HOW OFTEN DO YOU NEED TO CHARGE AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE?
It all depends on how much you drive—and your driving style. If you drive in an energy-saving way, your Opel electric vehicle could take you around 330 km. On average, people in Germany commute just 20 km to work. If you travel a lot for work, you can always charge the vehicle at night to be ready for the next day. By the way, it is advisable to always keep the battery level between 20 and 80% to preserve the battery.
HOW FAR CAN AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE GO?
As an example, the maximum range of the Vivaro-e as measured by WLTP is up to 330 km*** with a fully charged battery. However, this value may vary in everyday driving and depends on factors such as your personal driving style, the type of route and altitude metres covered, the outside temperature, use of heating and air conditioning and possible additional weight.
Note that the average drive-commute is around 34 kilometres per day and 95% of all everyday trips are shorter than 50 kilometres.
HOW MANY KW CAN AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE STORE?
How much your electric vehicle can charge depends on the capacity of the battery: Opel offers 50 kWh and 75 kWh batteries. The fastest way to refuel them is at a DC fast charging station. But even with AC charging, there are differences in speed depending on the charging station and the battery charge. If the battery is already charged 20–80%, charging is faster. Likewise, if it is not significantly colder or hotter than 20 degrees Celsius.
