12 battery-powered cars took part in the maxi-test, so-called “long range”, that is, equipped with accumulators with a capacity greater than 70 kWh. But, with the exception of this data, the models examined are different from each other in terms of price, size and performance. In any case, “the surveys are of interest to all potential buyers in order to know their effective autonomy in realistic travel conditions”.

«The objective of this test is to verify that electric cars for traveling are a market reality. The barrier to overcome in terms of real autonomy is that of 300 kilometers, it being understood that the car alone is not enough and must be accompanied by a high-power charging infrastructure located on the main motorways “, said Alessandro Lago, Director of and «In this sense, Italy is very late and we must hope that in 2022 the many declarations of intent that have been heard for months will materialize.
