How far can an Electric Vehicle go?

Many people worry about how far an electric car can go on one charge and whether this will suit their driving habits, this is known as 'range anxiety'.  As electric cars become more popular and improvements are made in the size and storage of batteries, this is becoming less of a worry for some.

 You can currently expect between 100 and 300 miles of range from a fully charged electric car, depending on the model. 

The new Volkswagen ID.3 range depends on the model and size of battery for example, a new ID.3 Pro Essential with a 58kWh battery can travel up to 270 miles*, while the new ID.3 Pro S Essential with a 77kWh model boasts a range of 356 miles*.

*All vehicles are tested according to WLTP technical procedures.
