Electric vehicles make up a small percentage of the total automotive market today, but their appeal continues to grow as the automakers expand their range, performance, and style—and as recharging becomes quicker and easier. Shoppers looking for zero-emissions driving now have an expansive list of vehicles to choose from, with a wide variety of body styles and several different price points. To make it easy on you, we've compiled them all in one place and listed them in order of their combined MPGe ratings from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We've also included each one's city and highway figures, too, for good measure. MPGe is a calculation of an electric vehicle's efficiency, much like the miles-per-gallon rating of any conventional gas- or diesel-powered car, truck, or SUV. But a higher MPGe rating doesn't always equate to a class-leading range figure. We've provided both of these numbers so you can choose the best EV for your family, lifestyle, and driving habits. Please note that this list includes only those EVs that draw their power from the country's electrical power grid, which means it won't have the market's fuel-cell cars that propel themselves with electricity but are fueled by hydrogen.
GMC Hummer EV — 47 MPGe
Due to its status as a heavy-duty vehicle by the EPA, the all-wheel-drive GMC Hummer EV goes without the typical fuel economy equivalency and range ratings the government pins on electric vehicles sold in the U.S. Still, documents GMC submitted to the EPA include this information for the $112,595 tri-motor Hummer EV Edition 1.

Ford F-150 Lightning — 70 MPGe
The gasoline-powered F-series pickup truck is already the bestselling vehicle in America on a regular basis; Ford moved 653,957 F-series models in 2022. The F-150 Lightning is the electric-only option in the lineup, and it has proved itself worthy of its place in the Ford showroom with quick acceleration, a host of convenience features, and up to 10,000 pounds of towing capacity. Depending on the model, drivers can expect between 230 and 320 miles of driving range, although towing tasks tend to reduce that estimation considerably. Still, with a 70 MPGe combined rating from the EPA, the Lightning is far more efficient than its chief rival, the GMC Hummer EV.

Rivian R1S — 71 MPGe
Although there are a number of electric SUVs on sale today, there are only a few such models available with three rows of seating. Rivian, however, adds another option to the mix by way of its R1S. No, it's not quite as efficient as, say, the Tesla Model X, but with a starting sum just a little south of $80,000, the R1S undercuts the base price of the big Tesla SUV by approximately $30,000. Plus, thanks to the R1S's large 135.0-kWh battery pack, this SUV is capable of traveling an EPA-rated 321 miles on a full charge.
- Base price: $79,800*
- EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 71/75/66 MPGe
- EPA combined range: 321 miles
Rivian R1T — 73 MPGe
Complementing Rivian's R1S SUV is the company's R1T pickup truck. Like its SUV counterpart, the R1T comes standard with a 135.0-kWh battery pack. A larger capacity 180.0-kWh battery pack is due in the near term and is expected to push the truck's range past 400 miles. As it stands, the R1T manages a respectable 328 miles of driving range on a full charge.

Audi e-tron Sportback — 78 MPGe
The Audi e-tron Sportback is a sharper version of the e-tron SUV. The five-passenger two-row electric SUV is heavyset, hitting the scales at 5819 pounds, almost 100 pounds heavier than our long-term Ram 1500. Despite this, it's still quicker than the big half-ton truck. A 5.1-second zero-to-60 time is possible courtesy of the peak 402 horsepower the e-tron Sportback's two motors (one at each axle) produce. Those in need of extra oomph, albeit at the cost of range and efficiency, can also nab the sportback in sporty S guise. Much of the Audi's heft can be attributed to its 95.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The e-tron Sportback's EPA estimates are slightly worse than those of the standard version, with an estimated range of 225 miles on a full charge.
- Base price: $75,195
- EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 78/77/80 MPGe
- EPA combined range: 225 miles
Audi e-tron — 79 MPGe
Audi's all-wheel-drive e-tron SUV is also available in a boxier form for those looking for additional cargo space. A sizable 95.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack and two electric motors (one at each axle) generate a peak of 402 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque. Unfortunately, the Audi's 226 miles of range isn't that impressive. That said, the e-tron hits 60 mph in a claimed 5.5 seconds, so it's at least rather quick. An even more powerful 496-hp e-tron S is also available, however, it manages a mere 73 MPGe combined and offers just 208 miles of EPA-rated range.

