Electric cars are better now than ever before. Even the cheapest models can travel around a hundred miles before needing to be charged up again and the more expensive ones can go for over 200 miles in between stops. For most drivers, that’s plenty, but some people will want to squeeze every last drop of energy out of their battery before stopping to plug in.
Of course, driving efficiently is about more than just prolonging your battery life. By using less energy, you’ll be saving money and helping the environment too. Driving inefficiently is wasteful, both in terms of your finances and your ecological footprint, so by following these simple steps you’ll be doing yourself and everybody else a favour.
We sell a variety of EVs, including the first-generation Leaf, which will go about 100 miles before needing to be charged up, and models like the Tesla Model S, some versions of which can travel well over 300 miles between charges. Popular mid-range models like the Hyundai Kona Electric and Kia e-Niro can travel well over 200 miles too. But all of them will go further with sensible driving methods and a bit of common sense.
