The battery life of an electric vehicle is a performance that users will attach great importance to when purchasing, and in order to have a good battery life, in addition to using a larger battery, it is also very important to improve the energy efficiency of the car.
The latest data released by the US Department of Energy shows that 17 electric vehicles have achieved an energy efficiency of 100 miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent (MPGe) or higher. MPGe stands for the "fuel economy" of an electric vehicle, 33.7 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity has the same energy content as a gallon of fuel and is also used by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to measure the efficiency of an electric vehicle.
The data shows that there are 17 electric vehicles in the United States that can reach 100MPGe or higher, of which the base Tesla Model 3 rear-wheel drive (RWD) version has the highest energy efficiency, reaching 132MPGe, which is equivalent to running a gasoline car per gallon of gasoline. 132 miles, the fuel consumption standard commonly used in China is about 1.78L / 100KM, which can be said to be very economical.
The Model 3 is followed by the Lucid Air, an all-electric luxury car that's rated at 131MPGe. In third place is the Model Y, which also has an energy efficiency of 129 MPGe. Tesla's two other flagship vehicles, the Model S and Model X, also achieved notable efficiency figures, with the Model S at 120 MPGe and the Model X at 102 MPGe.
