Of course a vehicle with a 107kw battery will get better range than one with a 77kw battery. I think it’s a bit misleading to rank it based on range without stating the battery size. Or atleast group them based on similar specs then rank within that group.

It's not misleading, the chart is labeled for range, and that's what the typical consumer is primarily going to care about. They also show consumption in a separate table, which includes range, and you can sort it either way.

Right now, range and efficiency are two different things. Range is the distance you travel if the vehicle is charged and driven in a certain manner. Efficiency is how far a vehicle can travel using a defined amount of electricity (or gasoline/diesel for MPG). Pretty much the Tesla is the most efficient. A Mustang Mach E not so much. So all of these Ev's come with differing size battery packs, differing weights and differing efficiencies all of which combine to produce a range for the vehicle. Kia/Hyundai decided the smaller 77.4 kW battery pack would suffice for range especially since you can do a quick charge if your have access to a 350 kW DC charger. If you don't and have like a 240 volt 40 amp charger, plan on 5-8 hours depending on your starting point.
