Electric cars are becoming seriously popular, as the number of options and styles continue to boom.

There are now all kinds of choices, from small city cars through to seven-seat SUVs and plenty in between. But the question most people want to know before making the switch to an EV is: “How far can it go?” And while the average daily journey is well within the range of every electric car on sale today, that long-distance flexibility is still the deciding factor for many buyers.

So if you’re after an EV that won’t require regular charging stops, these are the models to explore…

Tesla Model S – 416 miles

It’s a testament to how ahead of its time it was that – nearly a decade on – the Tesla Model S continues to have the longest range of any electric car on the market today (though when it’s released soon, the Lucid Air Grand Touring will compete).

Though it has received various updates over its time, the Model S continues to be a practical and tech-laden EV.

Ford Mustang Mach-E – 379 miles

Ford has ensured that its first bespoke EV isn’t one that will go unnoticed, and it’s safe to say the Mustang Mach-E has achieved that. With its muscle car-inspired looks, tech-laden interior and sporty driving experience, it takes a different path to many other electric cars on the market.

But its stand-out feature is arguably its range. Choose a version fitted with the large 88kWh battery and rear-wheel-drive configuration, and Ford claims you could get a seriously impressive 379 miles between charges.

BMW i4 – 365 miles

BMW is really ramping up its electric car range. The i4 is out soon, which will be the new saloon model, based on this 4 Series Gran Coupe that has an impressive 365-mile range, thanks to its efficiency and naturally aerodynamic shape.

Packing a premium interior and the brand’s latest technology, these models really compete with the Tesla Model S.

Tesla Model 3 – 360 miles

Speaking of the Model 3, this is a car that’s proven hugely popular and is now the UK’s best-selling EV – wowing buyers with its strong performance, tech-laden interior and also its long range.

You should choose the ‘Long Range’ version for the best long-distance capabilities.

Tesla Model X – 348 miles

Yes, it’s another Tesla on this list, with even the brand’s largest Model X being able to go the distance, with 348 miles on a full charge.

This is a seriously impressive electric car, with a surprisingly good driving experience despite its vast size, while its huge interior is one of the only electric cars you can choose with seven seats on the market today.

Volkswagen ID.3 – 340 miles

Volkswagen’s ID.3 helps to pave the way for Volkswagen’s electric future, and it’s certainly impressed so far with its funky styling, roomy interior and excellent driving experience.

Though the German brand offers a whole range of options to suit plenty of buyers, the one you want if you want for the best range is the ‘Tour’ model, which is the only version to come with a large 77kWh battery, which enables a seriously impressive range.

Skoda Enyaq iV – 331 miles

Sticking with the Volkswagen Group theme, next up we have the Skoda Enyaq iV – the brand’s first bespoke EV. Though using the same underpinnings as the ID.3, the Enyaq is instead a roomy SUV that’s ideal for all the family.

Like the Volkswagen, you can choose it with a range of battery options, with the 77KWh battery model able to travel for an impressive 331 miles on a single charge. It’s worth ticking the box for 125kW rapid charging capability, though, to speed up those charges while you’re on the move.

Audi Q4 e-tron – 323 miles

Now for another model using the VW Group’s MEB electric car platform, and this time it’s Audi’s new Q4 e-tron. Offering a roomy interior, superb build quality and an appealing driving experience, this EV is expected to become one of the German firm’s most popular cars.

Again, you’ll want the large 77kWh battery if you want the best range, with this Q4 40 e-tron able to achieve up to 323 miles from a single charge in the sleek Sportback body style, or 316 miles if you choose the more conventional SUV body style.

Volkswagen ID.4 – 322 miles

The Volkswagen ID.4 is essentially a sibling model to the Enyaq and Q4 e-tron, and also excels with its spacious interior and surprisingly good driving experience.

Both 52kWh and 77kWh battery options are available, but you want to choose the latter for the best range, with Volkswagen claiming the ID.4 can go up to 322 miles when specified in the entry-level ‘Life’ trim level.
