Driving range is one of the biggest concerns for car shoppers considering an electric car. That’s because range anxiety, the concern that your electric car or SUV won’t have the battery life needed to complete a journey, is one very strong motivating factor. Like running out of gasoline in a conventional car, driving an EV that’s suddenly out of charge is no one’s idea of fun.

With this in mind, we gathered 13 electric cars currently on sale with published ratings by the EPA for the 2021 model year that offer a minimum of 200 miles of total driving range. The vehicles vary in style and size, from luxurious SUVs and high-performance sports sedans to handy hatchbacks and practical crossovers. We start at the top with the car that delivers the best range per recharge, then work our way down.
All ranges are based on EPA-estimated figures but are purely estimates. Your range may vary depending on a number of factors, including weather, where you drive, driving style, occupancy and more.
Prices listed here are for the specific trim that delivers the best driving range. For some vehicles, such as the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Hyundai Kona EV, there’s only one powertrain available, and all trims deliver identical range. In other cases, as with the Tesla Model 3 and Nissan Leaf, there are sizable differences in driving range depending on the trim you choose. Any potential local, state or federal EV tax incentives were not factored into our pricing information.