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo — 80 MPGe (tie)
Porsche's Taycan EV line now includes a wagon body style with an off-tarmac twist. Dubbed the Taycan Cross Turismo, the off-road-oriented wagon benefits from a raised ride height, additional body cladding, and standard dual-motor all-wheel drive. Likewise, the Taycan Cross Turismo forgoes the sedan's base 79.2-kWh battery pack. Instead, the wagon comes exclusively with the larger capacity 93.4-kWh unit. As a result, the entry-level Taycan 4 Cross Turismo offers an EPA-rated 235 miles of range—27 more than the more energy-efficient base Taycan sedan. While the Taycan 4 Cross Turismo's peak 469-hp ought to be plenty for most buyers, the model is also available in more powerful 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S trims, each of which makes a peak of 562, 670, and 750 horsepower, respectively.

Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo — 80 MPGe (tie)
Want the utility of the Taycan Cross Turismo minus the SUV-like body cladding? Then the Taycan Sport Turismo is the electric Porsche for you. Offered strictly in 590-hp GTS guise, the $137,450 Taycan Sport Turismo is arguably the best-looking (in our opinion at least) Taycan wagon trim. Its 80 MPGe combined nets the Sport Turismo an EPA-rated range of 233 miles.

Audi e-tron GT — 82 MPGe
Audi's take on the Porsche Taycan bears the name e-tron GT. Sharing its key mechanical bits with Porsche's electric sedan, the e-tron GT wears distinct bodywork and interior decor. Two flavors of Audi's low-slung EV are available: standard e-tron GT and rowdy RS e-tron GT. Both come exclusively with all-wheel drive, courtesy of an electric motor at each axle, and a 93.4-kWh battery pack. The two electric motors in the entry-level e-tron GT work together to produce a combined peak of 522 horsepower, while the RS e-tron GT ups the ante to 637 ponies. Avoid the pricier RS model if efficiency is what you're after, as its 232 miles of driving range falls short of the standard e-tron GT's 238-mile range.

Porsche Taycan — 83 MPGe
Porsche's entry in the EV segment is the slick-looking Taycan (pronounced TIE-kahn, not TAY-can) sedan. The model is at its most efficient form in its base and GTS guises. Both models return 83 MPGe combined, though the former nets 79 MPGe in the city and 88 MPGe highway, while the latter manages 83 and 82 MPGe, respectively. With its 93.4-kWh battery pack, the GTS offers up to 246 miles of EPA-rated range—the best of the Taycan model line. The base car's 79.2-kWh pack, meanwhile, affords it just 208 miles of range.

Jaguar I-Pace — 85 MPGe (tie)
Jaguar offers the 2023 I-Pace strictly in EV400 guise. As such, the all-wheel-drive electric SUV comes standard with a 90.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack and two electric motors (one at each axle), which produce a total of 394 horsepower. This results in an SUV that can hit 60 mph in less than five seconds. The I-Pace is also a family-friendly vehicle, with seating for five, 25 cubic feet of rear cargo space, and a small front trunk.

Mercedes EQS SUV — 85 MPGe (tie)
Mercedes's growing lineup of EQ electric vehicles gains a flagship SUV for 2023. The blob-shaped EQS SUV is based on the EQS sedan and features many of the same futuristic features as that luxury car, including the massive Hyperscreen infotainment setup. The higher-profile EQS SUV isn’t quite as efficient as its stablemate, though, with the most efficient version—the EQS450 Plus—netting 305 miles per charge and 85 MPGe combined.
- Base price: $105,550
- EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 85/87/83 MPGe

