It is summer and holidays are one of the main trends of a period where rest and comfort is in the foreground. There are many brands that have been working in different areas to generate the best possible experience for an increasingly demanding audience. Under the premise of moving being sustainable with the environment, the sales of electric vehicles or vehicles have increased the market share. With these guidelines, at SEAT they have been working to give you the best tips of the moment so that your trip be the dream and avoid possible problems.
First of all you must plan the trip, and you must do that with time and thus locate those charging points that will help make your trip the most efficient: “Select a few for possible stops, always taking into account both the rest needs of the driver and the loading of the car”, recommends Josep Bons, Head of Electrical and Electronic Development at SEAT.
The comfort inside the car can also be given by the temperature. Therefore, we recommend that you pre-climate the car little by little and so as not to suppose an excessive expense of the autonomy and battery of the car. With these steps, you will be able to maintain a constant internal temperature of 22ºc. Before leaving we recommend ventilating the interior, so you will avoid that the air conditioning costs you to start.
Charge it completely. Leave the house with the vehicle 100% charged. However, throughout the trip, it is advisable that the load level is always between 30% and 80%. “This will save time at the station as the last phase of charging is the one where more time is invested.” says Bons. To all this, an efficient driving will help the battery to last until the end of the journey.
Finally, an additional tip. Recharging the battery can mean the leisure time you need. So much so, that you should not be aware of the charger during charging and you can take the opportunity to go shopping, walking, sightseeing or going to the beach to sunbathe with your friends.
