The question of range on a daily basis, whether on short or long journeys, arises in the choice of any electric vehicle.
The range of our vehicles is given according to the WLTP (Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedures) cycle. This approved value can vary depending on a number of factors: discover the information that will allow you to better understand and benefit from the electrical driving experience.
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 range 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.
The more aggressive you are with acceleration and other factors, the more you may lose range.
Driving with accessories on the roof or with a heavy load weight will affect your vehicle's consumption.

By adopting a flexible driving style, you avoid over-consumption of energy. Anticipate your braking and decelerations, limit bumps. On fast lanes, adjust your speed to the maximum, with high speeds rapidly reducing your car's range.
PRE-CONDITION YOUR VEHICLE
Take advantage of charging times to pre-condition your car without impacting its load level. This way you limit the energy consumption of air conditioning or heating systems when you are driving.
USE MODE B (BRAKE)
Use B mode as soon as you can, this will help to recharge the battery during braking and deceleration.
WATCH FOR TYRES
Beyond your safety, it is essential to ensure that your vehicle's tyres are in good condition and well inflated to optimize energy consumption.
