Lucid Air Dream Edition R: 836 km

The current king of autonomy comes from Lucid with his Air. It has up to 836 km in its top specification. Of course, to get there, you will have to go through no less than five variants, from the entry-level Air Pure (480 hp and 653 km) to the Dream Edition R of superior autonomy (930 CV and 836 km).

The ‘R’, if you’re wondering, stands for Range -autonomy, in English- and should not be confused with the Dream Edition ‘P’, for Performance -performance, in English-. That variant gives you 1,111 hpbut limits the range to about 758 km.

Mercedes EQS 450+ AMG Line: 730 km

Yes, you could travel the 530 miles from London to Edinburgh by train, but you’d also have to share that train with more people, and no one needs that stress in their life. Instead, why not kick back in Mercedes’ electric limousine, the EQS, which the German manufacturer claims runs up to 730km in its most efficient configuration?

Okay, could be closer to a few 645km by roadbut that shouldn’t be a problem for the EQS and its big 108kWh battery, right?

Tesla Model S: 650km

For a car that launched in 2012, it’s testament to Tesla that the Model S remains in the top three for range 10 years later. These days it’s available in just two versions: the entry-level dual engine with all-wheel drive and 650 km of autonomyor Plaid, high specification.

In the latter, we are talking about a car equipped with three engines, with 1020 hp and a slightly reduced autonomy to 637 km. Whether you can handle the ‘yoke’ wheel is another matter entirely.

BMW iX xDrive50: 610km

Meet the BMW iX, the first electric vehicle specially designed from BMW from the i3. That style is quite…quirky, right? But the traveling car correspondent from topgearPaul Horrell assures us that it looks better in person than the images suggest.

There are two versions, both twin-engine and with all-wheel drive. We start with the xDrive40, with a 71kWh battery, good for touring up to 413km. There is also the xDrive50, with 105.2kWh and capable of traveling 610km. No, I’m still not convinced by the look…

Ford Mustang Mach-E Extended Range RWD: 610km

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is available with a 75 battery (Standard Range) or 98kWh (Extended Range), and with a single engine (rear-wheel drive) or double engine (all-wheel drive).

The one you want to have to have maximum autonomy is the extended rangesingle engine variant, which can range up to 610km.

Tesla Model 3 Long Range: 601km

The Model 3 is one of the best-selling electric cars, illustrating the growing popularity of electric vehicles. The StandardRange gives you rear-wheel drive and a range of about 490km. Something better gives you the variant long-rangewith dual motor, all-wheel drive and 601 km of autonomy.

Of course, if it comes to performance, look for the Performance. It offers a time from 0 to 100 km/h of 3.1 seconds and an autonomy of about 547km. Would you bet against it being the best seller again this year?

BMW i4 eDrive40 Sport: 587 km

“As a driver’s car, the i4 is the best electric you can get for the money,” we recently concluded when comparing BMW’s electric sedan to the Polestar 2, and the eDrive40, capable of touring up to 587kmget a high score in the autonomy game too.

BMW also offers the twin-motor i4 M50, capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, with a slightly reduced range of 511km. It’s still more than enough to cover the average 37km round trip, if you factor that in…

Tesla Model X: 560km

Completing Tesla’s hat-trick is the Model X, which deserves applause for being on this list despite its curb weight of 2500 kg. Underneath, it shares the platform and engines with the Model S, and is also available in similar configurations.

On the one hand, we have the entry-level dual motor, in an all-wheel drive variant and with 560 km of autonomy. Then there is the Plaid, equipped with three engines, with 1020 hp and an autonomy of 535km. But if you come up short, there’s always Tesla’s excellent Supercharger network for fast charging.

Volvo’s former racing arm has now turned its attention to electric vehicles, and it too is starting to make a name for itself for all the right reasons. Leading the way is the Polestar 2, with the entry-level single engine version offering a 64kWh battery and a range of up to 442 km.

On the other hand, the Long Range with one engine has 78kWh and will do 540 km with a single charge. The top of the performance tree is occupied by the dual motor Long Range version, with the same 78kWh battery but a range reduced to 480km.

Skoda Enyaq iV 80X: 530 km

Skoda’s first purpose-built electric is available in three pleasantly easy-to-understand versions: 60, 80 and 80x. The Enyaq iV 60 has a 58kWh battery, good for touring 407km.

The models with badge 80 they have a 77kWh battery. The first offers up to 530kmand the 80x is focused on performance, as it adds an additional motor and all-wheel drive, marking 502 km of autonomy.

It’s also quite a practical car, with three rear seats in the back that make it perfect for taking the kids to school, plus a boot big enough for four-legged friends to come along too.
