RANGE

THE RANGE OF YOUR ELECTRIC VEHICLE

The range can slow you down when buying your electric vehicle. Users want the manufacturer’s range values to represent their actual use as closely as possible. Factors impacting range, charging, driving tips – we provide you with all the useful and necessary information to guarantee you a serene and pleasant experience on board your PEUGEOT electric car.

FACTORS IMPACTING YOUR VEHICLE’S RANGE

In addition to the level of battery charge your car has, various factors affect your electric vehicle’s range .

SPEED

At 81 mph, the range of a 100% electric vehicle is halved compared to the WLTP-approved range. 

HEATING

The heat released by a combustion engine is reused to heat the vehicle’s interior. An electric motor heats just a little, which is not sufficient to heat the vehicle’s interior, so an additional specific electric heater is therefore necessary.

WEATHER

Regardless of heating or air conditioning, the outside temperature directly affects your vehicle’s range. At 0° degrees, this is reduced by 10%.

TOPOGRAPHY

When ascending, consumption increases and impacts your range. But when descending, regenerative braking lets you recover energy.

Other factors that may impact the range

DRIVING STYLE
Smooth, eco-responsible driving lets you optimise your range. 
TYRE PRESSURE
It is important to check your tyre pressures at least once a month. Check the maximum allowable pressure shown on the side of the tyre because if your tyres are under-inflated, there will be greater tyre resistance, resulting in higher energy consumption. 
PASSENGER COMFORT
Heating and air conditioning can affect 10 - 30% of your battery consumption. On the other hand, the other comfort elements (radio, lights, windscreen wipers, etc.) have very little impact.  
LOAD CARRIED
Driving with a roof-load or an open window increases wind resistance and therefore consumption. A heavy load will also affect the range.  

ADVICE ON OPTIMISING THE RANGE

POWER INDICATOR
Your energy consumption is indicated in real time  on your dashboard to better manage your vehicle’s range. 
ECO-DRIVE MODE
The eco drive mode allows you to make the most of your car’s range. Save energy by reducing engine power and heating. 
REGENERATIVE BRAKING
When you release the accelerator while driving, the electric motor acts as a generator, slowing the vehicle and recovering energy to transmit it to the battery. Brake mode is activated by pushing backwards on the gearbox control lever.

REMOTE COMMANDS
With your smartphone, set the pre-heating of your passenger compartment for your comfort. This function also allows you to preserve your battery-range if the vehicle is being charged. You can also check your vehicle’s range, charge the battery remotely whenever you wish and monitor its progress through the MyPeugeot® App.

CHARGING

Make the most of your electric vehicle’s range by using the numerous charging options available to you to their best advantage.

DISCOVER CHARGING POINTS NEAR YOU

Zap Map are able to provide you with the location of compatible charging points for your electric car. The majority of public charging points in the UK are Type 2 (Mode 3)sockets, which will charge your vehicle at the accelerated charge times listed, depending on the power of the charging point and your on board charger.
