Manufacturers of electric cars are using exaggerated driving ranges as the official tests to not reflect real life, a study has revealed.
More than 70 electric vehicles were analysed in independent tests by consumer champions Which? showed that real-world ranges were almost 20 per cent lower than what car makers advertised, on average.
Tests also found that electric car batteries will need around 15 per cent extra power than what has been advertised to fully charge - resulting in higher running costs.
