The nine electric cars with greater autonomy
If you look at the cars with the highest average autonomy currently on the market, there are no surprises. Tesla continues to dominate in that field. The Tesla Model S 100D and its huge 100 kWh battery is the champion with up to 540 km. And we are not talking about the NEDC cycle, but about real autonomy. Not in vain, It is currently the electric car with the highest average autonomy in the world. It follows logically the Tesla Model X 100D. This does not reach on average 500 km due to its greater weight, greater frontal area, etc.
The two Tesla models currently on sale are also among the most expensive in the market, exceeding 100,000 euros in both cases. In addition, without underestimating the feat of Tesla in the management and delivery of energy are also large cars and therefore can accommodate large batteries. It is not the case of the third model with more autonomy: the Renault ZOE ZE 40 and its 300 km of autonomy in real conditions of use.
The Nissan Leaf, with a 40 kWh battery does not stay very far with up to 270 km of autonomy. And it is not much more expensive than the Renault ZOE (in case you have chosen to buy the batteries of the Renault). It is larger, measuring 4.49 m long (22 cm more than a Volkswagen e-Golf) and, above all, equipped as standard with Nissan’s semi-autonomous driving system, the ProPILOT, from the N-Connecta finish (from 34,850 euros).
