It depends on the vehicle. Many new cars, including the Hyundai Kona Electric, Polestar 2 and Tesla Model 3, can travel in excess of 250 miles between charging stops. However, city-based electric cars, such as the Fiat 500, Mini Electric or Honda e, might only offer a range of around 100 miles.
The other component of long-distance touring is faster charging. The Highway Code advises a 15-minute break after two hours of driving – in an electric car, that time could be used for a top-up while you rest. Unlike a petrol or diesel car, you don’t need to wait with the vehicle while it’s filling up.
