Sensible driving is one of the keys to optimising the range of your vehicle. Thankfully, most modern electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids feature measures to support your driving style to maximise mileage. Plan your journeys sensibly and you can experience the very best from your vehicle’s range. Modern electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids are equipped with a battery warmer, heated steering wheel and heated seats to help you in cold weather.
