For the 2022 model year (MY 2022), 17 electric vehicle (EV) models achieved 100 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) or more. MPGe is a unit of measurement used by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to represent the fuel economy of EVs in a common unit with gasoline vehicles, where 33.7 kilowatt hours of electricity equals the energy contained in a gallon of gasoline. Among these 17 models, there were a total of 37 unique configurations that achieved 100 MPGe or more. The Tesla Model 3 in rear-drive configuration scored the highest rating for MY 2022 with 132 MPGe.
- Electric vehicles only include all-electric vehicles.
- There may be multiple configurations for a base model that distinguish features such as drive type, battery size, wheel size, and specific trim options, and require separate certification.
- Only the base model names are displayed and only the highest MPGe values are displayed for each model name. Some models listed have configurations below 100 MPGe.
