What's the Longest Battery Life on an Electric Car?

Find out which are the 10 electric cars with the longest range and battery life in the US market, from Tesla Model S to GMC Hummer EV.

What's the Longest Battery Life on an Electric Car?

The 10 electric cars with the longest range are the Tesla Model S with dual motor, all-wheel drive (405 miles), Hyundai Ioniq 6 (382 miles), and Tesla Model 3 (374 miles). According to current estimates, most electric car batteries will last between 15 and 20 years before they need to be replaced. This means that the battery of your electric vehicle will likely last longer than your car. The Mercedes-Benz EQS sedan is a luxurious electric car that comes in three configurations: EQS450+ with rear-wheel drive, EQS450 4Matic, and EQS580 4Matic.

The EQS450+ has the best range of 350 miles, while the 516 hp EQS580 4Matic offers 340 miles of range. The Tesla Model X is a mix between a crossover and a van. It accelerates to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and has a trimotor plaid that reduces this time to 2.5 seconds. The GMC Hummer EV pickup truck is an eco-friendly electric vehicle with three electric motors connected to GM's gigantic 212.7 kWh Ultium battery pack.

It has 1000 horsepower and a range of 329 miles according to GMC estimates. The BMW iX xDrive50 is powered by two electric motors with a combined power of 516 horsepower. It has a standard Polestar 2 range and a battery capacity that rivals Tesla models. Electric car batteries are designed to last around eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

They also have a battery management system (BMS) that prevents battery degradation. This list of the highest-range electric cars is limited to the new models sold in the United States, ranked according to their combined EPA driving range, from shortest to longest.
