Precondition your ride
If you plan on heading out with your electric charge, we highly recommend starting up your ride before you even head out of your driveway or garage. Not only will your vehicle be perfect when it comes to the interior temperature, but you won’t end up wasting any charge because you can keep it plugged into the outlet. Every single minute is valuable and easily translates into miles that you might want to travel later. Being this prepared and this on top of the game will allow you a wider range for where you can drive, and also a more comfortable ride since you won’t be waiting for the air conditioning or heating system to kick in.
Are you heading out on a longer trip than just your usual errands around time? If the answer is yes, then it’s time to plan out your route so you can make sure you are within range of a charging station that can keep you headed in the right direction without any added anxiety. There are many apps these days that provide you with an updated list of charging stations around you, and you can really utilize that technology to see what options will be in the area that you are traveling to. They can even show off real-time availability, so you know the busiest ones that you might end up coming across, and hopefully, get one that you can start charging with immediately!
The last major tip that we want to give to all of you new electric vehicle drivers is to drive with efficiency in mind. Just like gasoline-powered models, electric vehicles can go further just by changing up your driving style. This means employing tactics like coasting to a stop, accelerating gradually, and avoiding speeding as much as possible. Aggressive driving in particular will end up draining your car’s battery far faster than you would like. By just practicing a little patience, you can get a much better range from your vehicle!
