Ecodriving Tips to Adopt
Ecodriving is cost-effective driving that will allow you to maximise the range of your electric car. Adapt your driving avoiding jolts, acceleration too strong and frequent, as well as braking.
Using Brake mode
Instead of continuously using the brake pedal, use the engine braking system, which allows energy to be regenerated and therefore charges the battery, during the braking and decelerating.
Using "eco" mode
Electric cars are equipped with an "eco" mode that saves energy by reasonably reducing engine power. This mode is preferred in the city because we need less power than on the motorway.
Using the preconditioning
When your vehicle is charged, take advantage to precondition the battery to limit the energy of the heating or cooling systems when driving. Heating or cooling the car during the charge does not make use of the current range
Maintaining the tyres
It is essential to maintain your tyres regardless of your car’s engine type. Besides representing safety, electric cars are concerned with reducing energy consumption, which is liable to increase with unsuitable or poorly inflated tyres.
