Nevertheless, the range when buying an e-car is still a big issue. After all: As a mobilizer for commuters, e-cars are already good. Some are also fit for the long haul because they can be charged quickly.
Kia e Soul

If you keep the Kia e-Soul permanently at 130 km/h, you won’t go 300 kilometers with a full battery.

But what if the mother-in-law asks for a visit at the other end of the country at the weekend? Or even the annual holiday in a country that is not necessarily neighboring is due? Then the size of the battery shouldn’t force the driver to take a charging break every 200 kilometers. In order to save electricity, special e-car tires are already available that reduce rolling resistance.
At high speeds, however, the following rule applies: wind resistance is the enemy of movement! The faster a car is traveling on the freeway, the more the invisible wall in front of the windscreen eats away at our energy. It is so necessary for arriving if you don’t want to take a charging break on the way.
Especially with electric cars, the range is extremely dependent on the speed. From Tempo 80 the consumption curve goes up dramatically. And at 130 km/h? AUTO BILD sent 28 modern electric cars on long-distance journeys – from super sports cars to small cars. Here is the result:
