When we talk about electric vehicles then the most important stat is range. Most EV range is the EPA combined range. If we talk about the numbers then in 2020, 33 EVs have EPA ratings. Several people think that the EPA range is enough but it’s not in electric vehicles EPA ranges are not enough in reality because on the highway this range is most important for electric vehicles. Electric vehicles are known for their energy-efficient quality, but if you ever drove an electric car on the highway then you noticed that your car’s power consumption never shows the actual performance like its official ratings.
Tesla also announced that model S is good to go with 400-mile EPA rated range with all the updates, but that announcement was not correct and they never made it official because of the mistake when tested by the environmental protection agency.
The ratings provided by EPA is different for electric cars on highway and city. The test was taken for an electric vehicle, they checked the electric vehicles by parking it overnight with a fully charged battery, and then the next day they drove it on the highway and city until the battery becomes low. The EPA range was introduced 350 miles for that car but it only gives 250 miles in reality after testing it was observed.
In highway driving the range is the most important point, if you are testing and want to cover around 600 miles in a day, then it should be done on high speeds, if we assume the shortest EV range then minimum it manages more than 6 hours on an average speed of around 20 mph. If we compare the electric cars with gas-or diesel-powered vehicles then gas vehicles it is always higher in EPA ratings then expected.EV has always become low in both combined figures and EPA highway.
Our comparing range numbers are maximum around 0 to 70 mph times. It is unachievable with the regularities. Because it includes the EV to be charged fully 100%, which is not in the norms of EV. RANGE is difficult to achieve and if you want an EV for highway and city both then you should consider it.
