Electric Cars With the Longest Range

ev range comparison updated 1 scaled jpg EVs with the longest range | Cars.com illustration by Paul Dolan

For most of us, having a car means having the freedom to roam, whether that means a quick trip to work or a journey across the continent. If you love taking longer trips but want to buy an electric vehicle, chances are you’re no stranger to range anxiety. Range anxiety is the concern that your EV won’t have enough battery capacity to complete a journey, and it’s a fair one given the work-in-progress state of charging networks in North America.

You’re not alone, either. In a Cars.com survey, 68% of EV shoppers said range was a big factor in which EVs they consider, and 63% of EV owners cited range as a big factor when deciding which car they bought. With this in mind, we gathered EVs currently on sale that have published ratings by the EPA for the 2024 model year and offer a minimum of 300 miles of total driving range. The vehicles vary in style and size from luxurious SUVs and high-performance sports sedans to pickup trucks and practical crossovers. All ranges are based on EPA-estimated figures but are purely estimates. Manufacturer estimates don’t cut it for this list — we wanted a standardized data set to compare, hence deferring to the EPA’s figures. We’re also not including vehicles without EPA estimates at this time, like model-year 2024 Teslas. Keep in mind that 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. There may be 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. This article was last updated in March 2024, so range, pricing and availability may have changed by the time you’re reading this.

1. Lucid Air

  • Price: $250,575 (including $1,575 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 427 miles

Yet again, Lucid tops our list of longest-range EVs. If the limited-edition, 1,234-hp Air Sapphire with 427 miles of range is a tad too expensive at nearly a quarter million dollars, there’s also the $71,475 rear-wheel-drive Air Pure. The Air Pure with 19-inch wheels gets 419 miles of range, which would top this list if it weren’t for the Sapphire. EPA figures were not available for Lucid’s other trims at this time, but we can say for certain that the Air is a long-range hero.

2. Hyundai Ioniq 6

  • Price: $43,565 (including $1,115 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 361 miles

The 2024 Ioniq 6 is the second vehicle in Hyundai’s all-electric sub-brand following the Ioniq 5, and the sedan’s base SE RWD variant with 18-inch wheels immediately lands near the top of this list with an EPA-estimated 361-mile maximum range; opting for available all-wheel drive with the base SE model drops the maximum range to 316 miles. The larger 20-inch wheels on the RWD SEL trim further reduces the Ioniq 6’s range to 305 miles, but that’s still enough to get a shout-out on this list.

3. Mercedes-EQ EQS Sedan

  • Price: $105,550 (including $1,150 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 352 miles

The first all-electric model in Mercedes’ EQ sub-brand, the EQS Sedan, arrived for 2022 as a battery-powered counterpart for the S-Class and a new rival for the Tesla Model S. For 2024, the sedan’s RWD single-motor 450+ variant offers the highest range in the lineup at 352 miles. Fortunately, adding dual-motor AWD isn’t much of a range penalty, with both the EQS450 4Matic and more powerful EQS580 4Matic versions ringing in at 345 miles of range. Even its most performance-oriented variant, the AMG EQS, still gets 305 miles of range. We were fans of both non-AMG powertrains we tested as well as the sedans’ nimbleness with rear-wheel steering, but we had issues with the large touchscreen display and Mercedes’ decision to rely on lots of touch-sensitive controls.

4. VinFast VF9

  • Price: $79,800 (destination fee TBD)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 330 miles

New to this list for 2024 is the VinFast VF9, a three-row full-size electric SUV that’s so new, VinFast hasn’t even finalized its destination fees at the time of this writing. VinFast is a Vietnamese automaker with big plans for its expansion into the American market, including a $2 billion manufacturing facility in North Carolina. However, the VF9 is still very much an unknown quantity; VF9 reservations are only $200, however, if you’d like to be an early adopter. The VF9 Eco achieved a 330-mile range on the EPA’s test cycle, making it one of the longest-range options on our list.

5. BMW i7

  • Price: $125,195 (including $995 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 321 miles

BMW’s fully electric 7 Series sedan added a slightly longer-range trim to its lineup for 2024: the RWD single-motor i7 eDrive50, which can go a full 321 miles when equipped with 19-inch wheels. Those who still want the more dual-motor AWD i7 xDrive60 won’t suffer too much of a range penalty, either, as that one still achieves a range of 317 miles with 19-inch wheels. In fact, the only i7s with less than 300 miles of range are the more powerful M70 xDrive and the xDrive60 on 20-inch wheels. All in all, we thought BMW’s quiet but powerful electric drivetrains were a perfect match for its luxurious 7 Series sedan.

6. Polestar 2

  • Price: $51,300 (including $1,400 destination)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 320 miles

If you love the Polestar 2, there’s one spec you can get for maximum range: the Long Range Single Motor. With its base 19-inch wheels, this version is good for 320 miles of range. Upgrading to 20-inch wheels still gets 307 miles of range, but steer clear from the dual-motor drivetrain if you’re gunning for maximum range. We were impressed with the Polestar 2’s power, handling and intuitive interior controls, though we were less impressed by the lack of vibrant exterior hues.

