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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Plus, it’s competitively priced and offers an EPA-rated range of 258 miles on a full charge. However, if you were hoping for all-wheel drive, you’re out of luck. It isn’t offered on the Kona Electric. A 64.0-kWh battery pack feeds a 201-hp electric motor, which drives the front wheels.
Base price: $34,885
EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 120/134/106 MPGe
EPA combined range: 258 miles

Tesla Model S — 120 MPGe (tie)
There were electric vehicles long before the Model S, but Tesla’s flagship sedan is the one that proved efficient, fast, and attractive EVs are marketable to the masses. Introduced way back in 2012, the Model S remains as appealing as ever, from its sleek muscular styling to its minimalistic interior. Its performance is still ahead of the industry that it dragged, kicking and screaming, into the EV business. Tesla has made improvements over the years, cranking up the hatchback’s acceleration and range. Today, Tesla offers the Model S in either its dual-motor standard guise or tri-motor Plaid trim. The latter packs a combined peak of 1020 horsepower. That’s enough grunt to scoot the pricier Plaid to 60 mph in 2.1 seconds.
Base price: $96,380
EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 120/124/115 MPGe
EPA combined range: 405 miles

Tesla Model Y — 122 MPGe
Don’t let the Tesla Model Y’s looks fool you, because it’s larger than it appears. At 187.0 inches long, the Y is 2.2 inches longer than a 2023 Honda CR-V. Its rounded design is right out of Tesla’s playbook, sort of a cross between the Model 3 sedan and the Model X SUV. Currently, Tesla offers two Model Y trims: Long Range and Performance. Both feature all-wheel drive by way of an electric motor at each axle.
Base price: $54,380
EPA fuel economy, combined/city/highway: 123/127/117 MPGe
EPA combined range: 330 miles
