Businesses that operate Ford commercial plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) or electric vehicles (EV) are presented with three charging options. At Taw Ford, we provide our business customers with a wide range of services that are designed to help deliver elegant charging solutions and optimal productivity.
If you have any questions about EV or PHEVs and how to charge them, please get in touch with us as soon as you’re ready.
Let’s look at the three main causes of reduced range in EVs.
Heavy acceleration and driving speeds
Rapid and continued acceleration, as well as high-speed driving, represent big drains on battery power.
Climate and temperature
Temperature extremes have a negative impact on range. For instance, during particularly warm weather, air-conditioning usage goes up, resulting in a drain on battery power; and when it’s especially cold, in-cabin heating has a similar effect. Also, during cold temperatures, a battery needs to heat itself in order to work at optimal levels.
The more payload (and crew members) a vehicle carries, the greater the demand on battery power.
If you have any questions regarding Ford Pro Charging or our electric/hybrid vehicles, please get in touch with the Taw Ford team at your earliest convenience.
