Longest Range Electric Cars for 2020

2020's Longest Range Electric Cars

Battery and range are tightly linked — usually, the bigger the battery, the longer the range. If you’re looking for electric vehicles that can take you the distance, now is a great time to consider one of many long-range options available.

For instance, as of mid-2020, the following battery electric vehicles have the longest range available in the market:

Estimated range for all-electric vehicles continues to increase along with the number of new EVs hitting the road each day. Both battery range and EV adoption have increased rapidly over the last decade. As of around 2010, electric vehicles could barely go above 80 miles on a charge. In contrast, the recently announced Tesla Roadster, for instance, will have a range of over 600 miles!
