Which electric cars have the longest range?

As the electric car market expands, the focus on the economics of the electric motor has diminished somewhat in the shadow of how far the battery can get you. We want more value for our money and for most people that means being able to make longer journeys without worrying about the battery charge. The technology that powers electric cars gets better and better. Innovations shine with every newly released car and, the more we get, the more we expect. So which electric cars can appease our need for more and provide the longest range per charge?
