The 5 EVs with the longest range (that aren’t made by Tesla)

The current shortest-range Tesla is the 263-mile Model 3 Standard Range Plus, starting at around $40,000. That’s great, but there are plenty of other similar EVs that are worth a look.

Here are five of ‘em.

5. Chevy Bolt EUV

247 Miles — The newest electric car from Chevy, the Bolt EUV is a slightly tweaked version of the Bolt EV. It is a bit longer, with more legroom in the back, and is more luxurious. Its pièce de résistance is the availability of Super Cruise, GM’s completely hands-free driving feature.

4. Volkswagen ID.4

250 miles — The people’s electric car sports a decent range, par for the course in this brave new EV world. The ID.4 is filled with curious design decisions, but the powertrain and battery pack are impeccable. It’ll charge quickly at a DC fast charger, and makes for an excellent everyday runabout.

3. Hyundai Kona Electric

258 miles — The only car on our list available in both EV and gasoline-powered variants. Most would be hard-pressed to tell the electric Kona apart from the ICE version, and perhaps that’s the idea. The Kona, more than most, pushes the idea that an EV doesn’t have to be weird and different. Sometimes it just has to be a car.

2. Chevy Bolt EV

259 Miles — The Bolt EV was the first non-Tesla electric car with a truly useful range (it had 238 miles back in 2017 when it launched) and Chevy has sold more than 88,000 of them over the past few years. Starting at $32,000, it’s not eligible for any tax credits but is still the most affordable EV on our list.

1. Ford Mustang Mach-E RWD California Route 1

305 Miles — This Mustang is a mouthful, but the California Route 1 edition’s aero tweaks give it a five-mile range bump over the standard extended range RWD Mach-E. And that makes it the only non-Tesla EV to have a range over 300 miles, and the best range of any car on our list.
