The 10 Electric Cars With The Longest Range In Canada

The biggest consideration for most consumers when it comes to electric cars is range.

Given that you can’t just stop by a gas station to fill up your vehicle and be on your way, how far you can travel on your EV’s battery has major implications.

The longer the range, the further you can go and more importantly the less you have to worry about getting where you’re going or getting back. Many buyers have resisted electric cars because of range anxiety, but thankfully automakers are progressively increasing the range offered on their new EVs.

Here’s a look at the 10 electric cars by order of range currently offered in Canada.

1) Tesla Model S – 416 to 539 kilometers

A few notes are needed here. For one, the Kia Soul EV will completely change next year and will offer over 450 kilometers of range according to early reports. You should also take into account availability. The Volkswagen e-golf, for example, has a long waiting period that can exceed 6 months. Same goes for the Tesla Model 3 with the smaller battery and more affordable price tag.
