Electric vehicles are the future of cars, and when buying an electric car, the first aspect most buyers consider is the range of the car. Range is the ability to cover long distances without stopping to recharge and the higher the range the better. The range of the vehicle depends largely on the size of the battery that the car packs. The larger the battery, the greater the consumer’s range. So here are the best big battery and millage electric cars.
