Increasing range of electric vehicles

Hannah Ritchie compared electric vehicle range over the years:

The median range of EVs has increased 3.5-fold since 2011. You can see the median increasing as the red line shifts further to the right. The mid-range car in 2011 was the Nissan Leaf, where you could get 73 miles on a single charge. In 2022 this was the Chevrolet Bolt, at 247 miles.

Each line represents a vehicle type, and the red lines indicate the median range. The distributions expand and shift towards longer range.
