When it comes to driving and maintaining an EV, there are a few key factors to keep in mind. Taking care of the battery is absolutely critical to keeping the vehicle in top condition. Unlike fuel-based vehicles, which drivers often let get close to an empty tank before refilling, it is not best practice to let an EV battery get too close to zero charge. At the same time, it’s also not best to charge an EV battery to 100% charge very often. Ideally, EV batteries will be kept at a charge of around 20-80% as much as possible.
To help preserve the battery and boost range, drivers may want to keep their speed under 60 mph when they can, avoid areas with heavy traffic or steep hills, travel light, time the battery charge, reduce AC and heater usage and not leave EVs plugged in unnecessarily.
