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;
- use of electrical accessories;
- vehicle loading.
Furthermore, activating ECO mode en-

TYRE PRESSURE MONITOR (1/5)
Resetting the standard level
for the tyre pressures
This should be done:
1
- when the standard tyre pressure
needs to be changed to adapt to
usage conditions (empty, carrying a
load, motorway driving, etc.);
- after swapping a wheel (however
this practice is not recommended);
- after changing a wheel.
It should always be done after checking
the tyre pressure of all four tyres when
cold.
If the vehicle is equipped with the func-

carrying a load, motorway driving, etc.).
Operating principle
Each wheel has a sensor in the inflation
valve which periodically measures the
tyre pressure.
The system displays the current pres-
sures on the instrument panel 1 and
alerts the driver in the event of insuffi-
cient pressure.
If the vehicle is equipped with a nav-
igation system, the resetting proce-
dure may also be carried out using
the multimedia screen: please see
the equipment instructions.

- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);
- the road markings are irregular or difficult to distinguish (e.g. partially erased,
excessive spacing, distorted road surface, etc.) ;
- being dazzled (glaring sun, lights of vehicles travelling in the opposite direction
