Electric car range and 5 reasons why your range anxiety is unwarranted 
Last updated on June 19, 2023
Many potential electric car drivers suffer from range anxiety—the fear that their car’s battery will die mid-trip. The truth is that this fear is often unwarranted. While your car will eventually run out of battery if you drive far enough without charging, the average EV today has a 217-mile (350-kilometer) range – much more than the average commute distance in the EU or the US.
This article is written to answer each of these questions and ease your mind by presenting five clear reasons why range anxiety is –in most cases– unjustified.

- You can charge while you park
