There are multiple questions e-car drivers regularly ask themselves, we're here to answer these and provide valuable solutions:
Routeplanning is necessary if you wanna get anywhere safely and in time with an e-car. This needs to account for a number of factors such as the type of vehicle, speed, road topography, weather conditions, loading weight, and so on in order to accurately determine whether and when you have to reload.
The power consumption of e-cars works very different from the way regular cars use fuel. Environmental influences such as slopes and wet roads can have big impacts, rain in particular increases the usage by around 20%. Likewise speed and even heating and air conditioning are also factors to be accounted for.
Once a loading station is reached it has to be unlocked, in some cases this is done automatically, because the station is free. In most cases however you require an Account with the provider or their distribution partners. This can only be done in advance by requesting a personal ID-card or installing and setting up the respective provider's mobile app.
