1. Speed Matters

When you drive a gas-powered vehicle on a highway, going too fast can burn more fuel than you would at a slower pace. The same is true for electric cars. At higher speeds, the battery life of your car diminishes quickly. Slowing down can make your battery last much longer and may even save you from a speeding ticket.

2. Plan Ahead

If you are planning on making a long road trip, make note of all the possible charging stations on the way. There are a variety of resources on the internet and several phone apps that can help you find the best charging stations. Instead of stressing as your battery dies, you’ll be able to charge up at one of the stations you found and can enjoy the open road.

3. Regular Maintenance

Although electric vehicles do not require the same intensive maintenance that gas-powered vehicles need, they still need to be properly cared for. Your battery will last longer and your car will run more efficiently if you keep up with regularly scheduled maintenance. Doing things like tire pressure checks, tire rotation, and battery pack replacement can all make a big difference.

Driving an electric car has many benefits, and following these tips for driving an electric car can help you enjoy these benefits. Eliminate the stress of battery life and focus on enjoying your vehicle. Ease your worries even more and contact us at Schumacher Insurance Agency for information on insuring your vehicle.
