Rating electric cars in reserve on a single charge

The rating of the electric range of run without additional charge, sold in the U.S. market. The criterion of the maximum reserve was the only class and the efficiency of electric cars were not considered.

Sometimes I think that "range" is not the main feature in favor of choosing an electric vehicle. However, people intending to buy a car, still considering the distance the vehicle can travel without recharging, a major, and often the only argument for or against the purchase.

The following table presents the electric cars sold in the United States. They are sorted according to the movement range on a full charge according to the American EPA cycle, which is all the more close to the real performance. Of course, there are many other factors that you need to look for when choosing a car. The reserve is just the starting point, but it can tell a lot about a particular model.

The table also shows the energy efficiency in kilowatts per 100 miles and in miles per gallon for a comparable gasoline car.

No one thinks about how many passes gasoline car on one filling – we just refuel at one of the masses existing gas stations. The infrastructure for charging electric vehicles is not so developed, therefore, the energy efficiency of Electric Hyundai Ioniq can be a key factor in the competition.

2017 Ford Focus Electric – 185 km

For the electric version of the Focus 2017 model year old Li-ion battery capacity of 23 kWh was replaced by a new liquid-cooled. The capacity increased to 33.5 kW*h Therefore, the increase amounted to 46%. As a result, the reserve of electric rose from approximately 122 km to 185 km. For this indicator, the Focus can compete with the Hyundai Ioniq Electric, Nissan Leaf and BMW i3.

The most popular electric car of all the "green" models of the BMW the new Assembly will be able to pass on a single charge, more than 180 km. Thus, compared with the previous version, the automaker has increased the autonomy of the machine by 50 percent.

2017 Nissan Leaf is 172 km.

The latest model of the "Bodice" is equipped with a battery pack with a capacity of 30 kWh, but in the version with a battery of 24 kWh. optimization of the new battery allowed to leave its size unchanged, when increase in mass of 21 kg. According to the manufacturer, the warranty on battery is 8 years or 160 thousand kilometers. It is expected that the next-generation 2018 Nissan Leaf will receive a power reserve of at least 300 km.

2017 Mitsubishi i-MiEV – 59 miles

Hard to believe that this electric car is still relevant. published
