We take EV testing seriously. Like you, we want to know how the range figures provided by the EPA and auto manufacturers match what happens in the real world. To find out, every electric car we evaluate undergoes a real-world range test. You can read more about the test and the results here: http://edmu.in/3sbI07M

After publishing our results, Tesla reached out. Tesla’s engineers argued that by not running the automaker's vehicles until they died, we were underestimating their true range. Even if we saw an indicated range of zero miles, there is a safety buffer that, when factored in, would see the car achieve the EPA rating.

In this video, we test that theory by driving a collection of EVs until they stop. We tested a Ford Mustang Mach-E, Volkswagen ID.4, Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus, Tesla Model 3 Long Range and a Tesla Model Y. Each manufacturer provided Edmunds with a vehicle for testing, but we also included the Edmunds-owned Model Y and Model 3 Standard Range Plus used in the original range test for good measure.

Can you trust the figures provided by manufacturers and the EPA? How much range should you expect from your electric vehicle? We answer these questions and a whole lot more in our very own electric vehicle range and consumption test.

What is EV range?
Range is the approximate number of miles that a vehicle can travel in combined city and highway driving (using a mix of 55% highway and 45% city driving) before needing to be recharged, according to the EPA's testing methodology.

What is EV consumption?
Consumption is similar to miles per gallon (mpg) for fuel-burning vehicles — it represents electric vehicles' energy consumption in kilowatt-hours per hundred miles (kWh/100 miles). Essentially, this value tells you how much energy in kilowatt-hours a vehicle would use to travel 100 miles. The lower the number, the better.
