How to get the most out of your EV

The good news is that 250-300+ miles on a single charge is standard for WeFlex vehicles. You may only need to charge 2-3 times a week.

There are external factors which affect the range you will get our of your car, the main one being the weather.

 

As a general rule:

  • cold temperatures = shorter range

  • warm temperatures = longer range

We've put together some tips on how to get the maximum range in your EV:

heated car seat

Use heated seats if you have them when you don’t need to heat your whole car - this saves energy

Avoid using the heater or air conditioner when you don’t need it

Acceleration

Go easy on the accelerator

Regenerative braking

Use regenerative braking, which allows electric cars to make use of braking energy that would otherwise be wasted.

Eco

Drive in ECO mode

There's also charging factors which can affect your range and how much it costs:

Constantly rapid charging your battery can lead to the range dropping – be sure to slow charge too

Only rapid charge to 80% as last 20% takes a long time, and is therefore a waste of money

Generally, the faster the charger, the more money it costs

Some networks charge different pricing at different times of day so do your research!

i.e cheaper at night

Watch out for hidden idling charges at some EV chargers

Most charging apps will show you whether chargers are available and how much they cost – check before you plan to drive to one

A great app to use is ZapMap

Some charging networks provide cheaper rates if you subscribe, so we suggest you look in to subscriptions if there is a charger which you use frequently

bp pulse

BP Pulse is one of the largest networks in the UK with over 9,000 chargers
