The most efficient electric vehicle, that provides maximum range, is the Hyundai Kona Electric. This EV can give a range of 452 km on a single charge and the charging time is also decent enough. The next on the list is the Mercedes-Benz EQC, which has a range of 445 km on a single charge. This model is on the expensive spectrum and not within the reach of many. Cars like MG ZS and Tata Nexon electric have a similar range of around 310 km on a single charge, and they are one of the best and affordable options for the mass market. Another option from Tata Motors is Tata Tigor, which has a range of 212 km. On the lower pedestal, are the models from manufacturer Mahindra. The e-Verito and Mahindra e20 plus can give a range between 140-180 km. These models are strictly for a city commute.
In most of the options above for the highest EV range cars, the option for fast charging is available, which can provide almost half of the range in about 4 hours of charging. No doubt the electric vehicles have a promising future with lower running costs and lesser pollution, but the biggest roadblock i.e. the range anxiety has to be dealt with before the EV can be made mainstream. The car manufacturers have to come up with supercharging stations for their electric vehicles, to make them more practical. Also, the grid infrastructure needs to be upgraded, before we can put on the additional load of these vehicles. The government should also explore renewable energy like wind and solar, to make EVs 100% pollution-free.
