A while back, I showed you the 5 EVs with the longest range (that aren’t made by Tesla). This is because Tesla — which has been making more EVs for longer than just about anyone — makes all the longest-range electric cars on the market.
Competition is great, but when it comes to all-electric range, Elon’s EVs are king.
The best non-Tesla is a version of the Ford Mustang Mach-E that rates 305 miles. Here’s how it stacks up to Tesla’s best.
326 Miles — The Tesla Model Y Long Range AWD has the best range of any Model Y, though that’s also the lowest mileage of the Tesla lineup.
The Standard Range Model Y can go 244 miles, according to the EPA, an 82-mile difference from best to worst.
353 Miles — The Model 3 is the “affordable” Tesla, starting at a mere 220 miles of range for just under $40,000. But you can load it up with batteries and get the 353-mile Long Range version for about $9,000 more.
First, 400 miles is a really long way to run on electricity. And second, Elon Musk himself said that, above 400 miles, “more range doesn’t really matter.”
Perhaps this will be the longest-range Tesla ever... though we doubt it.
