At 130km/h, the range of a 100% electric vehicle is halved compared to the WLTP-approved range.
Superchargers are available along the motorway network to allow you to quickly regain autonomy during a coffee break or lunch: up to 80% in 30 minutes (depending on vehicles, supercharger 100kW).
The climatic conditions and their consequences: the need to warm the cabin, to cool it have an impact on the battery life.
Use thermal preconditioning when the vehicle is in charge to start at the right temperature and optimise range.
Your driving style has an impact on the range of your vehicle.
Choose a flexible ride to optimise it.
Driving with accessories on the roof or with a heavy load weight will affect your vehicle's consumption.
SIMULATE THE RANGE OF YOUR VEHICLE
You can evaluate the range of Citroën electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles according to speed, driving style and temperature. For example, simulate the range of the New Citroën ë-C4 Electric.
By driving smoothly, you avoid excessive energy consumption. Brake and decelerate slowly and in advance and limit jolts. On motorways, adjust your speed as much as possible, as high speeds rapidly reduce the range of your car.
Pre-set your vehicle's temperature
Take advantage of charging times to remotely pre-set the car's temperature without affecting its charge level. This way you limit the energy consumption of the air conditioning or heating systems when you are driving.
Use the brake mode
Make use of engine braking instead of the brake pedal as soon as you can. This will allow your electric or hybrid vehicle to charge its battery during braking and deceleration.
Keep an eye on your tyres
In addition to ensuring your safety, it is essential to make sure that your vehicle's tyres are in good condition and properly inflated to optimise energy consumption.