Volvo XC40 Recharge — 85 MPGe (tie)
Volvo claims its 402-hp XC40 Recharge can do a zero-to-60-mph launch in 4.7 seconds. A 78.0-kWh battery pack provides the all-wheel-drive SUV's two electric motors with enough energy to allow the XC40 Recharge to go 223 miles on a full charge, per the EPA. Thanks to its frunk cargo area, the XC40 Recharge has more space to store things versus the gas-powered XC40.
- Base price: $54,645
- EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 85/92/79 MPGe
- EPA combined range: 223 miles
BMW iX — 86 MPGe
The BMW iX's design may polarize, but its elegantly appointed interior is sure to impress. As is its all-wheel-drive battery-electric powertrain, which includes two electric motors (one at each axle) that produce a total of 516 horsepower in xDrive50 guise. Those in need of even more power can snag the 610 horsepower iX M60. No matter the trim, the iX packs serious dynamic performance. And yet, it's also surprisingly efficient. Its 86 MPGe combined figure helps this big SUV earn an EPA-rated range of 324 miles.
- Base price: $85,095
- EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 86/86/87 MPGe
- EPA combined range: 324 miles
Volvo C40 Recharge — 87 MPGe
If the Volvo XC40 Recharge's boxy look doesn't do it for you, then maybe the C40 Recharge's swoopy shape will. What's more, the C40 Recharge is more efficient than its squarer counterpart. As a result, this coupe-like electric SUV nets an EPA-rated driving range of 226 miles—3 miles more than the rated range of the XC40 Recharge.
- Base price: $56,395
- EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 87/94/80 MPGe
- EPA combined range: 226 miles
BMW i7 — 89 MPGe (tie)
Flagship luxury and electric motoring converge for BMW with the introduction of the i7. Despite its size, the i7 is fairly efficient, boasting an EPA combined rating of 89 MPGe and up to 318 miles per charge. To get to those maximums though, you’ll have to restrain yourself from ordering the optional 20- or 21-inch wheels, as either one of those reduces range and efficiency slightly. No matter which wheels you choose, you’ll find the i7 is both quick and quiet with an interior that is both plush and ultramodern.
- Base price: $120,295
- EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 89/87/92 MPGe
- EPA combined range: 318 miles
Cadillac Lyriq — 89 MPGe (tie)
Cadillac’s first entry into the luxury electric SUV category is the slick-looking Lyriq. It shares its battery tech with other high-profile GM EVs, including the GMC Hummer EV pickup truck, but it wears a more upscale wardrobe. The rear-wheel-drive model offers the most range—up to 312 miles per charge. The all-wheel-drive model adds an additional electric motor to produce a combined 500 horsepower. Unlike Caddy’s sports sedans, the Lyriq’s driving demeanor takes on a more comfortable, cruising-focused feel and the quiet cabin is spacious for both people and cargo.

Mazda MX-30 — 92 MPGe
The Mazda MX-30 is a stylish but underwhelming EV. Blame the front-drive SUV's 35.5-kWh battery pack, which nets the little Mazda an EPA-rated driving range of just 100 miles. The MX-30's base price is also notably higher than more efficient and longer-range EVs such as the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV. Nevertheless, if you're determined to get your hands on an MX-30, then you better live in—or be prepared to travel to—California, as Mazda's EV is (for now, at least) sold exclusively in the Golden State.

Audi Q4 e-tron Sportback — 95 MPGe (tie)
The Audi Q4 e-tron Sportback is the fastback equivalent to the brand's squareback Q4 e-tron. Unlike its squarer stablemate, though, the Sportback comes exclusively with all-wheel drive. There's no cheaper and more efficient rear-driver option here. Though the dual-motor setup is more powerful than the single-motor of the entry-level Q4 e-tron squareback, it's also a good deal less efficient. As such, the Sportback's 95 MPGe combined rating is down 8 MPGe to the most efficient Q4 e-tron squareback.
- Base price: $59,395
- EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 95/100/89 MPGe
- EPA combined range: 242 miles
Genesis GV60 — 95 MPGe (tie)
Although it shares its mechanicals with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6, the Genesis GV60 comes with its own distinct flavor. Its design features several call-outs to other Genesis models, including dual-element headlamps, but overall it’s a far more whimsical-looking package. It’s quick and fairly fun to drive. The GV60 delivers on efficiency with a 95 MPGe combined rating and up to 248 miles of range per charge. However, to unlock the most fun version of the GV60 means going with the Performance model, and that one isn’t quite as efficient.

More parking. That's all Scott Oldham really wants out of life. His three-car garage is full, as is his driveway. Necessity, combined with poor financial judgment and an inability to sell anything, has forced the second-generation automotive writer and smoky-burnout enthusiast to store a few of his prized American classics in rental garages around Los Angeles. But not the big-block 1969 Camaro his built with his dad; that one stays close to home.
Yes, he's still working on the 1986 Nissan 300ZX Turbo project car he started in high school, and no, it’s not for sale yet. Austin Irwin was born and raised in Michigan, and, despite getting shelled by hockey pucks during a not-so-successful goaltending career through high school and college, still has all of his teeth. He loves cars from the 1980s and Bleu, his Great Pyrenees, and is an active member of the Buffalo Wild Wings community. When Austin isn’t working on his own cars, he’s likely on the side of the highway helping someone else fix theirs.
Drew Dorian is a lifelong car enthusiast who has also held a wide variety of consumer-focused positions throughout his career, ranging from financial counselor to auto salesperson.
