As battery technology rapidly improves these are the new EVs that will travel the furthest between charg

For a long time range anxiety has been quoted as one of the biggest barriers to drivers considering buying an electric car.

Early EVs were capable of covering pretty feeble distances before needing a charge, putting many people off.

However battery and motor technology has moved on a lot and many modern EVs can cover far more miles on a single charge than most drivers need on a daily, or even weekly, basis.

2021 saw several new cars easily break the 300-mile barrier and we’re now entering the realm of 400-mile-plus EVs.

For many people, especially those without a home charger, public infrastructure is more of a concern than maximum range but it’s reassuring to know you’ve got a big battery should your first choice of charger be out of action.

The market and technology are moving quickly and this year’s list already looks significantly different to last year’s. Undoubtedly that will change again as we move through 2022 but at the moment here are the 10 EVs with the longest range, including models from BMW, Tesla, Skoda, Polestar and Ford.
