How far can an electric car go?
Our interactive online tool helps you estimate the range of your EV based on the battery size, the state of charge, and the vehicle’s energy consumption. You can calculate the range left based on the actual state of charge or you can also calculate the distance you’ll be able to drive after charging your car to a certain battery level.

EV energy consumption
If you have some difficulties using our tool, we’ve created a step-by-step guide to assist you during the estimation. Simply follow the instructions below.
EV range calculator step-by-step guide
- Distance unit – select the distance unit, miles or kilometer.
- Battery size – Select the current battery size of the electric car in kWh.
- State of charge – This percentage corresponds to the current level of battery of the vehicle. This is the level of charge of an electric battery relative to its capacity. You can also select a future value and get an estimation of the distance you’ll be able to drive after charging your EV.
- EV energy consumption – Select here the energy consumption of your electric vehicle in kWh.
Congratulations! You’ve now calculated the range you can drive with your electric car.
The tool can also help you adjust your driving style. Play with the energy consumption to understand how big of an impact your driving style has on your available range. Here are a few examples:
|A vehicle with a battery capacity of 62 kWh||Energy Consumption||Range|
|State of charge – 60%||19.6 kWh/100 miles||190 miles|
|State of charge – 60%||21.5 kWh/100 miles||173 miles|
|State of charge – 60%||25.2 kWh/100 miles||148 miles|
Please note that this is an estimation and keep in mind that other factors can have a direct impact on the distance you can drive with your electric vehicle:
- Temperatures: hot and cold temperatures.
- Road type: driving on the highway, in the mountains or in the city.
- Speed and driving style: driving at high speeds, sudden acceleration and deceleration, and frequent stopping.
- Weight: loading the car with materials or passengers.
- Battery condition: age and usage can reduce the energy storage capacity of a battery over time.
- Climate control: number of active energy-consuming applications, such as air-condition or heaters.
- Tire condition: old or worn tires.
