3. Keep your vehicle plugged in on extreme cold or hot days
In addition to the benefits of preconditioning before your trip, automakers recommend vehicles are plugged in during very hot or very cold days when the vehicle is not in use.
4. Use the eco mode
Every EV has a slightly different function to their eco mode, but generally they all work to reduce power consumption and increase mileage by reducing the energy supply to the drive motor and high energy consumption features such as cabin heaters.
5. Check your tire pressure
Tire pressure drops as the ambient temperature falls, leading to greater rolling resistance and reduced mileage range.
6. Know where your fast chargers are
Cold batteries have a greater resistance to charging, meaning that EVs charge slower in low temperatures.
