The comparison of an electric car’s base price (MSRP + destination charge) with EPA range reveals to us which models are the most affordable per mile of range.
Of course, it’s just a brief comparison, because often the prices can be much lower than MSRP, but at least we can get some glimpses.
With a price of $48,190 and range of 353 miles (568 km) – up 31 miles (50 km) or 9.6%, the best score is $137 per mile of range (it was previously $150).
Chevrolet Bolt EV 2020
Hyundai Kona Electric
Without change, the next two are Chevrolet Bolt EV ($145) and Hyundai Kona Electric ($149 / $119 after including federal tax credit). The updated Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus (18″) now matched Hyundai and is also at $149.
We guess that within a few years we will see a price per mile range below $100, especially since Tesla already announced a 30% range improvement possible, without new chemistry.
