Study: Americans Want EVs With 500 Miles of Range

Jan. 25, 2022

Currently unsustainable in the market, the Lucid Air is the only current EV that could match that range.

Jan. 25, 2022—Americans want electric vehicles with over 500 miles of range, KBB reported. 

According to the 2022 Global Automotive Consumer Study published by Deloitte, Americans averaged an answer of 518 miles to the question, “How much driving range would a fully charged all-battery electric vehicle need to have in order for you to consider acquiring one?”

That is currently unsustainable in the market. The Lucid Air is the only current EV that could match that range, according to the report, and the Air costs $169,000. And it’s sold out. 

Respondents cited three main hurdles to changing their minds about EV adoption: range, lack of charging infrastructure, and the higher cost of EVs.
