- Take extra care planning your journey if you drive an EV
- Batteries do not work as efficiently in cold weather and therefore the range will be reduced. Estimates vary from 30% to 50% reduction, once temperatures drop below freezing
- Using lights and the heater more than usual will further reduce the range
- Keep your battery as fully charged as possible and if you have any doubts about the available range being insufficient to either reach your destination or a charging point on route do not set off on your journey.
We recommend completing our ‘Driving Electric Vehicles’ e-learner, which you can access via the app or hub.
