Top 10 EVs With The Longest Range In 2022

Top 10 EVs With The Longest Range In 2022

Here’s a list of the top 10 electric cars that offer the longest range in the U.S.

EVs have dawned upon us and have become competent mainstream alternatives to cars with internal combustion engines in the last few years. While their performance was never in doubt, available range has led to some pretty extreme anxiety. The range was one of the major reasons why most folks were skeptical about switching to green cars. But, things are quite different now. Technology is getting better every single day and automakers are able to improve the range of cars like never before. Gone are the days when achieving even 400 miles of range was a distant dream. Today, cars like Lucid Air offer more than 500 miles of range and Tesla more than 400 miles. Concept cars like the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX claim to offer over 600 miles of range. It won’t be too long before that becomes a reality, too. For now, here is a list of EVs that offer the best range in 2022.

Watch the BMW X7, the iX, and the AMG G63 engage in a few rounds of tug-of-war

The ‘Carwow’ team, spearheaded by Mat Watson, staged a tug-of-war between three SUVs that belong to different segments. One is a new EV, the other, its sibling, a luxurious family SUV, and the final one, an iconic off-roader. We are talking about the BMW iX, the BMW X7, and the Mercedes-AMG G63. Since this is a tug-of-war, you’d expect the G63 to be the winner, since it comes with a lot of tech and equipment that has to do with traction and stability. But, is that really the case?

The Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV Debuts With A 373-Mile Range, A 56-inch Hyperscreen, And 500+ Horsepower AWD Version!

Mercedes-Benz might have ticked all the boxes with the SUV version of the EQS sedan

Mercedes-Benz has taken to electrification like no other automaker. Audi comes a close second, but Mercedes is operating on a whole different level. The German marque has made sure it has offerings in every mass-market segment in the shortest time possible. Sometime last year, the automaker revealed five new vehicles in one auto show – the EQE sedan, the EQB crossover, the EQG Concept, the Maybach EQS SUV, and the AMG EQS. Then Mercedes followed it up with the Vision EQXX Concept and the AMG EQE

Without taking a break whatsoever, the automaker has now come up with the EQS SUV (the non-Maybach version). As the name suggests, it is the SUV version of the EQS sedan. It shares the same wheelbase, but is more spacious and comes with better cargo capacity. It will be offered in two trims – 450+ and 580 4MATIC – the latter being a 536-horsepower, all-wheel-drive version. With a range of up to 373 miles and a 56-inch Hyperscreen on offer, the Mercedes EQS might be an electric SUV that you can’t ignore!

Mercedes Executive Fears EVs Could Remain Expensive For the Foreseeable Future

Mercedes Executive Fears EVs Could Remain Expensive For the Foreseeable Future

Supply and demand will play a huge factor in the consumer cost of EVs, but when will they catch up to mainstream cars?

It’s no secret that you have to pay for the latest and greatest technology, but over time, the latest and greatest becomes cheaper as it becomes more readily available. As the tech spreads across the global market, the cost of material and manufacturing begins to lower, and that reduction in cost ultimately passes down to consumers like you and I. This is already happening with electric vehicles to some extent with cars like the Nissan Leaf – a car that was once quite pricey – now available for less than $30,000 in some markets, which makes it the cheapest EV that you can buy today.

Mercedes Sets Its Sights on Organic Battery Technology

Mercedes Sets Its Sights on Organic Battery Technology

The battery is 100-percent recyclable, but is still almost two decades away from becoming mainstream

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has wondered that the EVs may be environment-friendly, but are lithium-ion batteries contributing positively to the same cause? Although these batteries are recyclable, lithium is a highly reactive element and can have adverse effects on the environment and our health if not discarded properly.

But it looks like Mercedes-Benz has come up with a solution to work around this. The German automaker is working on building organic batteries and that could be a perfect alternative to lithium-ion batteries. However, the automaker says that the technology is still 15-20 years away from becoming mainstream.

2022 Mercedes EQ B

The electric Mercedes GLB takes one step closer to its live introduction

Mercedes’ lineup of electric crossovers and SUVs continues to take shape with a fresh batch of spy photos of a model that looks a lot like the Mercedes GLB-Class. Except this isn’t the GLB; this is the GLB’s all-electric alter ego, the EQ B. The spy photos were taken in Sweden where the EQ B is undergoing winter testing. Mercedes hasn’t divulged the juicy details of the EQ B, but it is believed that, among other things, it will largely take the form of the GLB, albeit with a few minor tweaks to reflect is all-electric stature. No timetable has been given on when the Mercedes EQ B will launch, but we do know that the all-electric crossover will not hit the U.S. market until 2021.

Why the Mercedes EQA EV Won't Be a Hatchback

Why the Mercedes EQA EV Won’t Be a Hatchback

The EQA would be cool as a hatchback, but it would come with a major compromise that just isn’t acceptable
It’s a small crossover based on the 2021 Mercedes GLA Battery placement in the floor Could still take cues from EQA Concept Should go on sale sometime in late-2020 249-mile range, 60 kWh battery

Mercedes has finally unveiled the new GLA, and during the presentation, we were treated to a teaser of the Mercedes EQA EV – a model once believed to be an entry-level hatchback. The image was clear enough that we can confirm the EQA will, in fact, be a very small crossover, one that we’ve seen in the prototype form in the past. This raises a big question, though. Why isn’t the production version of the Mercedes EQA going to take after the Concept EQA that was shown off by Mercedes back in 2017, and what happened to the hatchback body style?

Mercedes-Benz Doesn’t Want EQC Customers to Be Couch Potatoes

There’s a slurry of lifestyle accessories available for the new EQC

Thanks to an 80-kWh battery pack that sends power down to a pair of asynchronous electric motors, the Mercedes-Benz EQC can travel for 445 to 471 kilometers ( 276 to 292 miles) on a single full charge. We’re telling you this because Mercedes-Benz’s latest bundle of lifestyle accessories for the EQC was coined with this particular feature in mind.

The Germans are sure that those who have decided to own an EQC won’t stick to the daily work-home-supermarket urban routine and will want to drive way from the city on weekends or holidays. So, in a way, the accessories Mercedes-Benz has just dropped are aimed at road-trippers first and foremost. Let’s check it out.

The 2020 Mercedes EQV Is the First Electric Luxury MPV, but Is It More than a V-Class with a Heart of Lithium?

Mercedes EQV has a 405-km (251 miles) range and can carry up to eight people

Electrification has caught up with one of Mercedes’ largest passenger car offerings, its V-Class people carrier. What you’re looking at here is called the EQV and according to Mercedes, it is the only vehicle of its type currently available on the market.

It’s not Mercedes’ first commercial-type vehicle that has gone all-electric, as it follows in the footsteps of the eVito and eSprinter models. But unlike those models which are not especially luxurious or sport a premium feeling, the EQV has a more posh vibe about it (and a lot more range than either of them).
