While the Goldilocks range for electric cars is around 200-miles, having an even longer range makes planning long trips easier. It means you potentially don’t need to charge at all, even from London to Glasgow or another 350-mile+ trip.

The electric car with the longest range on sale in the UK today is the Mercedes-Benz EQS, which has a WLTP range of 450/453-miles.

The Mercedes-Benz EQS goes significantly further than the second-longest range car, the Tesla Model S, which manages up to 405-miles.

Top 10:

  • Mercedes EQS – 450-miles
