Depending on the main factors like the battery size, the weight and size of your vehicle, and the motor capability, the range of your electric car varies a lot. But also your practical driving style allows you to get the maximum range whenever you hit on the road. For now, let’s go over some of the various ways to maximize your electric vehicle range before you need to plug in again.

Chances are, you’ve plugged your EV into your home charger overnight, so it’s topped up and ready to go in the morning. Remember, though, as soon as you unplug your car, any power used will be taken from the battery – particularly on cold or hot days where you need to warm or cool the cabin before setting off. With that in mind, try setting the climate control going before unplugging your vehicle – EVolt Car Control feature will be launching soon that way, the energy used in cooling or heating your vehicle will be drawn from the main power supply, rather than from the battery, giving you maximum range once you do unplug.
