12 Longest Range Electric Cars Available in The Market in 2019
05/22/19 • Michael Martinez, EZ-EV Environment & Sustainability Specialist
Without question, one of the biggest worries for anyone considering a transition to an electric vehicle is that they’ll run out of charge before they get to where they need to go. In the world of EV’s, that fear is known as “range anxiety,” and it’s something almost all of us have felt. For people with a long commute or the frequent roadtripper we’ve compiled this list of cars that’ll help you leave range anxiety in the dust:
1 - 2019 Tesla Model S Long Range: 370 miles
The Tesla Model S is not only one of the most luxurious cars on the market, it also packs the longest distance. Depending on the type of battery you opt for (the 75D, 100D, or the P100D) your range could last days (or weeks!) without ever needing to charge back up. The 100D offers the longest driving range, while the P100D packs the best performance and luxury finishes, but still features an industry-leading distance that beats out almost every competitor.
2 - 2019 Tesla Model X Long Range: 325 miles
Most Teslas have an impressive driving range and the Model X is no different. Unlike Tesla’s other models, the Model X is a crossover, giving you the flexibility of more cargo room and interior space with enough seats for 7 adults. But just because it’s a crossover doesn’t mean it sacrifices any of its luxury or driving range. The distance the Model X will take you on one charge beats out many of its smaller rivals. The most mileage is available in the 100D package, which has a 100 kWh battery pack with front and rear electric motors.
3 - 2019 Tesla Model 3 Long Range: 310 miles
If you want the quality of a Tesla without the hefty price tag, then the Model 3 is your sweet spot. With a price tag less than half of the Model S sedan, the Model 3 maintains Tesla’s signature styling and finishes without sacrificing its industry-leading range. Simplicity is key in the Model 3, capitalizing on a minimalist design theme both inside and out. The Model 3 has established itself as an electric alternative to other compact luxury sedans like BMW’s 3 series and Mercedes’ C class.
4 - 2019 Hyundai Kona EV: 258 miles
Hyundai’s all-electric Kona is a great option if you’re looking for a little more room. With 258 miles of all electric range, it’ll get you to where you need to go and back a couple of times over. Additionally, this car has a ton of trunk space for those big trips and integrates with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you’re always up to date on what’s going on in your world.
5 - 2019 Kia Niro EV: 239 miles
The new Niro EV is designed perfectly for customers who love crossover characteristics but also want all the benefits electric vehicles have to offer. It’s a quiet car, and there’s enough of space for a 6-foot-tall passenger to ride behind a driver of the same size. The Niro EV hits 60 mph in 7.8 seconds, which is quite impressive for a vehicle of its size. There is a new Combined Charging System (CCS) plug and a 220-volt Level II charger which can fully recharge your battery in nine and a half hours. When plugged in to a DC fast charger, the battery can be brought up to a 100-mile recharge in only 30 minutes, which translates to 80 percent of total battery capacity recharged in an hour and 15 minutes.
6 - 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV: 238 miles
Adding to the list of moderately priced EV’s is the Chevy Bolt EV. The Bolt’s 238 mile range makes it an easy competitor when compared to pricier options like the Tesla Model 3. Its hatchback body offers ample space for both passengers and cargo. The Bolt also offers cutting-edge technology ranging from one-pedal driving to battery usage and range analytics, and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Named Motor Trend’s 2017 Car of the Year, the Bolt remains one of the best EVs on the market.
7 - 2019 Jaguar I-PACE: 234 miles
The I-PACE is Jaguar’s first foray into the EV game. In true Jaguar fashion, this car is beautiful both inside and out. However, the real fun happens when you press the pedal. With 400hp and 0-60 acceleration in just 4.4 seconds, you’re bound to have the time of your life driving this thing.

The LEAF’s range has increased every year since its introduction in 2010, and the 2019 model is no exception. The 226-mile range is definitely one that will get you through your everyday routine, but if you need a little extra, the LEAF offers DC fast charging options which can add 88 miles of range in as little as 30 minutes. Nissan continues to add additional features inside the cabin for a more luxurious ride, such as heated seats, heated steering wheels and LED headlights for clear driving.
9 - Audi e-tron: 204 miles
The all-electric e-tron is Audi’s first 100% electric vehicle, and with a starting range of 204 miles, the e-tron is a truly exciting addition to the luxury EV field.

The e-tron’s 95 kWh battery powers two electric motors, one at the front axle and one at the rear, for a combined 355 horsepower.
