Electric cars: their real autonomy to the test

Here is a selection of the electric cars that offer the best real range, according to European automobile clubs TCS and NAF.

A reference club for mobility in Switzerland, the Touring Club Suisse (TCS) has joined forces with the Norwegian automobile club NAF to carry out a major test of the real autonomy, consumption and charging times of 31 electric car models. These different criteria are essential for a car to be suitable for everyday life as well as for longer trips.

Ce autonomy test realistically reproduces an interurban journey, and is a complement to WLTP, RDE-TCS and GreenNCAP consumption tests. The 31 cars tested all traveled the same route, under the same conditions.

Electric cars: the models with the greatest real autonomy

According to TCS tests, the models that have the greatest autonomy are the following :

  • Mercedes-Benz EQS 450+: 620 km of autonomy
  • Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 4MATIC : 596 km d’autonomie
  • BMW i4 eDrive40 : 584 km d’autonomie
  • BMW iX xDrive50: 569 km of autonomy
  • Tesla Model Y Long Autonomy Dual Motor: 545 km of autonomy

However, the Swiss organization points to actual values ​​that have proven to be lower than those of the WLTP certification value. At the other end of the ranking, here are the five electric cars with the lowest range :

  • Hongqi EHS-9: 371 km autonomy
  • Cupra Born : 376 km of autonomy
  • Maxus Euniq 6 : 388.4 km of autonomy
  • BMW iX xDrive40: 399.4 km range
  • Porsche Taycan 4 Cross Touring : 403 km

Electric cars: the models that consume the least

According to TCS testing, here are the five electric cars that consume the least :

  • Tesla Model Y Grande Autonomie Dual Motor: 13.8 kWh/100 km
  • Hyundai Ioniq 5 RWD : 14,7 kWh/100 km
  • BMW i4 eDrive40: 14.8 kWh/100 km
  • Cupra Burns : 14.8 kWh/100 km
  • MG ZS Long Range : 14,9 kWh/100 km

The Tesla Model Y and the BMW i4 eDrive40 are distinguished by their long range, energy efficiency and low consumption.

Electric cars: the models that charge the fastest

For long journeys, the power and speed of recharging are essential assets to shorten the downtime required for recharging. The TCS analyzed the time it takes on each model to go from 10% to 80% battery capacity, and based on this established a classification of autonomy recovered per hour, for each model:

  • Kia EV6 RWD: 972 km recovered/hour
  • Mercedes-Benz EQB 350 4MATIC: 969 km recovered/hour
  • Porsche Taycan 4 Cross Turismo: 930 km recovered/hour
  • Hyundai Ioniq 5 RWD: 894 km recovered/hour
  • Kia EV6 4WD: 880 km recovered/hour
