Both range and miles per kWh need to be considered, but personal preference also comes into play. There's no one-size-fits-all answer, so finding an electric vehicle that's ideal for you can be tricky.
If you live in a city with short commutes and are looking for a cost-efficient car, then prioritising miles per kWh over range is sensible. It'll cost you less to operate per mile, you won't use up much energy, and you don't need the range of a long-distance cruiser.
However, prioritising range is sensible if you plan on racking up the miles in your electric vehicle and live in an area with poor charging infrastructure. A car with a good range means you won't have to charge as often, and when on the road for long journeys, you won't have to stop as often.
Ultimately, the key is understanding your driving patterns and preferences and choosing an electric car that matches those criteria.
