Arguably the biggest impact on driving range comes from the characteristics of how you drive. Of course, the types of battery and volume of charge will play an important role too, but should you be guilty of a number of bad habits picked up through years of motoring, you could well see your hybrid or electric model fall short of its overall potential.
Environmental conditions play a significant part in affecting the performance and range of your vehicle. This is due to having to tackle more challenging surfaces, strong winds, varying temperatures, and so much more. Plus, you need to ensure that your vehicle is a comfortable environment for any journey, meaning heating and cooling is required.
Vehicle maintenance is an essential requirement that should never be overlooked, regardless of whether you’re behind the wheel of a petrol/diesel-powered model or an all-electric car. Experienced technicians will be able to check every component to ensure your model runs at its best at all times, with failing to address certain issues impacting range.
