Electric Vehicles That Can Go Over 500 Miles
Unfortunately, there aren’t many upcoming electric vehicles that can reach 500 miles (800 km) without charging. Still, enthusiasts have something to look forward to as various manufacturers have announced models that will meet this criterion.
The list you’re about to see includes a luxury saloon, utility, and commercial truck representatives. Enjoy finding out more about electric cars and vehicles that can go over 500 miles (800 km) on just one charge:
Receiving the federal EPA certification for ranges up to 520 miles (840 km), Lucid Air is officially the first electric vehicle that can reach and exceed the 500-mile (800-km) mark in a single charge. Let’s take a look at some of this model’s specs:

|Charging time for 300 miles (480 kilometers)||20 minutes|
|0-60 mph (0-100 km/h)||2.5 seconds|
|Max power||Up to 1,111 horsepower|
The numbers listed in the table are more than impressive. Lucid Air is a giant leap in EV technology, range, and power. However, there are a few issues with this model:
The primary issue is that the range-topping Lucid Air model that can get over 500 miles (800 km) per charge is already sold out. The second issue is the price – the Dream Edition prices start at $139,000.

One of the most highly anticipated EVs until now, the Cybertruck has been a source of confusion and disappointment for potential buyers. Here’s why:
Although the release was first announced for late 2021, the Tesla Cybertruck has yet to get an official release date. After announcing the model and listing its specifications on their website, Tesla removed all of the numbers, causing concerns about Cybertruck’s realistic capabilities.
There’s also good news: the top-of-the-range Tesla Cybertruck is expected to start at $69,900. YouTube offers a visual representation of the Tesla Cybertruck, as well as some more in-depth info:

The Future of Electric Vehicles (EVs That Can Go Over 700 Miles)
Owning a vehicle that can go for hundreds of miles with one charge might sound like a good idea. However, it’s highly debatable whether this feature is something we should be focusing on when buying a new electric car.
Here are two things every electric car buyer should keep in mind:
- Electric vehicles with a bigger range are more expensive.
- The average motorist in the US drives just 39 miles (60 km) per day.
Despite this fact, consumers are always after the newest and brightest that the EV industry has to offer. This is where new manufacturers step in with electric vehicle concepts that can reach up to 700 miles (1,130 km).
Triton Model H
Based in New Jersey, Triton Solar is an electric vehicle industry newcomer that announced plans for a new luxury SUV that can go more than 700 miles (1,130 km) on a single charge. Here are some of the specs announced for this model:
|Triton Model H: Key Numbers|
|Range||Up to 700 miles (1,130 kilometers)|
|Charging time||2 hours (Hypercharge)|
|0-60 mph (0-100 km/h)||2.9 seconds|
|Max power||1,500 horsepower|
According to the manufacturer, the Triton Model H will also come with:
- A 10-year warranty
- Eight seats
- An exceptional towing capacity that puts Tesla’s Cybertruck to shame
The only negative is that we have no way of knowing when the vehicle will be available. Preorders are open, and the first 100 Founder’s Edition models have been reserved.
While there aren’t currently any electric cars on the market that can reach the 500-mile (800-km) range in a single charge, this should change with the arrival of the Lucid Air and the Tesla Cybertruck.
In the meantime, we can choose from a wide range of electric vehicles that can hit and exceed the 400-mile (640-km) mark. This list includes models such as:
- Mercedes-Benz EQs (485 miles or 780 km)
- Mercedes-Benz EQE (410 miles or 660 km)
- Tesla Model S (405 miles or 650 km)
