Every EV on sale in America and its range

Each year, more and more electric vehicles hit the market. What used to be a small segment of short-range compact cars has grown into a pretty robust crop of vehicles. With different shapes and sizes, and ranges reaching as high as 300+ miles, electric cars are starting to make sense for more and more folks.

Here, we've compiled every pure electric vehicle on sale in the US today, and listed the range of its various models. Do note, we're not including plug-in hybrids in this list -- cars that use an electric motor in addition to a conventional internal combustion engine -- because their ranges are largely dependent on more than pure electricity.

Have a look through this gallery to see every EV on sale in America and its range. And always remember, your mileage may vary.

Fiat 500e

Range: 84 miles

Updated:Caption:Photo:Wayne Cunningham/CNET

The 2015 Fiat 500e has enough juice for most people's daily commutes, and it evokes high style rather than polarizing design. The peppy electric motor makes it a hoot to drive in the city and makes it complacent on the highway as well.

Honda Clarity Electric

Range: 89 miles

Updated:Caption:Photo:Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow

The Clarity Electric draws its power from a 25.5 kWh battery pack located at the rear of the vehicle. On a full charge, that's enough juice to cruise up to 89 miles according to Honda's and the EPA's estimates. You may get more with a light touch -- the trip computer estimates a little over 100 miles -- but probably not much. I finished my short time behind the wheel at around 94 very carefully driven miles.

Tesla Model S

Model S 75D Range: 259 miles
Model S 100D Range: 335 miles
Model S P100D Range: 315 miles

Updated:Caption:

An excerpt from our review if the Model S 60: "When it comes to specs, the only thing to care about in an electric car is kWh, or kilowatt hours. The Model S 60 has a, you guessed it, 60 kWh battery. That's enough to power it from nothing to 60 miles per hour in 5.5 seconds and to a top speed of 130 miles per hour. Of course, should you choose to hammer down that right pedal, expect the 210-mile driving range of the Model S 60 to drop. Precipitously."

Tesla Model X

Model X 75D Range: 237 miles
Model X 100D Range: 295 miles
Model X P100D Range: 289 miles

Updated:Caption:Photo:Tim Stevens/Roadshow

The Model X isn't just an SUV. It's an electric SUV, of course, but it's a lot more than that, too. It's quicker than most sports cars on the road, yet far more practical and more comfortable. It offers a selection of luxury appointments rarely found on cars not costing well into the six figures and it manages to fit three rows of seats in a distinctive shape in a segment full of me-too crossovers.
