover SUV. In addition to a 205 mile range, the e-tron comes with all-wheel drive and seating for five. Audi plans on debuting additional EVs in 2020.
9. Nissan Leaf Plus – 225 Mile Range
Being a Leaf owner myself, I am a bit biased about how great these cars are. Compared to my 2012 model, the 2019 Leaf is even more amazing. With 214 horsepower and a 225 mile range, the new Leaf is definitely impressive. It is also one of the most affordable cars on the list, making it even more attractive.
8. Jaguar I-Pace – 235 Mile Range
We covered Jaguar’s much celebrated I-Pace in detail last month. The I-Pace is one of those cars that tempts one to utter the phrase: “If money were no object…” Offering 235 miles of range and posh features such as remote startup, Jaguar is looking to compete directly with Tesla’s Model X in the luxury SUV category. It will be interesting to see how well they do.
7. Chevy BOLT EV – 239 Mile Range
Like the Leaf, Chevy’s Bolt EV offers a more affordable transportation option for all the eco-warriors out there. With a laudable 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, the Bolt will get you there fast! Its 240 mile range will also ensure that you aren’t stuck by the side of the road as well.
6. Kia Niro EV – 240 Mile Range
Kia’s hybrid subcompact crossover SUV first hit the market in 2016. In 2019, Kia introduced an EV version of the car to great fanfare. Its not immediately clear how sales are doing thus far, but the Niro EV is sure to be a hot item.
5. Kia Soul EV – 243 Mile Range
Kia has managed to go from 111 miles per charge on its first generation line of Soul EVs to a whopping 243 in its second generation. The car has also been redesigned with sharper lines and more interior room. Starting at around $35,000, the price tag on the Soul EV makes it a real contender in the small EV market.
4. Hyundai Kona Electric – 260 Mile Range
With one of the best ranges of any EV on the market, Hyundai’s Kona Electric is sure to be a best-seller. It’s stylish appearance and exceptional warranty aren’t too shabby either.
3. Tesla Model X – 295 Mile Range
What can I say about the Model X? Its beautiful inside and out, it has an amazing range, and I can’t afford it. For those who can I say, “go for it!”
2. Tesla Model 3 – 305 Mile Range
Finally, a Tesla I can afford! I have a feeling that my next car will be a Model 3 (unless the Model Y gets here a bit faster than expected). Elon and co. have really hit it out of the park with this one.
1. Tesla Model S – 335 Mile Range
The undisputed world heavyweight champion of EVs is the Model S. Tesla’s flagship model remains the EV with the best range and improvements in technology are sure to improve the car’s already impressive 335 mile capability.
