The figures listed are EPA.gov estimates, which assume a combination of city and highway driving. fueleconomy.gov was another source of this data.

The 2020 and 2021 Tesla Model 3 standard range models consume the least amount of electricity per mile, at 0.24 kWh/mile.

The 2019 Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus and 2021 Tesla Model 3 Long Range follow closely behind.

Also with the second lowest kWh/mi are the 2017-2021 Hyundai Ioniq Electric models, with a consumption per mile of 0.25 kWh. That’s just 0.01 kWh more than the lowest amount of electricity that an electric car consumes per mile.

Tesla models dominate the third lowest amount of electricity consumed per mile category.

Several BMW i3 models, Tesla models and Hyundai Kona models make up the fourth category. With a power consumption of 0.27 kWh per mile, these electric car models consume the fourth lowest amount of electricity per mile.
