Since 2011, significant improvements in battery technologies and overall EV efficiency have led to an expanding number of EV models and increased driving ranges.
The median EPA estimated range for all EV models offered in the 2020 model year exceeded 250 miles, according to the U.S. Department of Energy data.
The 2020 model year also marked the first year that an EV achieved an EPA estimated maximum range of more than 400 miles.
