Factors affecting the power reserve of your electric vehicle
✅ Speed. Smooth, eco-friendly driving allows you to optimize the power reserve. At a speed of 130 km/h, the power reserve on electric traction is halved.
✅ Heating. Heating and air conditioning can take from 10 to 30% of the battery energy. At the same time, the other devices responsible for comfort (radio, optics, windscreen wipers, etc.) do not significantly affect the power consumption.
✅ Climatic conditions. The outside air temperature directly affects the power reserve of your car (at 0 °C it is reduced by 10%).
✅ Terrain. When climbing uphill, electricity consumption increases, which affects the power reserve. At the same time, during the descent, due to regenerative braking, the energy reserve is replenished.
✅ Tire pressure. If the tires are insufficiently inflated, rolling resistance increases significantly, which leads to higher power consumption.
✅ Transported cargo. Cargo transportation on the roof and movement with an open window increase wind resistance and, as a result, electricity consumption. The weight of the cargo also affects the power reserve.
