No, these factors do not affect the driving range of your XPRES-T EV . The four main factors that reduce the range of an electric vehicle are the type of journey, speed, use of air conditioning and heating and driving style.
The electric motor uses energy only when vehicle is moving. When stationary, the only energy consumption is from any additional systems that you are using, such as the heating or air conditioning. When stationary XPRES-T EV uses very little energy, especially compared to a conventional fuel-powered car, which consumes energy even when stationary as the engine keeps running.
The way you drive your vehicle has a direct influence on the driving range. We have summarised a few tips to make your battery last longer:
- Adopt a more relaxed, gentle driving style
- Drive at a constant speed as much as you can: adjust your speed by controlling your acceleration, including going downhill
- Use the regenerative braking: when you need to bring the vehicle to a stop, first release the accelerator pedal to decelerate gently, then stop the vehicle with the brake pedal at a lower speed.
