Summer trips are best made in electric cars. They are easier to drive, do not cost a lot to charge, and stand less chance of breaking down on the road. However, if you plan to take your electric vehicle for summer trips, it is crucial to purchase an appropriate model that suits your needs.
Two things you should look out for are extended driving range and speed of charging. These two features are essential to reduce the possibility of recharging the battery during your trip and cutting the time taken when you have to stop to charge.
Here, we have gathered the ten best electric cars for summer travel.
Lucid Air Dream Edition
This EV wears the crown of the most extended range, at 520 miles per charge. You can confidently embark on your summer trip in this EV. However, the range is not the only attraction with this sedan as it charges fast and is made with luxury in mind.
Tesla Model S
The Model S’ 375 miles is still plenty enough for your summer travel. Acceleration is fast in this EV, and you get access to Tesla’s extensive Supercharger network.
Here is another sedan with driving stamina. You will cover 350 miles in this aerodynamically efficient flagship car. You will also enjoy the huge side-to-side Hyperscreen, which gives you access to three different screen areas. Other perks include the door closing automatically when you sit in the car and rear-wheel steering.
Tesla Model S Plaid
This Tesla sacrificed a bit of range for performance, but you can rely on the 345 miles EPA-approved range on your summer trips. If you are a speed fanatic and find a safe stretch of the road, you can attain 200 mph in this quiet beast.
Tesla Model 3 Long Range
You knew there would be another Tesla on this list. Take the Model 3 Long Range on your summer trip, and you can go about 334 miles between charges.
Skoda Enyaq 80 iV
The last EV on our last quietly delivers 333 miles per charge. Interestingly, the Enyaq 80 iV shares an electric platform with the Volkswagen ID.4
Tesla Model X
Here is one more Tesla. The Model X does 332 miles between charges, eliminating range anxiety during your summer trip.
Ford Mustang Mach-E
The Extended Range version of this EV lasts up to 305 miles, meaning you won’t need to be rushing toward the next public charger on your summer travels.
BMW iX xDrive50
Gone are the days BMW release an EV with less than 200 miles range, as this SUV will last 300 miles before you need to charge it, thanks to a 100 kWh battery pack.
This is the second BMW on the list. The i4 is a four-door Gran Coupe that can seat five. It is on this list because it lasts 300 miles per charge. It is fast as well, as you can do 0 to 60 mph in four seconds.
