The autonomy of electric cars is becoming less of a problem. Manufacturers are installing higher capacity batteries, with better chemistry and also with more efficient technologies. With 15.1 kWh/100 km, the Tesla Model 3 is the most efficient electric car, followed by the XPENG P5, the MINI Cooper SE, and the Dacia Spring. But what are the electric cars with more autonomy? We have the updated list in 2022.
In its version with more autonomy, the Lucid Air offers no less than 695 kilometers on a single charge. This version is the Lucid Air Dream Edition R and it does so thanks to a 118 kWh capacity battery. To charge this impressive battery, it can reach up to 300 kW of power in direct current. At the top of the electric cars with the most autonomy, it not only sneaks in with this version, but also with the Lucid Air Grand Touring, Lucid Air Dream Edition P, Lucid Air Pure, and Lucid Air Touring.
The electric sedan from Mercedes-Benz, the Mercedes EQS, is another impressive electric car that stands out, among many other things, for its autonomy. Occupying second place, we are talking about 640 kilometers in its Mercedes EQS 450+ configuration, with a 107.8 kWh capacity battery. It falls just short of Lucid Air at its best and is slightly more efficient. Its consumption is 16.8 kWh/100 km, compared to 17 kWh/100 km for the Lucid Air with more autonomy. And again, in this top electric car with more kilometers of autonomy, there are also the Mercedes EQS 450 4MATIC, the EQS 500 4MATIC, the EQS 580 4MATIC, and the EQS AMG 53 4MATIC+
Tesla Model S
How could it be otherwise, the Tesla Model S occupies a position among the electric cars with more autonomy. The third, specifically, is its Tesla Model S Long Range configuration. This version mounts a 95 kWh capacity battery. And this model stands out for its enormous energy efficiency, with a consumption of 16.2 kWh/100 km. Its autonomy is 585 kilometers and, indeed, within the top 3, it is the most efficient model. Tesla’s experience within the electric car sector has something to do with all this.
Mercedes EQS SUV
Also with the Mercedes EQS SUV, the German has an extra place at the top. It is the first SUV on this list, and the version with which it achieves the best autonomy mark is the Mercedes EQS SUV 450+, with a range of 545 kilometers. It achieves this figure thanks to a battery with a capacity of 107.8 kWh, which is the same as the one mounted on the EQS, and with a consumption of 19.8 kWh/100 km. Its aerodynamics and weight make it less efficient, but the truth is that it is in really good numbers at all levels.
Yes, Mercedes-Benz has done well with its technology for electric cars, and the Mercedes EQE has the fifth position that closing the ranking of electric cars with more autonomy. It does so with the Mercedes EQE 350+ version, with a range of 525 kilometers, and a 90.6 kWh capacity battery. In this case, the consumption is 17.3 kWh. It’s smaller than the models we’ve talked about earlier, of course, but it’s also a smaller and lighter car than the others.
