The Ford focus electric manual actually has some pretty interesting info. I like this par especially:
"Driving to optimize range between charges
Your range should improve throughout your electric vehicle’s break-in
period. Range, like fuel economy in a standard vehicle, can be
significantly impacted by your driving habits and accessory usage. For
best results, keep in mind these tips:
Tire Inflation: Keep tires properly inflated and only use recommended
Drive Habits: Aggressive driving increases the amount of energy
required to move your vehicle. In general, better range is achieved with
mild to moderate acceleration and deceleration. Also, this vehicle has the
longest range when driving at slower speeds. When practical, driving on
surface streets instead of high speed highways will increase range. Mild
to moderate braking is particularly important since it allows you to
maximize the energy captured by the regenerative braking system.
• Do not carry extra loads
• Be mindful of adding external accessories that may increase
• Observe posted speed limits
• Perform all scheduled maintenance
• Pre-conditioning the vehicle cabin while it is on plug will reduce the
energy expenditure on climate control and improve range. Refer to High
voltage battery in the Maintenance and Specifications chapter."
Whit - what would your best tips be on improving your focus ev driving habits and range?
