The newest electric vehicles with the most range

10 EVs for 2020 that will take you farther

The electric vehicle market sure is heating up these days. With new entrants coming into the fray every few months, it’s getting harder to keep track of all of the battery-powered electric vehicles offered today.

Because range is a huge consideration for any electric vehicle, we’ve rounded up the 10 EVs that you can buy new today that offer the most range between charges. As of this writing, each vehicle on this list is eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit plus whatever your state and local governments offer, which can make a significant dent in the purchase price.

For this list, we’re leaning on Environmental Protection Agency range ratings from fueleconomy.gov. While there are some much-hyped new EVs on the horizon — such as the Porsche Taycan, the Mercedes-Benz EQC and the Rivian R1T and R1S — that will likely place on this list in the future, they haven’t been rated by the EPA yet.

2020 Tesla Model S: 370 miles
While many electric vehicles have entered the fray since it first arrived in 2012, the Tesla Model S is still the range king. Tesla TSLA, +0.85% produces two versions of the Model S — perhaps unsurprisingly, the Long Range model offers the longest range, with 370 miles of possible range between charges. The Performance model, which offers an insane 0-to-60 mph time of 2.4 seconds, tops out at about 345 miles. All-new Model S vehicles come with all-wheel drive and an adaptive air suspension. Another of the vehicle’s most noteworthy features is its huge 17-in center screen, which acts as the vehicle’s command center and offers full web-browsing capabilities. (We absolutely do not recommend using this feature while driving.) A Model S Long Range starts around $80,000, while the Performance trim starts around $100,000.

2020 Tesla Model X — 325 miles
Basically an SUV version of the Model S, the bigger, heavier Model X doesn’t range quite as far as its sedan-bodied sibling. In the Long Range guise, the Model X can go about 325 between charges, and its 0-to-60 mph time is about 4.4 seconds. The Performance model’s range is about 305 miles, and it goes from 0-to-60 mph in about 2.7 seconds. Just like the Performance trim of the Model S, the Model X comes with Tesla’s Ludicrous Mode acceleration boost and sporty exterior styling elements. All Model X vehicles come with AWD drive and Tesla’s novel Falcon Wing doors, and they seat as many as seven people. Pricing starts at $85,000 for a Long Range model and $105,000 for a Performance trim — and climbs quickly once you start adding options.

The Tesla Model X has a range of 325 miles.

2019 Kia Niro EV — 239 miles

Trump Saw Turkey as Friend to ISIS Years Before Syria Pullout

MANHATTAN (CN) – A 2015 radio interview from the Donald Trump campaign trail has been political dynamite for those who believe the president has ulterior motives when it comes to his policy on Turkey.

“I have a little conflict of interest because I have a major, major building in Istanbul, and it’s a tremendously successful job,” Trump disclosed in a Dec. 1, 2015, interview alongside his future campaign chief, Steve Bannon. “It’s called Trump Towers. Two towers, instead of one. Not the usual one. It’s two.”

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had been prime minister at the property’s ribbon-cutting in 2012, receiving a thank-you for his attendance from Ivanka Trump on Twitter. Audio from the interview has been replayed on U.S. major networks whenever Trump steers U.S. foreign policy in an Erdogan-friendly direction.

What Trump declared after that comment, however, has been largely forgotten and was equally ominous.

“Turkey looks like they’re on the side of ISIS, more or less, based on the oil,” Trump told Bannon, who would briefly became Trump’s chief White House strategist.

That allegation did not stop Trump from praising Erdogan as a “strong leader.”

Last week, some four years after that interview, President Trump spoke to Erdogan on the phone and then gave his blessing for Turkey to invade territory in northern Syria held by the Kurds, a people historically considered U.S. allies.
