With electric vehicles becoming more mainstream, paying less for one doesn’t have to mean you’ll be saddled with a short driving range. And you don’t have to pay a big luxury-car price for an EV that allows you to drive farther between charges. In fact, most of the EVs from luxury automakers have lower range estimates.

American car shoppers can now find EVs across a variety of prices and automakers. By 2022, automakers plan to introduce at least nine more models that are rated to reach or exceed 250 miles on a single charge.

Each of the models below can travel more than 250 miles on a single charge, according to their ratings by the Environmental Protection Agency. That means owners don’t need to recharge them every day, and with planning, these vehicles can even be used for longer trips. And knowing that cold weather can reduce range, these have particular appeal for shoppers in northern states.

They are listed in descending order by maximum range.
