Get the most out of your Grandland Plug-in Hybrid by knowing the main impacting factors on range and how to react on them.
Speed is the most impacting factor on the range. Use preferably electric mode at low speed. To optimise your fuel consumption in hybrid mode, charge your battery and benefit of electric energy (more than 35% in road drive average conditions).
Every time you accelerate, you lose energy. And everytime you brake harsh, you need to accelerate again. Smooth accelerations and recuperative braking of your Grandland Plug-in Hybrid can help you to save up to 15% of your electric range.
Thermal comfort & heating
Range difference due to heating/cooling can vary up to 35% between seasons, as the energy is directly taken from the battery. Pre-Conditioning your Grandland Plug-in Hybrid while charging is a great way to preserve your electric range and travel in comfort.
TIP: In all situation, charge your battery as frequently as you can to maximise the use of your Grandland Plug-in Hybrid in electric mode, without any emission.
The displayed range in your Grandland Plug-in Hybrid, even when fully charged, is a prediction based on former driving behaviour.
If you take the range impacting factors (e.g. speed, driving style, thermal comfort) into consideration, the displayed range will adapt to your new driving behaviour.
