When making a decision to buy an electric car people look at its price, driving range, efficiency, performance, safety. A price/range ratio is crucial for choice too. Experts ranked the best EVs of the 2019 model year with the longest operating range for the money.
InsideEVs journalists picked affordable new electric vehicles taking into account their cost-to-range ratio. They divided each model’s US base manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) by the distance (number of miles) it’s rated to run on a single battery charge (until full recharging).
The results see in the table below:
|Pos||Model||Range, miles||Range, km||MSRP, $||Cost-to-range score|
|1||Tesla Model 3 Long-Range||325||523||43,000||132|
|2||Hyundai Kona Electric||258||415||36,450||141|
|3||Kia Niro Electric||239||385||36,600||153|
|5||Tesla Model 3 Standard||220||354||35,000||159|
|6||Nissan Leaf Plus||226||364||37,000||164|
So, the longest range electric car for the money with the lowest cost-to-range value is the Tesla Model 3.
