10 popular electric cars and their ranges: So far they really drive
Efahrer / Moritz Diethelm 10 popular electric cars and their ranges: So far they really drive
The practice range of electric cars often deviates significantly from the range specified by the manufacturers. Site explains where the difference comes from and shows the range differences of the most popular electric cars.
For links on this page, Site receives. A commission from the dealer, Z.B. For marked. More information cars and combustion engines are different in many aspects, but they could not be more similar in one thing: Both are far more inefficient in practice than indicated by the manufacturer. The difference between practical consumption and the manufacturer is how car manufacturers determine the consumption of cars, namely via the globally uniform test procedure WLTP. WLTP stands advertised for "Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure", So in German about "worldwide harmonized test procedure for light vehicles".
How do you best test electrical areas?
Car manufacturers around the world have had to test the consumption of their cars with the WLTP process since 2013. The UN had developed it to the older, still more remarkable test procedure NEFZ ("New European driving cycle") to replace. For this they collected real consumption data from fourteen countries. More on the subject: Plain-wide fear: As much range, an electric car needs reallyim WLTP test. The cars drive a half-hour, given test run. It is intended to simulate realistic driving inside and outside of cities with various speeds, accelerations, switching times and temperatures and road conditions and thus enable a comparable conclusion to practical everyday life in mixed operation.

Site is constantly testing current electric cars and subjects it to a wide variety of consumer tests in practice. Depending on the test cycle, there are also large differences between the consumption according to WLTP standard and practice.
The deviation in the site long-distance test on the highway is particularly high. The fully charged electric car drives a predefined motorway round with a constant GPS-calibrated pace from 130 km/h. Then the testers fully charge the battery and determine the real power consumption. Site compared the WLTP- with the highway area of the ten most popular e-cars. How far do I get with an electric car? Many who want to buy or lease are asking themselves this question. The site range computer shows how far you can drive with an electric car, hybrid or plug-in hybrid purely electrically.To the Reichsteiten computer!These 10 popular electric cars best adhere to their range on the highway1. Hyundai IoniqHyundai has been offering the IONIQ as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric car for almost five years. In the Efahrer practical test, the streamlined compact limousine proved to be particularly economical. And the Ioniq also cuts a good figure in WLTP comparison. Instead of the specified 311 WLPT kilometer, the Ioniq creates 211 kilometers on the motorway. With more than two thirds of real reach, the Ioniq test winner is.

2. Tesla Model 3Teslas Model 3 is also efficient. In the Efahrer WLTP comparison, however, the Tesla must be beaten by the Korean. The Model 3 does not completely manage the two thirds and has to go back to the electricity after 260 instead of 406 motorway kilometers.3. Renault ZoeAlso Renault’s popular electric small car Zoe is not a rangwide mogue pack. Instead of the specified 389 WLTP kilometer, the Zoe on the highway creates at least 250 kilometers at a time and is therefore only one percentage point worse than the Tesla.4. VW e-up!The VW e-up! Also separates only one percentage point from the place on the podium. The efficient small car is sponging at least 160 motorway kilometers at a time instead of the specified 260 kilometers before it has to be charged.5. VW ID.3Also Volkswagen’s electrical golf heritage ID.3 is part of the percentage polonaise. He creates 61 percent of the specified range on the highway, namely 260 instead of 426 kilometers without a charging stop.

6. Opel Corsa-eThe Opel Corsa-E comes with a standard range of 337 kilometers for a small car. On the highway, however, it only long for 200 kilometers in the Efahrer test. 7. Mercedes EQAThe Mercedes EQA is the first SUV in the norm-real area comparison and only makes it in 7th place. While the standard provides for 426 kilometers, the EQA in the Efahrer practical test on the highway manages only 253 kilometers.8th. Ford Mustang Mach-EFords electrician is also an SUV. With 300 real motorway kilometers instead of 540 WLTP standard kilometers, the sporty AMI is still loosely above the 50 percent hurdle in the Efahrer test.

