Electric cars are very efficient when compared to ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) cars. Nevertheless, the efficiency and range varies a lot from EV to EV.

To help you choose which electric car is more suitable for you, I made the table below with EPA efficiency and range figures – for different driving scenarios (city, highway and mixed/combined).
