The range anxiety that has previously hampered the uptake of electric vehicles appears to be a thing of the past. New analysis suggests the average distance a new electric car coming to the market for the first time in 2023 can travel on a single charge is almost 300 miles. That’s around three times the average distance driven per week and, with new electric vehicles (EVs) also available with ranges in excess of 450 miles, more than adequate for higher mileage drivers. The average range for all available electric cars, meanwhile, is now 236 miles, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). There are now around 80 EVs available across every vehicle segment – compared with just 21 in 2018.As result, almost one in four car models is available as a battery electric vehicle (BEV).
