We drove these electric cars until they DIED!
Coronavirus: Click here for advice for car buying during the pandemic - bit.ly/-Car-Buying-Advice
How far can these electric cars go before they die?! We drove the Tesla Model 3, Audi e-tron, Jaguar I-Pace, Nissan Leaf, Kia e-Niro and Mercedes EQC across the UK to see how long they could last! Sure, the smart money is on the Tesla, with its claimed range of up to 348 miles - but can the manufacturer's figures really be trusted? Will victory instead go to the sporty-feeling I-Pace, or the posher EQC? Or will the more affordable likes of the e-Niro and Leaf pull a major upset and make it the furthest? There's only one way to find out...

      If your battery is kept around 20-23 celcius that is the ideal operating temperature for optimal performance and range.

    • Toby Jackson
      Toby Jackson

      @Michael Howell I'm not clear about that, but as I said they will still exist on the used market, just with increased tax. That's why I suggest the best option if you don't want a full EV is to go for something with as little emissions as possible to hopefully avoid the majority of this extra tax. I'd personally play it safe if I was you and go for something that plugs in, even if not fully electric. Lots of plug in hybrids or range extended EVs that have very little emissions as far as the paperwork is concerned, and while plugging in would be beneficial it isn't mandatory.

    • Michael Howell
      Michael Howell

      @Toby Jackson so anything hybrid or echo will still be allowed then

    • Toby Jackson
      Toby Jackson

      They are making the sales of new ICE Cars illegal. Existing cars will get increasing tax applied, so aim for one with as little emissions as possible. A PHEV Perhaps? Otherwise a small turbocharged engine like Ford's 1.0 3cyl Ecoboost?

    What a great test this was to see how these electric cars perform really enjoyed it,what it does do is make me realise how much I don’t need the hassle of owning one of these battery powered go carts. What people have not taken into account is if the car had 4 or 5 passengers in it and a boot full of luggage just how much these mileages will drop, I’ll give them a miss for the foreseeable future and stick to my diesel just to be sure I get to where I’m going, their great shopping trolleys though.

    Have you seen a home computer being used for mor than 5years ? The electric car irronically will be an envioramental disaster! People will change car more frecuently only to have better range, plastic parts will brake more easy and manufacturers will make cars that are allmost disposable like the smartphones they alredy sell now, but i know that this will fall in deaf ears because nobody can go against a tendency of "modernity" no matter how ilogical it is... Sad...

    just took a Model 3 Long Range from the greater Zurich area into the mountains of Grisons.. got only 155 miles from it and started at 100%.. granted, it was -9 degrees in Zurich and -15 degrees at the destination but that range figure was pathetic.. alright, the car had to climb 1300 m in elevation too, but that was stretched out over 20 miles.. not a great car to go skiing with.. you hear that Elon? don‘t make your cars for Cali only, Switzerland wants Teslas too that work all year for all purposes..

    The winner actually should be the Kia e Niro based on the efficacy of the car being able to achieve 90% of the claimed range the Tesla went the furthest because it had the bigger battery.but only achieved 78% of the claimed range. And boy do you pay for that bigger battery on the Tesla.

  • ToxicTommy

    Nobody drives a IC car like that. People will "fill 'er up" (call the equivalent to be a 95% charge) and then drive til it gets to about a quarter tank (call it 25% charge) then fill up again. A fill up from a quarter tank takes about 5 minutes if I don't do anything else at the C-store. How long does it take to charge a EV up from 25% charge to 95% charge.

  • lordoftheriffs79

    I appreciate the effort that has gone to this mega test, but I would most likely take into account the distance these cars went up to motorway exit for 2 reasons: First, in real life long distance driving, one would use the charging stations alongside the motorway, have a break, and continue, ideally with 20% battery remaining cause otherwise extreme battery strain ensues. Second and most important, with these ev cars, driving in circles at 10mph is WAY more efficient than steady motorway driving, exactly the opposite of IC cars. In fact if this test was done by driving at 10-30mph, they could have doubled the range the manufacturer claims. EV cars have the same at any engine speed, but obviously with increasing speed aero drag and rolling resistance increase, IC cars on the other hand have a sweet spot of 50-80 mph

    What lets these car down, and many others (excepting Tesla) is that the car manufacturers rely on third party electrical charge station suppliers leading to problems such as differing plug points, charging time, having to download apps. to use the charger, if you find a charger suitable for your car. Look at Tesla who have their own charge points over a growing number of places, simply scan your bank card and charge your car. Unless other manufacturers follow suit then Tesla will be the less hastle car to have in regard to charging your battery. Maybe manufacurers can emulate Tesla in uniformity of charging stations for charging any brand of vehicle ( petrol cars have a uniform petrol entry port enabling fills at any station irrespecrive of station owner) but don't hold your breath.
