The electric cars with the longest range at Green Motion

While some of our customers are regular low-emission drivers – and perhaps own an electric car – some aren’t as experienced and may have never even driven an electric car before.

The specialists at our car hire branches in the UK take customers through what to expect and best practices but as a beginner, you might feel more comfortable using a model that doesn’t require being refilled as often.

Thankfully, electric car technology has come a long way in recent years and because of the high competition in the market, there are many car manufacturers battling to have the highest range, performance and lowest price. All that is good for you, the consumer, as the range of electric vehicles is getting longer and longer.

Even if you do find yourself having to stop off to charge up, the number of charging points in the UK is also growing day by day so it’s even easier for you to find a nearby station to fill up your electric car.

If you are looking to hire an electric car with long range, here are the most suitable electric cars currently available at Green Motion. Please note that our stocks vary from branch to branch so all of the below may not be available at the branch nearest to you.

Renault Zoe

Renault has been one of the most forward-thinking electric car manufacturers and there were claims that the Zoe could reach up to 249 miles from a single charge. In testing the true range in normal driving will be more like 186 miles in good conditions, and at worst, 124 miles.

BMW i3

The i3 comes in two versions, the fully electric model and the plug-in hybrid version. The fully electric i3 has a range of around 114 miles between charges.

Nissan LEAF

Since the Nissan Leaf debuted in 2010, many others have joined the electric car market. The Leaf is a longstanding electric car and it remains one of the best for range. The 2016 model has a 30 kilowatt-hour battery pack that gives the car a 107-mile range on a full charge.

In truth, the majority of our electric vehicles have an appealing range distance and there are many other features that might persuade you to pick a certain model. Is the size of the vehicle, space available and its power to your liking, too?

If you’ve yet to try an electric or hybrid vehicle, renting can give you the perfect opportunity to do so before committing to a purchase.
