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;
- electrical accessories and equip-
ment;
- vehicle loading;
- tyres;
