    2020 Tesla Model 3 beats Hyundai IONIQ to become most efficient EV produced

    2020 Tesla Model 3 beats Hyundai IONIQ to become most efficient EV produced
    by Seth Weintraub

    The 2020 EPA estimated ranges are out for both the Tesla Model 3 and Hyundai IONIQ and we have a new champion of efficiency. Hint: It is not the car that looks like a glorified Prius, it is the full-featured sedan with a snappy 0-60 time…

    Hyundai has been the champion of the electric vehicle efficiency game since it debuted its IONIQ in 2016. That vehicle and subsequent model years had a 28kWh battery that Hyundai was able to squeeze an impressive 124 miles of range. That gave it a MPGe rating of 136 miles which is above the 120-ish miles that compact BMW i3 and Chevy Bolts were able to achieve.
    ...
    Tesla’s website was updated three weeks ago showing 250 miles and with the results out today, it looks like that was enough to push Tesla to an incredible 141 MPGe combined, or only 24kWh of battery to travel 100 miles. That not only beats this year’s bigger IONIQ, it beats the all time champ the 2017-2019.
    I normally don't post articles about Tesla from Electrek but this is fairly quantitative, so I'll make an exception. It's remarkable that a car with a big enough battery for 250mi range and a heavy glass roof, and can do 0-60 in 5.3s, is the most efficient EV on the market.
