The range of electric cars keeps increasing and allows most drivers to use their vehicle on a daily basis without having to charge on the go. The latest generation of electric cars offers an actual range between 300 and 500 km.
The range of an electric vehicle depends on the model. The range is specified by the manufacturer based on the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure standard (WLTP). This is a new measurement procedure for cars. It was created to provide a more realistic picture of actual fuel consumption. In practice, the actual range depends heavily on a number of factors, such as your personal driving style, the weather conditions and whether you drive on the motorway a lot.
Charging networks are also rapidly expanding, and the charging technology keeps improving significantly. This means that the range keeps going up and charging times keep going down. Consequently, there is no reason to be afraid that you will not reach your destination (so-called range anxiety).
