DRIVING ADVICE, ECO-DRIVING (1/2)
The vehicle range depends on vehicle
usage conditions, equipment fitted and
the user’s driving style. To optimise the
energy consumption, please refer to
the following advice.
Depending on the vehicle, you will be
provided with functions which enable
you to lower the energy consumption:

VEHICLE RANGE: recommendations (1/2)
In real usage, the range of an electric
vehicle may vary depending on several
factors over which you have partial con-
trol, which may make a considerable
difference to the vehicle range. These
factors are:
- speed and driving style;
- type of road;
- heating level;
- tyres;
- vehicle loading.
Furthermore, activating ECO mode