7. Cadillac Lyriq

longest range EVs exterior cars 13 jpg 2024 Cadillac Lyriq | Manufacturer image
  • Price: $58,590 (including $1,395 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 314 miles

The Cadillac Lyriq arrived for 2022 as the luxury brand’s first all-electric model. The SUV comes with a 102-kilowatt-hour battery pack and offers two powertrain options — 340-hp, single-motor RWD and 500-hp, dual-motor AWD — but you’ll want to spec the RWD version to achieve the SUV’s maximum range of 314 miles. New for 2024 are the Tech and Sport variants, the former of which serves as the model’s new base trim.

8. GMC Hummer EV Pickup and SUV

  • Price: $106,945 (including $2,295 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 314 miles

Tied with its Ultium-platform Lyriq sibling despite being a completely different type of vehicle is the GMC Hummer EV, whose three-motor drivetrain configuration achieved 314 miles of range. GMC’s behemoth supertruck also features a gargantuan 246-kWh battery, and we were impressed by its ability to go the distance even though it’s deeply inefficient and can take a while to recharge. Both the three-motor pickup truck and SUV are rated for 314 miles so long as you don’t get the Extreme Off-Road Package with mud-terrain tires, which bumps the Hummer’s range down to 298 miles. The Hummer’s less expensive dual-motor version does not yet have a published rating on the EPA’s website for 2024, but GMC claims it still achieves 303 miles of range in EPA-style tests.

9. Kia EV6

  • Price: $47,325 (including $1,375 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 310 miles

“Is it a hatchback? A wagon? An SUV?” It’s hard to say with some of Kia’s vehicles, including the EV6. The EV6 was Kia’s first EV built on a dedicated all-electric platform, and it’s an impressive vehicle with charging speeds of up to 350 kilowatts, a comfortable ride (so long as you’re not too tall) and an impressive amount of standard equipment. Available in multiple trim levels and single-motor RWD or dual-motor AWD configurations, the range crown belongs to the RWD Light Long Range, Wind and GT-Line variants with 310 miles.

  • Price: $88,245 (including $995 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 307 miles

The iX was BMW’s first electric SUV, and it’s still one of the longer-range options on sale today at 307 miles of range. You can achieve that range in the less powerful xDrive50, as springing for the more powerful M60 prices drops that range to 296 miles. While its styling is certainly polarizing and we weren’t a fan of its capacitive-touch controls, we found our M60 tester to be comfortable, luxurious and fun to drive. All trims come with standard AWD.

11. BMW i4

  • Price: $62,595 (including $995 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 307 miles

Rounding out BMW’s contributions to this list is its i4 Gran Coupe, which added a dual-motor AWD xDrive40 trim that gets 307 miles of range with 18-inch wheels. The single-motor RWD eDrive40 with 18-inch wheels still holds its own with 301 miles of range, so you have choices over 300 miles of range depending on which drivetrain you prefer. As with many other vehicles on the list, when equipped with larger wheels, the price goes up and the range goes down. Like the iX SUV, there’s a more powerful M50 xDrive variant that’s much faster and has AWD, but its maximum range is just 269 miles. While we wish it had more room inside and a frunk, we were impressed overall with how the i4 drives.

12. Kia EV9

  • Price: $60,695 (including $1,495 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 304 miles

The three-row Kia EV9 SUV is one of the most anticipated new models of 2024, and for good reason. Kia’s conventionally powered three-row Telluride is a bestseller after all, and the EV9 is the first SUV of this size at this price. We were impressed with how familiar it feels inside and how spacious it is in all three rows. If you’re looking for maximum range, you’ll want to stick to the Light Long Range RWD variant, which gets 304 miles of range from the EPA.

  • Price: $47,225 (including $1,375 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 320 miles

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a comfortable, spacious and affordable SUV that will also do the distance — 303 miles of it, should you spring for an RWD drivetrain and the larger 77.4-kWh battery pack. While we were frustrated by the lack of physical buttons inside, we were impressed by the Ioniq 5’s fast charging speeds, ride quality and efficient drivetrain. Its segment-bending shape feels bright and airy inside, with ample headroom and legroom.

longest range EVs exterior cars 02 jpg 2024 Audi Q8 e-Tron Sportback | Manufacturer image
  • Price: $78,995 (including $1,195 destination fee)
  • Maximum electric driving range: 312 miles

The old Audi E-Tron is now the Q8 e-Tron for 2024, and with it comes a boost in range as well as a choice between a regular SUV body and the more raked Sportback roof. Just making the cut for our list is the Audi Q8 e-Tron Sportback, which gets an EPA-estimated 300 miles of range when equipped with the Ultra Package. The Ultra Package features 19-inch aero-design wheels, low-rolling resistance tires and extra efficiency programming for its air suspension, so it’s the box to check if you’re looking for the most miles.