9. VW ID.4The SUV construction also refers VWS new electric SUV ID.4 on the back places. Despite its wind -slip optics, the ID creates.4 on the highway only 287 kilometers. That is only 55 percent of the promised 522 standard kilometers and therefore one percentage point worse than the electrician.10. Skoda EnyaqThe Skoda Enyaq is with the VW ID.4 technically closely related. Nevertheless, in the motorway test, he managed another 10 kilometers less than the ID.4. But his 277 kilometers of motorway are even more than half of the 536 WLTP kilometers specified.
How we test
Site tests hydrogen cars, plug-in hybrids and electric cars yourself. The test procedures are based on what really interests the driver: how far does an electric car drive? How long does the charging take? How well the car drives? What equipment is up to date today? The industry really solves its advertising promises?In every vehicle class there are various electric car models, various versions, performance levels, sizes and usage scenarios. Since the overview is not so easy. In order not to have to shear all cars over a comb, Site e-cars divided into different categories: Small cars such as the VW e-up!, Small cars such as the Renault Zoe, compact electricity such as the Tesla Model 3, compact SUV such as the Tesla Model Y, larger electric SUV such as the Audi E-Tron, family cars such as the Nissan Evalia E-NV200 and expensive electrical sports cars such as the Porsche Taycan.While cheap electric small cars like the VW e-up! Are particularly cheap everyday cars for the city and the surrounding area, you want to be used for frequent long -distance trips with large batteries with lots of electricity for high ranges and with fast charging power – which are then correspondingly expensive.The efahrer measurements are based where possible on recognized test methods or ISO standards-and are as accurate as you have to be in order to be able to make a really practical statement. For example, the Efahrer testers not only read the consumption of electric cars and hybrids on the on-board display, but also measure the real consumption on the calibrated 22 kW wall box or the petrol pump.

For new car categories, engineers and experts in weeks of work design tailor-made tests and vote closely with the Efahrer editors-after all, the test results are the basis for the entire editorial report in the area of test and purchase advice. Efahrers also constantly develops established test procedures and thus ensure that the results always meet the current requirements of the users.Site evaluates the five most important aspects of electric cars: range, consumption, charging, performance, assistance systems, space and comfort. In each of these partial ratings, the best e-car receives the grade 1.0-the others correspondingly worse grades. The various test results are then evaluated and weighted arithmetically and form the basis for the site test judgment in school grades and e-car ranking.
- Range: This leaderboard lists the electric cars available in Germany descending according to their standard range according to the WLTP cycle. WLTP stands for "Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure" and denotes a globally uniform test procedure for determining fuel consumption, exhaust gas emissions and also the range of electric cars and hybrids. In our vehicle tests we take a critical look. Efahrer test notices are not based on manufacturer’s information, but the testers measure on consumers how far electric cars drive in the city, the highway and on the country road.
With the electric car, practical consumption and thus the range depend not only on technology, driving style and speed, but also from the outside temperature. The Efahrer range of the range shows how far you can drive with an electric car under everyday conditions.
- consumption: For petrol or diesel cars, most drivers can assess realistic consumption. With electric cars this is not yet in case. Just like with the otomotor, the consumption of consumption per 100 kilometers is calculated in the electric car – but of course in kilowatt hours of electricity and not in liters. How much an electric car consumes exactly depends on various factors, but above all on the vehicle and the efficiency of the engine. In principle, as with the combustion engineer – the rule: the larger and heavier, the higher the consumption. As with combustion engines, consumption in the electric car also plays an important role in the ecological balance and running costs. Electric cars of the same class also differ significantly in the case of consumption. The manufacturers are often far above the real consumption determined by site. At the "Refuel" All e-cars have loss losses, which means that part of the electrical energy from the charging connection is lost as heat in charging electronics and battery. Although the energy is ultimately lost, the customer still has to pay for it. In order to determine the real consumption of electric cars, Site measures the usable battery capacity on a 22 kW change of change wall box and determines for consumer trips on fixed routes in the city, over the country and on the highway, how efficiently the drive deals with electrical energy, and what range results from this in the end.
- Load: If you have an electric car, you never need fuel again. But electric cars need electricity. That "Refuel" However, electricity is completely different from fuel tanks: electric cars can be loaded on the domestic sockets, on various alternating current wall boxes and on DC low-speed loaders. Site determines the maximum practical charging capacity of e-cars on 16 and 32-ampere wall boxes (corresponding to a maximum of 11 kW and 22 kW charging capacity). If the electric car has direct current connections, Efahrers determine the maximum charging capacity and checks how long a car can maintain this charging capacity. In the end, two questions are particularly interesting: How long does an electric car need to charge electricity for 100 kilometers on the Wallbox or on the DC quick charging station?
- performance: Anyone who has already driven a car or slot car knows that electric cars offer a lot of driving fun. A whole series of technical peculiarities make e-cars real driving dynamics guarantees. The experience of electrical driving is a lift torque from the stand and delay -free acceleration when entering the driving pedal. Site checks the manufacturers’ performance information in practice and check whether the often high theoretical performance values bring a real advantage in everyday life: this includes performance, torque, acceleration from 0 to 60 and 100 km/h as well as the top speed. In order to bring the high performance of electric cars onto the street and to get the often relatively heavy electric vehicles out of the curve or through wet road surface, many electric cars have all-wheel drive. There are plus points for good traction. Even sensible driving modes such as a particularly economical ecological mode, particularly intelligent automatic mode or dynamic sports mode have a positive effect on the performance evaluation.
- Assistance systems: Many electric cars are not only progressive in terms of drive. They also want to play at the forefront of assistance systems: some even promise autonomous driving or autopilot. The Efahrer experts put the manufacturer’s promise to test and check how intelligently cruise control behave in different situations, for example how safe the takeover of speed limits works, whether the car is overtaking on the right, how safe track, pedestrian and emergency brake assistants function whether traffic lights are recognized and take a look at the cross traffic warning.
- Space and comfort: Many electric cars are developed from scratch as an electric car. This enables completely new room and vehicle concepts: the gear tunnel is eliminated and where the engine compartment is in the case of burners, some e-cars have additional storage space. Other manufacturers simply upgrade their combustion models on an electric drive. In the best case, there is as much space in the electrical version as in the combustion engine because the electric technology in the underbody and engine compartment can be accommodated. In the worst case, the space for passengers and luggage suffers. Site checks the space available for passengers and luggage, checks the ISOFIX connections for child seats, takes a look at the size and usability of the trunk and the storage compartment for charging cables. Also pay attention to a good all -round view. There are other plus points for high payload and trailer load. Together with the electronics experts from Chip, the site testers also check the infotainment system. You check the head-up display, the integration Apple-Car-Play and Android Auto, test the integrated navigation system and the connectivity of the car with regard to the shop and climate.

