2. Know your car
It is important to know your electric car’s battery capacity and range to better plan your journeys. It is also useful to know how your driving influences the energy consumption of your electric car, such as hard acceleration or driving at high speed, which can decrease range.

Keeping your electric car’s battery charge at high levels can reduce range anxiety. If you have the opportunity to charge your electric car at home, do so whenever you can, so that you can leave with a fully charged battery.
