The driving range of electric vehicles (EVs) plays a vital role in their adoption by consumers. The global automaker rating 2022 by the ICCT, available in our database, highlights that longer driving ranges expand vehicle functionality and minimize range anxiety, making EVs more convenient. In fact, research suggests that consumers are less likely to switch to EVs if they have shorter ranges.

>> To emphasize the significance of driving range, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has set minimum range requirements for EVs to count towards zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) targets.

>> While longer driving ranges are preferred by consumers, they come with financial and environmental costs. Larger batteries and increased vehicle weight lead to higher energy consumption, recharging costs, and greenhouse gas emissions.

>> The study analyzed driving range data from 20 manufacturers, with Tesla leading the pack at an average of 503 km. Ford closely followed with an average range of 488 km, driven by the success of its Mustang Mach-E model.

>> Manufacturers offering strong-selling models with substantial average driving ranges, such as Hyundai-Kia, VW, and Mercedes-Benz, are well-positioned for the ZEV transition. However, manufacturers targeting shorter-range EVs, like SAIC, serve a specific market segment and aim to provide affordable options for daily commuters.

>> While there are limitations to the average driving range metric, it remains crucial in attracting a wide consumer base. To drive greater market growth and reach a wider range of consumers, longer-range EVs are necessary for a complete transition to zero-emission vehicles.
