They exist: The fully suitable, affordable electric cars, the classic combustion engines of compact and mid-range such as the VW Golf or the Mercedes C-Class are the only car. Germany’s largest electric car portal site tested it.

For long electric cars were considered unaffordable luxury toys or unsuitable, tiny eco-danger. But at the latest since the success of Tesla’s mid-range electric car Model Model 3 it is clear: everyday electric cars with good long-distance range not have to be much more expensive than comparable mid-range burners like the 3 Series BMW. There are now a lot of competition in the electric middle class. Site tested and compared all relevant mid-range electric cars.

The best mid -range electric cars

1. Tesla Model 3: Test winner

With all-wheel drive, over 400 hp and a large 75 kWh battery, the long-range model in the mid-range market is almost unrivaled. The driving performance is outstanding-and make the more expensive performance model almost superfluous. The cheaper standard model can also convince, but does not drive as far as the strong long-distance version.

2. Nissan Leaf E+

The Leaf with the large battery option is very suitable for everyday use and has excellent assistance systems. Unfortunately, the Nissan Leaf is only a limited extent long-distance. Because he lacks a cooling, which holds the battery package at an optimal operating temperature.+More on the subject: Nissan Leaf E+ in the test: So the best leafy man was overheated and frequent quick shops overheated the battery. Quick charging processes then take much longer. The basic version is also sufficient for short distances. Thanks to the high everyday reach and the particularly good assistance system, it is still enough for second place.

3. Hyundai Ioniq: Price tip

The Hyundai Ioniq is considered a hot price tip in the electrical middle class. The new IONIQ with 136 hp and large 39 kWh battery costs around 35.000 euros – before funding. The Koreans are currently increasing the environmental premium to a total of 8,000 euros. This means that the practical Koreans ended easily under the magical 30.000 euro mark. The running costs are also likely to be limited in the IONIQ: its low weight and low air resistance add up to amazingly good consumption values.

More on the subject: Hyundai Ioniq Elektro in the test: Good alternative to Tesla & Co.Unfortunately, the relatively small battery does not allow large ranges: Hyundai promises a good 300 kilometers, 250 should also be in everyday life. The Hyundai still needs almost an hour on the fast loader to fill its empty battery again 80 percent. At the Wallbox, the Huyndai only loads 4.6kw and needs around eight hours for a full load. The predecessor was even faster. The processing is very neat, especially with the higher equipment lines. Overall, you can still get a lot of electric car for the money with the IONIQ.

4. Kia e-niro

The e-niro is a very practical and everyday car with cheap consumption values and good reach. Unfortunately, the high performance of 204 hp and the strong torque of the large 64 kWh variant are not well usable-the traction control is not the mutual traction control. Due to its recuperation performance, the strong motor contributes to the very good consumption values of around 17 kWh per 100 km. The resulting range is convincing. The security and assistance systems have noticeably revised the Koreans – a last finish is still missing. The space is very good, but the trunk for an SUV only sufficient.

The larger range of the e-niro must then be the rash. Unfortunately, the delivery time of the Koreaner grows every day: You have to count on a few months today.All information about the Kia E-Niro

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: "And how far does it come?", is probably the most common and for many most important question when buying electric car. The range plays an outstanding role for many people interested in electricity, because for a long time electric cars had the reputation of being pure city cars without long-distance qualities. Rangwits up to almost 300 kilometers and a poor charging network scored many buyers in this country. Today small city cars offer standard range of 260 kilometers. Really high reach need especially those who often cover long distances without time-consuming loading breaks. 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.

Which is the cheapest electric car?

Electric cars are becoming increasingly popular in Germany – and cheaper: The cheapest electric car in the efahrer database is the Renault Twizy with a purchase price of less than 7000 euros. The number of fissures models under 20.000 euros grows steadily. The current environmental bonus of 6 makes an important contribution.000 euros. Above all, it should promote small and cheap electric models with a smaller range and smaller batteries. However, the Twizy does not receive an environmental bonus because it does not officially drive as a car, but as a quad. Site has already tested the cheapest models. Including cheap streams such as VW e-up, Citroen C-Zero and the electro-smart.

How expensive is an electric car?

Most electric cars are still more expensive than comparable combustion engine – at least in the purchase. Through lower running costs, many models are already expecting today."At first glance, electromobility is expensive and only allows small ranges. Our vehicle comparison shows that there is an offer of affordable electrical or plug-in hybrid models for every need for mobility-and the offer is greater weekly", says Josef Reitberger, editor -in -chief of site.

The site cost calculator shows when an electric car pays off financially compared to a comparable burner financially. Values such as annual mileage, electricity and gasoline costs can be individually adjusted."With the right car, electromobility means low operating costs, great drive comfort and real driving pleasure, ”says Reitberger.

What do the electric car cost 100 kilometers?

The mileage costs of electric cars mainly depend on their consumption. 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. One kilowatt hour of electricity costs around 30 cents in Germany. 100 kilometers with an efficient electric car cost roughly 4.50 euros. A average combustion engine, which consumes eight liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers, comes from an average gasoline price of 1.43 euros per liter to consumption costs from a good ten euros per 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.
