Here are 2022's top 7 EVs with the longest range
Electric vehicles seem to be the future of driving, and they keep getting more and more important as we fail to put up a strong fight against climate change. Electric vehicles have performance, and they are environmentally friendly, but they still have one major problem; the range anxiety.
Electric vehicles have a limited range, and there are still not sufficient amount of charging stations globally.
Another issue with electric vehicles is charging durations. The average charging time of electric vehicles varies between 7 to 12 hours.
The long charging time and limited range of electric vehicles put pressure on the driver, as electric cars usually have a range of 300 miles (480 km).

7- Tesla Model Y Long Range AWD
Tesla’s Model Y is a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive mid-size SUV with a range of 330 miles (531 km). Even though Tesla increased Model Y’s price, it had little to no effect on buyers, as the Model Y deliveries for new orders are recently pushed to a timeframe between January 2023 and April 2023.

German carmaker Mercedes has a deeply impressive maximum range of 441 miles (679 km) on a single charge, according to the results of a real-world range test, in the EQS 450+ model. The vehicle features a 107.8 kWh lithium-ion battery,
