• Charge of the Electric Brigade: Top 10 EVs with the Longest Range [TFLnow Live]

    Recently, Tesla broke the news that pay-per-use of their Supercharger network is about to get more expensive

    If you’re a Tesla owner and make some use of the company’s Supercharger network, you’re about to shell out a bit more money to charge your car. Tesla recently updating their charging rates across their network, comprising 1,180 stations and nearly 9,000 Superchargers. Some areas, such as Oregon, saw their rates double (from $0.12 to $0.24/kWh). That’s a substantial increase, but most areas received a 20 to 40 percent rate hike.

    Why is that happening? Tesla commented that the rates vary depending on local electricity rates and usage. However, that money is also going toward expanding the Supercharger network even further. The company did add that it will never be a “profit center”. Even with the rate hike, charging a Tesla is still significantly cheaper than filling it with gasoline. However, any added price does affect how much you can offset the price of the car with cheap electricity. Prices will likely continue to increase in the future, so long as the stations are tied to local power grids, with their rates fluctuating accordingly.

    Just how far can some cars go on a charge? These are the Top 10 EVs with the longest range currently for sale

    When the news broke that Tesla was raising their Supercharger prices, that got us thinking: which cars eke the most out of each battery charge? In today’s TFLnow Live show (above), we count down ten cars that give you the most range for each trip to the plug. Check out the list below for the Top 10 EVs with the longest range.

    1. Tesla is the only one with performance electric cars and a charging grid. They are the only company to bring a true relevance to the electric car. Even if the electricity is expensive you have more benefits such as lower center of gravity, greater safety, no smells, able to freely accelerate as you wish without stinking the public out around you, quiet, less smog, better for environment, quicker car, more responsive, no oil changes, heats up in the morning in quiet under house electricity to a set temperature, no coolant flushes, no tranny flushes, no brakes to fix, no emissions testing, no exhaust to fix, true innovation instead of buying prehistoric cars from the same tool and dies built in the 50’s, better autonomy, better balanced front to back, cheaper to own, more responsive, no low hanging differentials for better ground clearance, smoother flat floors and underside of car is smooth with no catch points for getting stuck and hung up and it adds easier and better protection against infiltration of salt water over frames and every exposed part on a traditional vehicle that rusts and degrades into a repair. No engine and tranny sensors to deal with by the 100’s and if you charge at home you may never need to stop at a station ever again for a fill up.

    2. Even with the added initial cost of electric power trains, the entire cost of pollution is still not internalized at the time of purchase. The mining of metals pollutes, electrical generation still pollutes, battery disposal still has environmental concerns.
