Norwegian Automotive Federation members tested 21 pure electric cars and tested them in real-world conditions to see what their true autonomy is.
Norway is the country with the highest proportion of pure electric vehicles in the world. The market share in this country is impressive, as 8,498 EV cars were sold in May alone. As pioneers in electrification, Norwegians are the ideal to judge electric cars. So the Nordic State Automobile Federation carried out a particularly interesting test.
The test was carried out on the same day, under the same conditions and on the same routes. The route concerned the provincial, urban and national road networks based on the country’s speed limits. The drivers started from the city, continued on the highway and even crossed a mountain, in order to realistically check energy consumption and autonomy.
All vehicles were charged at 100% and the test ended until the battery reached 0%. The models evaluated were:
Ford Mustang Mach-E Long Range AWD
Ford Mustang Mach-E Long Range RWD
Tesla Model 3 Standard Range
Tesla Model 3 Long Range
Volkswagen ID.3 Pro S
Audi E-Tron GT
Hyundai Ioniq 5
Hyundai Kona electric
Volvo XC40 Recharge
The results were very interesting. Of the 21 vehicles, 18 not only had autonomy equal to the European WLTP test cycle, but also exceeded it. First and by far compared to WLTP was the Tesla Model 3, doing with a charge of 612 kilometers versus 560 km. The greatest autonomy, however, is Ford’s Mustang Mach-E Long Range RWD with 617.9 km. Also excellent was the BMW iX3 with 556.2 km.
