Electric Car High-Speed Travel Guide: How to Save Energy and What to Do When Out of Power


In the world of electric vehicles, embarking on a journey feels like a daunting task, especially during peak travel seasons when charging stations are as coveted as gas pumps. Facing the risk of being stranded due to long queues or inadequate charging facilities can be a real concern for electric car owners. So, how can you save energy while driving at high speeds, and what should you do if you run out of power? Here's a comprehensive guide to spring travel for electric car owners, ensuring a stress-free journey back home!

Electric Car Route Planning: Unlike conventional vehicles, electric cars require careful consideration of charging station distribution along the route.

  1. Optimal Distance Between Charging Stations: When planning your itinerary, ensure that the distance between each charging station does not exceed the vehicle's range. For instance, if your electric car has a range of 300 kilometers, aim to locate charging stations within a 300-kilometer radius along your route.

  2. Utilize Navigation Apps: Popular navigation apps like Amap and Baidu Maps offer features for route planning with consideration for charging stations. You can set charging interval distances, view all charging stations along the route, and plan your journey based on the vehicle's range.

Energy-Saving Tips for Electric Car Driving:

  1. Activate ECO Mode: ECO mode optimizes engine performance by controlling engine speed, reducing unnecessary energy consumption, and ultimately saving battery power.

  2. Enable Regenerative Braking: Regenerative braking allows the electric motor to convert kinetic energy into electrical energy, replenishing the battery while slowing down the vehicle. This feature can significantly increase the vehicle's range, especially in stop-and-go traffic.

  3. Minimize Air Conditioning Usage: Air conditioning is a major energy drain. In situations where battery power is limited, consider using alternative heating methods such as heated steering wheels and seats to conserve energy.

  4. Adjust Driving Habits: Maintain a steady driving speed to minimize energy consumption, avoiding sudden acceleration and heavy braking. Additionally, refrain from opening windows at high speeds to reduce aerodynamic drag and energy loss.

  5. Reduce Load and Check Tire Pressure: Before setting off, minimize the amount of luggage carried to reduce the vehicle's weight. Additionally, ensure that tire pressure is within the recommended range (typically 2.3-2.5 bar) to minimize rolling resistance and energy consumption.

Emergency Measures for Depleted Battery:

  1. Maintain Low-Speed Driving: If your vehicle's battery is running low but still operational, maintain a low-speed driving pace and head to the nearest service area for charging to avoid complete depletion.

  2. Call for Roadside Assistance: In the event of a complete power outage, pull over to the roadside, activate hazard lights, and call for roadside assistance, towing services, or contact the vehicle manufacturer's customer service for support.

  3. Request Mobile Charging Services: Some regions offer mobile charging services where charging vehicles can be dispatched to your location. Contact the service provider for assistance.

  4. Prepare Backup Energy Sources: Having a backup energy source onboard, such as CTECHI's ST2000 or PT2000 portable power stations, can provide emergency power to supplement the vehicle's battery and facilitate travel to the next charging station.

For travelers embarking on electric car journeys, proactive route planning is essential to minimize the risk of mid-journey power depletion. The above guide, curated by CTECHI, aims to equip electric car owners with the knowledge and resources needed for a fully charged and stress-free journey back home. Happy travels!
