It’s all about operating range when it comes to electric cars, with the best of the genre able to run for a several day’s drive on a charge, but with the worst barely able to make it out to the suburbs and back without having to be tethered to an outlet.
Tesla still leads all automakers when it comes to operating range, so Tesla is our no. 1
Tesla still leads all automakers when it comes to operating range, with its flagship Model S sedan in its top P100D version able to run for as much as a claimed 337 miles on a charge.
The closest non-Tesla contender here is the subcompact Chevrolet Bolt EV hatchback, which is estimated to run for 238 miles per charge.
Though the top version of the aforementioned Model S boasts the longest operating range of all consumer EVs in the U.S. at an estimated 337 miles, it costs more to run (at the equivalent of 98 mpg) than the smaller Tesla Model 3.
