Top 5 EVs You Can Buy Today Ranked By Range Staff
by Staff

If you're considering switching to an electric vehicle battery range is likely to come up frequently during your shopping process. "Range anxiety" isn't so much about how far you can go, involving factors like managing your energy consumption, mapping out where you can find a fast charger, and how long it will take you to refill. It's not as easy to recharge a dead battery as it is to dump a can of fuel into an empty gas tank.

These are five of the top electric vehicles already on sale offering the most range according to EPA estimates:

The rear-drive Ioniq 6 offers the most range.

5) Hyundai Ioniq 6 Long Range

Hyundai's futuristic electric sedan, the Ioniq 6, stands out by providing the most mileage in its base trim. The rear-wheel-drive Ioniq 6 SE achieves up to 361 miles on a full charge, surpassing the more luxurious SEL and Limited models with dual-motor all-wheel drive.

The Tesla Model S propelled the EV market to the forefront.

4) Tesla Model S

The Tesla Model S, is perhaps the most well-known EV since its debut in 2013. It continues to offer impressive range and performance even as it passes its 10th birthday. For those prioritizing battery range, the base-spec all-wheel drive version is the best choice, providing up to 402 miles on a single charge. The performance-oriented Model S Plaid offers 359 miles of range, which is still plenty.

The Rivian R1T and R1S are basically the same vehicle.

3) Rivian R1T and R1S

While different enough in presentation, the Rivian R1T and R1S are basically the same proposition.

To achieve the best possible range on either model, opt for the Dual Max configuration, which includes one motor per axle and the largest available battery pack. The pickup R1T offers 420 miles of range, while the boxier and heavier R1S sacrifices a mere 10 miles of travel.

Chevy claims the Silverado SV can tow 10,000 lbs

2) Chevrolet Silverado EV 4WT

Chevy's all-electric pickup truck shares its Ultium platform with corporate siblings the GMC Hummer EV, GMC Sierra EV, and Cadillac Escalade IQ. It features a fold-down midgate that extends the pickup bed into the rear-seat area, like the old Chevy Avalanche.

The 4WT work truck variant is the most efficient in the lineup, offering 450 miles of range,

Chevy claims the truck can tow up to 10,000 pounds. However, much like fuel economy, there's no way you're getting close to that range if you're towing even half that amount. For those seeking a more premium experience, the RST variant provides 440 miles of range, yet it comes with a starting MSRP of nearly $100,000

The Lucid Air is the undisputed range champion.

1) Lucid Air

The top-tier Grand Touring model offers up to 516 miles on a single charge, but this is achievable only if you opt for the 19-inch "Aero Range" wheels. Selecting the heavier 20-inch wheels reduces the range slightly to 485 miles, which still tops the list.

It's important to note that other Lucid Air variants also post excellent range numbers: the Air Sapphire delivers 427 miles of range, the Air Touring provides 425 miles, and the Air Pure offers 419 miles.
