Several factors can impact your vehicle's range. These include your driving speed and style, the load carried, the use of heating and air conditioning and the terrain. Follow our advice to optimise your range.


Drive smoothly

By driving smoothly, you avoid excessive energy consumption. Brake and decelerate slowly and in advance and limit jolts. On motorways, adjust your speed as much as possible, as high speeds rapidly reduce the range of your car.

Use the brake mode

Make use of engine braking instead of the brake pedal as soon as you can. This will allow your electric or hybrid vehicle to charge its battery during braking and deceleration.

Pre-set your vehicle's temperature

Take advantage of charging times to remotely pre-set the car's temperature without affecting its charge level. This way you limit the energy consumption of the air conditioning or heating systems when you are driving.

Keep an eye on the tyres

In addition to ensuring your safety, it is essential to make sure that your vehicle's tyres are in good condition and properly inflated to optimise its energy consumption.


You can plug your car in every day or leave it unplugged for a long time without affecting the battery, but it is recommended that you charge it at least once a month. The battery management system is electronically controlled and uses very little power. If you generally do lots of short charges, it's a good idea to perform a full standard charge every two weeks.
Whether you have single-phase or three-phase current, you will be able to charge your vehicle. If your vehicle is compatible, i.e. equipped with an integrated three-phase charger, you will get a faster charge as the three-phase current is more powerful.
