Electric mobility is here to stay, something that is reflected in the large number of new electric models that appear every day. This short guide will serve you on the day you drive one.
Keep in mind that electric cars do not have a gearbox or clutch and therefore they drive like an automatic car. Be careful because the initial force is instantaneous and, consequently, the acceleration is greater than that of a traditional combustion vehicle. This makes them go at maximum power starting from zero revolutions. For this reason, you have to drive smoothly, especially in the first few meters of the journey, accelerating smoothly and progressively.
SLOW DOWN IS THE NEW BRAKE
The latest electric models come equipped with an energy recovery system that partially recharges the batteries by slightly releasing the accelerator, reducing speed the moment you take your foot off the accelerator. If we were in a conventional car, this action would be the equivalent of gently pressing the brake.
BE CAREFUL WITH THE HEATING OR AIR CONDITIONER
In a traditional combustion car, it is recommended to keep a temperature that does not exceed 22 degrees so as not to increase fuel consumption. In the case of electric, it must be taken into account that the autonomy of the vehicle may be affected depending on driving and the use of heating or air conditioning, so that these affect the autonomy as little as possible, it is recommended to use the automatic connection systems . In this way, when the car is going to be used it will already be at the right temperature and the air conditioning will only have to maintain it.
WITHOUT PLANNING, THERE IS NO TRIP
The autonomy of electric vehicles is less than that of a traditional vehicle and requires advance planning of the routes as well as taking into account the charging points to take full advantage of the additional charges that can be carried out during the day.
