3. EV Tip: Plan a More Efficient Route

It may take less time to get to a given destination by driving on the highway, but you can help maximize your car’s operating range by instead choosing a route that allows you to drive steadily at lower speeds. Avoid areas known for heavy traffic.

Traversing steep grades likewise uses added energy, so avoid hilly or mountainous areas if possible. If your EV has a navigation system that can suggest energy-efficient routes, be sure to use it.
