Electric car: These seven e-cars are already suitable for long-distance journeys

The electric range always plays a role when someone wants to cover long distances in one go with their electric car. But is that all? A huge battery, from which you can get many kilometers, is of little use if the car has to be at the charging station for a long time. So what about loading speed? How many kilometers can current e-cars “refuel” in what time?

In addition, the manufacturers specify the ranges of their vehicles according to the WLTP cycle. Better than NEDC, but the test still takes place under laboratory conditions. AUTO BILD tests the energy consumption on the road, regardless of the drive concept. The realistic test range is calculated from the test consumption, i.e. the number of kilometers that are actually in the tank or battery.

What is the real range of e-cars?

1. Audi e-tron GT quattro

When it comes to charging, the e-tron GT quattro is also pretty lonely at its best: in 30 minutes, it pumps electricity into the battery for 325 km. This corresponds to a filling level of 87 percent. In 10 minutes it can be ready 184 km, in 20 minutes 296 km. Only: The brother of the Porsche Taycan is also at the forefront when it comes to price, the basic version costs 101,600 euros.

2. Audi e-tron 55 quattro

AUDI e-tron Sportback 55 Quattro

To put it bluntly, the Audi e-tron 55 quattro is an electric Q7. It offers a lot of space and equipment.

The 408 hp of the e-tron 55 quattro version energetically attack all four wheels. 660 to 1725 liters of luggage fit in the trunk, equipment is available in abundance on request.

The Audi charges a range of more than 300 kilometers in 30 minutes

The range according to the WLTP standard is specified by the manufacturer as 436 kilometers. In 2019, on the AUTO BILD test track, the Audi consumed 32.7 kWh of electricity. This results in a road range of 290 kilometers.
According to ADAC, the Audi can charge a maximum of 150 kW in ten minutes for a range of 113 kilometers. In 20 minutes he covers 216 kilometers, in half an hour he reaches an additional 305 kilometers. Prices start at 81,500 euros.

3. Hyundai Ioniq 5

Hyundai Ioniq 5 4WD

With the Ioniq 5, Hyundai has created an exciting car with qualities and great details.

The Korean crossover comfortably seats four passengers. This is not least due to the airy design of the interior. Technology fans should be happy about details such as the optional solar cells in the roof.

264 kilometers range on the road for the Hyundai

With a length of 4.64 meters, the Korean is also not a small car. A 58 kWh battery with a range of just under 400 kilometers and a battery with a capacity of 72.6 kilowatt hours are available. In the test at AUTO BILD, an Ioniq 5 with a 72.6 kWh battery and all-wheel drive consumed 27.4 kWh of electricity. This results in a realistic range of 264 kilometers (WLTP value: 430 km).
According to the ADAC, the Ioniq 5 charges enough electricity for a range of 183 kilometers in ten minutes with a maximum of 220 kW. In 20 minutes it is energy for 307, in half an hour for 351 kilometers. Price: from 41,900 euros.

4.Peugeot e-208 GT

The Peugeot charges electricity for 205 kilometers in 30 minutes

Peugeot puts the range determined by WLTP at 362 kilometers. But this number melts away when you tease out the full power of the electric motor. In a test by AUTO BILD, a technically largely identical Opel Corsa-e consumed 18.3 kWh. Assuming that, the Opel has a range of 273 kilometers on the road.
Peugeot e-208

The Peugeot e-208 convinces that it hardly differs from its combustion engine siblings.

When checking the charging capacity, the ADAC found out that the e-208 charges electricity for 85 kilometers in ten minutes. He needs 20 minutes for 157 kilometers and half an hour for 205 kilometers. The French charge with a maximum of 100 kW. Prices start at 31,950 euros for the Peugeot e-208 Active.

5. Porsche Taycan 4S

Porsche Taycan 4S

The Porsche Taycan 4S is a fascinating car that draws a lot of attention. It shows itself to be a real Porsche.

Of the specified range of 407 kilometers, around 330 kilometers have proven to be realistic in everyday use. The handling is typical of Porsche: agile, grippy, precise and damn fast. The Taycan can do this comfortably. In the consumption round in the AUTO BILD test, a Taycan Turbo S consumed 29.4 kWh of energy. This results in a range of 285 kilometers.
The ADAC has measured that the Porsche needs ten minutes to charge electricity for 203 kilometers. In 20 minutes it draws enough energy for 310 additional kilometers, in half an hour it is 345. The Taycan currently charges with a maximum of 270 kW. Price: from 106,487 euros.
VW ID. 4

The VW ID.4 is a decent Trumm car. Despite its size, it is pleasingly practical.

6. VW ID. 4

Electricity for a range of 254 kilometers in 30 minutes

The 52 kWh battery of this ID.4 should have a range of up to 346 kilometers. In the AUTO BILD test, an ID.4 with rear-wheel drive and a 77-kWh battery consumed 21.5 kWh. That stands for a realistic range of 358 kilometers. The ADAC states that an ID.4 can charge electricity for 105 kilometers in ten minutes. In 20 minutes there is energy for 190 kilometers, in half an hour juice for 254. Depending on the battery, the ID.4 charges with 50 to 132 kW.

7. Kia EV 6

At 4.68 meters in length, the EV6 is most likely a higher Shooting Brake, i.e. a chic station wagon. And it can drive – in different variants: with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, with a 58 or 77.4 kWh battery, with an output of 170 to 585 hp. At least 44,990 euros must be invested for the base (before deduction of the environmental bonus).
In a test by AUTO BILD, a Kia EV6 AWD consumed 27.2 kWh on the consumption route. This results in an everyday range of 285 km. The ADAC measured the charging speed of a Kia EV6 RWD with 229 hp and came up with the following values: The Korean can charge a range of 83 kilometers in ten minutes, 250 kilometers in 20 minutes and 385 kilometers in 30 minutes.
