Range can be maximised in a number of ways, by limiting the impact of the factors detailed above – for example only using heating and air conditioning when needed or not carrying unnecessary load. However, our vehicles also have a host of features designed to assist you in maximising range:
•Be guided by the indicators on the vehicle: while driving you can easily see whether your vehicle is using a lot of energy, or not and small adjustments in speed can make a big difference.
•‘B’ for Braking mode can also be selected on the gearstick, meaning your vehicle will use a higher level of regenerative braking and slow down quicker when your foot is off the accelerator. Regenerative braking slows the vehicle while harnessing the kinetic energy back into the battery – thus helping to maximise range.
•There is an e-Remote control feature within the MyCitroën app which allows you to remotely pre-heat or cool your vehicle from your smartphone. So on a hot summer day, you can switch on the pre-conditioning, so the car is an ambient temperature when you get it. So long as the vehicle is on charge, the energy will be taken from the power source, rather than the battery, therefore not impacting your driving range.
•Within the MyCitroën app you can receive personalised eco driving tips, based on your own driving data.
