We drove these electric cars until they DIED! 5

How far can these electric cars go before they die?! We drove the Tesla Model 3, Audi e-tron, Jaguar I-Pace, Nissan Leaf, Kia e-Niro and Mercedes EQC across the UK to see how long they could last! Sure, the smart money is on the Tesla, with its claimed range of up to 348 miles – but can the manufacturer's figures really be trusted? Will victory instead go to the sporty-feeling I-Pace, or the posher EQC? Or will the more affordable likes of the e-Niro and Leaf pull a major upset and make it the furthest? There's only one way to find out...

💬 Comments on the video

For those who uses metric and want to know how far these cars went:

Mercedes : 194 miles = 312km
Audi : 206 miles = 331km
Nissan : 208 miles = 334km
Jaguar : 223 miles = 358km
Kia : 255 miles = 410km
Tesla : 270 miles = 434km

Based on the amount of likes and comments my comment got I think people do agree that carwow needs to have a straight up converter from miles to km. Due to the large following carwow already got.

Always strange to watch a video to see a Lidl carpark that you can see out of the room you are watching the video in.

Me: Does the UK go by Imperial units, or the Metric system?
The UK: Yes.

I just think its funny how they refer to distance in miles, then refer to the temperature in Celsius

That Mercedes is quite a disappointment. Bad range and looks weird.

Wether Mercedes is petrol, diesel or electric they will always be less efficient

So easily said kia was the most honest out of the others in claimed

Technically Kia won with 90 something percent of the range the second Nissan with 80 something percent ranage

Author — Dineo Ramatsoma


seems the KIA was the clear winner. 90% of the rated battery, almost as long range, and much cheaper in price!

Author — Jackson Redstar


Isn't the Kia the winner in this one seeing it's the closets to it's claimend range?

Author — Jurjen


I get anxious when my phone gets down to low battery I can't imagine the panic attack I'd be having as my car battery is on 3%

Idk why you guys run these cars in miles. Running them in km gives then soooo much more range.

Author — Sir Boring Name


So driving to the alps is basically not a possibility anymore. I'll stick to any petrol powered car lol.

Author — LavishMcTavish


Honestly I feel like the kia was the true winner simply because of how close it came to it`s claimed range, and when you consider what you get for the price it`s probably the most sensible buy overall...
