Disclaimer: Data on this page is compiled from manufacturers' data and fueleconomy.gov and is for general informational purposes only. Data for vehicles labeled "coming soon" are estimates based on early reports and are not to be viewed as official. All prices, technical data points and features and figures may vary based on model year and trim level. Please visit the specific manufacturer websites or ask your dealer for the latest information about each vehicle.

Notes:

EV Range is the approximate distance that can be travelled on a fully charged battery using electricity only. Range can vary greatly depending on driving and environmental conditions.

Total Range is the approximate total electric and gas range of the vehicle. Range can vary greatly depending on driving and environmental conditions.

Combined MPGe represents the number of miles the vehicle can travel using a quantity of fuel with the same energy content as a gallon of gasoline. This allows a reasonable comparison between vehicles using different fuels. For example, you can use MPGe to compare an electric vehicle with a gasoline vehicle; even though electricity used is obviously not measured in actual gallons.

Battery Size or capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, like your home electricity use. Battery size is your electric vehicle's gas tank. This number can be used for comparison with other electric vehicles. Fuel Cell Vehicles only contain a small onboard battery, their range is dependent on the size of the fuel cell stack and hydrogen tank capacity.

Charge Time indicates how long it takes to charge a fully empty battery using 240 volt electrical service (Level 2 charging). Use of lower voltage than that specified on the label, such as plugging into a standard 120v wall outlet, will result in longer charging times. The vehicle manufacturer should be able to provide complete information on charging times and the capabilities of their vehicles.
