The 10 electric cars with the longest range

In fact, all of the models on this list yield more than 200 miles of range. If you’re concerned about the cost of an EV, here’s another pleasant surprise: some of the vehicles on this list have a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price starting in the $30,000s.

The new Porsche Taycan.

As we noted in our first review of the 201-mile-range Porsche Taycan, “Porsche’s sedan feels every bit as substantial as the company’s own Panamera, and every bit as sporty as its 911. While build quality is excellent, and the options list is extensive, more important to an enthusiast is the fact that the Taycan’s electric propulsion doesn’t get in the way of driving – actually, we’d argue that its seamless implementation improves the behind-the-wheel experience.”
