Electric cars: autonomy is not always the same!

Published on

Have you ever heard the legendary phrase that your vehicle’s range always depends on the weight of your foot? Of course, this is also happening in the new world of electric vehicles. But the battery also brought other limitations that didn’t exist in the days of combustion cars.

Electric cars: autonomy is not always the same!

Therefore, there are courses to check the autonomy of electric cars, because this can be very different depending on what kind of track you are on in your daily life. Interestingly, the autonomy of an electric vehicle also changes from season to season! Is it hotter? You will be able to walk longer! It’s cold, your autonomy can be reduced by up to 10%.

But the big difference really lies in the type of course. In other words, the autonomy that you will have in a Tesla Model 3 driven by the Citizen will be very different from that of the car itself, if you were driving on the highway, even if you were driving below the traditional maximum of 120 kilometers per hour.

This is exactly why it is a good idea to make a list of true autonomy to get an idea of ​​the difference. After all, what is the most important point in buying an electric car? It is always the battery, or rather the autonomy that it offers at the end of the day.

Well, in a test of more than 20 electric cars, traveling at 130 km / h on the highway, this was the conclusion.
  • Mercedes EQS 450+ – 482 km
  • BMW iX xDrive50 – 434 km
  • BMW iX M60 – 430 km
  • Genesis G80 – 427 km
  • Mercedes EQE 350+ – 423 km
  • BMW i4 eDrive40 – 415 km
  • Mercedes EQS SUV 580 4MATIC – 411 km
  • BMW i7 – 388 km
  • Skoda Enyaq iV RS – 380 km
  • Nissan Ariya – 378 km
  • Polestar 2 LR – 374 km
  • Audi RS e-tron GT – 367 km
  • Tesla Model 3 LR AWD – 363 km
  • Tesla Model Y LR – 361 km
  • Nio EL7 – 356 km
  • Nio ET7 – 345 km
  • Hyundai Ioniq 6 LR AWD – 340 km
  • VW ID.5 Pro Performance – 340 km
  • Ford Mustang Mach-E GT – 337 km
  • Hyundai Kona Electric – 336 km
  • Porsche Taycan Turbo S Sport Turismo – 336 km
  • Volkswagen ID.4 GTX – 332 km
  • Genesis GV60 Sport Plus – 330 km
  • Volkswagen ID.4 Pro – 328 km
  • Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 4MATIC + – 328 km

In short, according to the test, the electric vehicle with the most autonomy in any situation is the EQS 450+, achieving around 482 kilometers of autonomy with 100% battery. Interesting number! But do you know what autonomy the brand promises? More than 700 km.

So we’re talking about a 30% or more drop, which is obviously significant.

Do you often see electric cars driving slowly on highways? The reason (mainly) is this.
