With so many electric cars and vehicles now available it can be a minefield to know which is best. Everyone has different requirements and needs. Often range is one of the biggest factors when it comes to electric car choice. Here we look at the zero-emissions cars currently available, or available to order in the UK, with the biggest range.

Currently, Tesla leads the charge with seven of their models in the top 10 electric cars with the best range. This is followed by Ford with their new Mach-E models that are now available to order.
