It’s official. The Tesla Model S 100D has the longest range of any EV in the world. The EPA has recently released the ratings for the car, which started shipping last month. The Model S 100D has a city range of 331.1 miles (532.8 km) and a highway range of 337.2 miles (542.6 km). This means that the combined range of the vehicle is 335 miles (539.1 km).

The EPA also released the efficiency numbers for the Model S 100D. The car has received a rating of 102 MPGe combined or 101 MPGe in the city and 102 MPGe on the highway. These numbers don’t place it at the very top of the list, as there are a few EVs that are a lot more efficient.

The number one spot belongs to Hyundai’s Ioniq Electric that has a rating of 134 MPGe, thanks to its range of 124 miles on a 28 kWh battery pack. It is followed by the BMW i3 in second place with 124 MPGe.

The next EV from Tesla to get rated by the EPA is expected to be the Model 3. Based on its smaller battery and a more affordable price tag, it won’t beat the Model S 100D in terms of range. But it just might beat one if its biggest competitors, the Chevy Bolt. A few weeks ago, Elon Musk hinted that the Model 3 will have a better range than the Bolt, which means it should go for at least 238 miles before it runs out of juice.
