Electric car range: These five electric cars get the farthest

The topic Range fear still plays a major role among e-car drivers. Which Electric car comes with a Battery charge the furthest? The manufacturers quantify this Range their cars mostly according to the measurement process WLTP. The value is on the Roller dynamometer measured and raises the question of the Realism on. AUTOMOBILE IMAGE works differently. The editors don’t just test that consumption from burners on the street. The e-cars also have to prove how much energy they consume. Here the direct one comparison: first the Range top 5 according to WLTP and then the Top 5 from the AUTOMOBILE IMAGEEveryday test. So let’s go with them Values ​​according to WLTP:

How does the WLTP test procedure work?

The abbreviation WLTP stands for “Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure”. This since 2017 valid Standard test for new cars does a lot better than the one previously used by manufacturers to identify consumption and Range applied New European Driving cycle (NEDC).
Tesla Model S facelift

According to the WLTP, the Tesla Model S Long Range covers 663 kilometers with one charge. That makes second place in the ranking.

In addition to global comparability of the results, the focus is on the Test conditions closer to everyday use of the car. WLTP consists of a total longer Test cycle and works with more Acceleration– and Brake shares as well as higher Speeds. the Equipment variants are better considered, and the Outside temperatures are more realistic. Still, WLTP takes place overall rather artificial conditions instead of.

How AUTO BILD measures the energy consumption of cars

AUTO BILD determines the power consumption of a car unlike most manufacturers not on the test bench, but tests under realistic conditions in the public Road traffic. The consumption round is 155 kilometre long. It is precisely defined and contains almost equal parts city-, Country roads– and Highway traffic.
Mercedes EQS 580 4Matic

The Mercedes EQS 580 4Matic consumed 26.9 kWh in the AUTO BILD test over the test distance of 155 km. Makes a range of 401 km.

Before the start of the consumption journey and after it is finished full tank or. fully charged. the Air pressure is set correctly, consumer how the air conditioning will be turned off. The consumption rates listed here are due to reloading AC pillars in the AUTO BILD underground car park and also include any Charge losses.