What range have electric cars?
The range of electric cars is very different. Depending on the vehicle, it is between around 100 and 600 kilometers. The range of electric cars depends largely on their battery capacity and their electricity consumption.The capacity of batteries is given in kilowatt hours, for short kWh,. Small electric cars with city reach such as the Citroen C-Zero have batteries with a capacity of around 15 kilowatt hours. Electric cars for the long distance have large, heavy, expensive batteries with capacities of up to 100 kilowatt hours. These giant batteries provide juice for long distances, can be loaded with ultra quickly and can also quickly release a lot of electricity. In this way, they enable high performance and the fastest accelerations.Consumption also plays a role: efficient electric cars such as Hyundai Kona or the BMW i3 can be moved in everyday life with around 15 kWh of electricity per 100 kilometers. Larger, more efficient electric cars with up to 25 kWh per 100 kilometers need significantly more electricity.

The topic of range and electric car regularly ensures heated discussions. But how much reach does an electric car need now? The range of most electric cars is actually too low for everyday life?Ultimately, this is of course different, but there are some studies that allow interesting conclusions. For example, the scientists of the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy in cooperation with the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research Heidelberg IFEU found that German commuters cover four out of a maximum of 40 kilometers on four out of five days. During the examination period of one year, around half of the vehicles did not drive more than 250 kilometers on the day. With the assumption of an average range of 250 kilometers with a battery charge, this means that almost half of the vehicles, if they were electric cars. Even around one fifth of all cars covered more than 150 kilometers on the day. The remaining 53 percent of the cars continued on at least one day in the examined period. However, these trips made up just one percent of all routes covered during the examination period.With the electric car, practical consumption and thus the range depend not only on technology, driving style and speed, but also from the outside temperature. The Efahrer range of the range shows how far you can drive with an electric car under everyday conditions.AdvertisementConsumer survey: How do you find out before buying a new product?If you take your way to the next Media Markt, you look for information on the net or ask your neighbor for your recommendation?
How expensive are 100 kilometers with the electric car?
The mileage costs of electric cars mainly depend on their consumption. Efficient electric cars such as the Hyundai Kona or the BMW i3 can be moved in everyday life with around 15 kWh of electricity per 100 kilometers. One kilowatt hour of electricity costs around 30 cents in Germany. 100 kilometers with an efficient electric car cost roughly 4.50 euros. An average combustion engine, which consumes eight liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers, comes from average gasoline price of EUR 1.43 per liter on consumption costs from a good ten euros per percussion of 100 kilometers. In the case of petrol or diesel cars, most drivers can assess realistic consumption. With electric cars this is not yet in case. Just like with the otomotor, the consumption of consumption per 100 kilometers is calculated in the electric car – but of course in kilowatt hours of electricity and not in liters. How much an electric car consumes exactly depends on various factors, but above all on the vehicle and the efficiency of the engine.In principle, as with the combustion engineer – the rule: the larger and heavier, the higher the consumption. As with combustion engines, consumption in the electric car also plays an important role in the ecological balance and the running costs of a car. Electric cars of the same class differ significantly in the case of consumption. The manufacturer’s instructions are often well below the real consumption determined by site.At the "Refuel" Some e-cars have loss losses, which means that part of the electrical energy from the charging connection is lost in charging electronics and in the battery as heat.
