Electric car range and efficiency table (NEDC)

Now you can easily compare range and efficiency of many electric cars popular in Europe.

 

After the success of the Electric car range and efficiency (EPA) table, it’s now time to have a NEDC version.

However, take notice that NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) rates aren’t realistic, unfortunately we only have EPA rates for electric cars sold in the USA. The good news is that NEDC will be soon replaced by WLTP (Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure).

 

Without further ado here is the table:

Remember that like EPA, NEDC figures also measure plug-to-wheels consumption, this means that the internal charger efficiency matters.

 

It was a pain in the ass to find some figures and some are still missing (Tesla efficiency). Nevertheless, I like the final result and think that this table can help potential electric car buyers in Europe decide which one to get. However, if the electric car you want has EPA rates available, look at those instead.

You can find every available comparison table at the top menu navigation bar. I’ll not only keep them updated but also add more categories. At the moment I’m thinking of comparing sales and prices of electric cars in different countries.

 

Any suggestions, let me know!

    More interesting is to compare the epa highway consumption rating. Which is where range and efficiency is important. There you can see that the ioniq stands out, the egolf is pretty good actually and the Tesla model s is really good for being such a big car!

    Great table! Very interesting!
    Where did you take official NEDC data on range and global efficiency?
    Thanks!
    Lorenzo

  3. Lorenzo says:

    Thanks Pedro!
    I did not understand what is the official website that collects all NEDC data… If I want to see EPA data, I can navigate http://www.fueleconomy.gov and find – for each car – total range (in miles) and energy consumption (in MPGe).
    What website should I see for NEDC data?

    • Pedro Lima says:

      In this case the official sources are the automakers’ websites. Unfortunately there isn’t one independent source that collects all NEDC data.

  4. Sanketh says:

    Hello Pedro Lima, Thank You for the information provided. May I know if the Energy consumption also includes the energy generated due to regenerative braking in NEDC cycle?

    • Pedro Lima says:

      Hello Sanketh.

      The energy consumption is measured at the plug, this means that is measured after the regenerative braking was used and also takes into account the internal charger’s efficiency.

  5. Knut says:

    Be aware that differences may be much larger between NEDC than actual range than you think. I.e. Bolt (Opel Ampera-e) differs a lot when you use heating or cooling. In Renault Zoe they have installed a heating pump, which when used – does not influence the range very much. Smart!

  6. Evarista says:

    Could you please share the references for the offcial sources? Specifically for the Renault Zoe, the Nissan Leaf and the Tesla model X or S. Thank you.
