EV Range Test Roundup: How Far Can the Latest EVs Go?

2022 Audi e-tron

The Audi e-tron has been all over considering that 2019 and was a person of the very first EVs we assortment-tested (in Sportback form). Although it still athletics the very same dimensions battery (95 kilowatt-several hours), Audi created some components and application optimizations and elevated out there battery capacity from the 2021 model calendar year onward. As a end result, the EPA vary estimate has jumped from 204 miles to 222 miles, while the use estimate improved from 46 kilowatt-hrs for each 100 miles to 43 kWh for the exact length.

As equipped, the 2022 e-tron tipped our scales at 5,822 pounds.

After a complete day of driving at an average recorded temperature of 67 degrees, which is really gentle climate, the e-tron managed to travel 248 miles, which is a incredibly similar overall performance to the e-tron Sportback we examined two a long time in the past. This exceeds the 222-mile EPA array estimate by 26 miles or 11.7%. Our measured usage was also comparatively fantastic after charging the battery back again to entire. The 2022 e-tron desired only 38.4 kWh to go 100 miles, which is a 10.7% advancement over the approximated usage.
