Electric car autonomy: which are the 2022 electric cars with the most autonomy, features and list prices.
Electric cars are the protagonists of this period, although there is still some resistance that prevents widespread proliferation – in favor of hybrids and plug-in hybrids. One of the reasons why Italians are reluctant to buy a full electric car is certain the autonomy factor which still thanks to the few infrastructures gives rise to the fear of being left on foot with the car unloaded.
Fortunately, the trend is changing, and in general, the range of electric cars has improved a lot compared to before. Let’s see some models there they also allow long journeys.
