New figures: These electric cars last the shortest on a charge

Two brand new electric cars failed completely when they were subjected to the world's biggest test of electric cars in particular. Both the Volvo EX30 and Volkswagen ID.3 stalled for 80 percent of the promised range.

The illuminated range in an electric car is one thing. The world and ways of reality are completely different.

The two things often go together poorly or not at all. This is shown by a new test from the Norwegian answer to FDM, NAF.

In Norwegian summer weather, two brand new electric cars in particular fall through the cracks. Neither the Volkswagen ID.7 nor the Volvo EX30 Extended Range managed to match just 80 percent of the promised range.

Both cars will run on electricity before then. The temperature fluctuated from plus 2.5 to 13 degrees, and along the way it rained heavily, i.e. nothing more than you would expect from a Norwegian 'summer'.

Only one of the total of 26 electric cars went further on a charge than they should be able to according to the WLTP standard. Namely the Mini Countryman SE All4. However, the winner of the test was the car of the year in Europe Renault Scenic, because with a range of 428.1 kilometers it was closest to the stated 411 kilometers.

Then there were the cars that fell completely through. The BMW i5 completely flopped with a deviation from the WLTP norm of minus 24 percent, the Volkswagen lacked 22.7 percent and the Volvo EX30 20.4 percent to reach its own figures.

At NAF, however, they are pleasantly surprised by the result. Especially because the cars didn't use more electricity.

– The cars used little electricity despite the really wet and cold weather. In addition, the majority of the cars charge the battery in half an hour or faster, says Nils Sodal, senior communications advisor at NAF.
