We love to moan about the weather here in Britain. It’s usually the first thing us Brits talk about. We complain that it’s either too hot or too cold. And then there’s the rain. Always the rain….

But it’s not just us that don’t like the extremes of the weather – your electric car’s battery performs better when the weather is mild too. But fear not lovely electrifiers, because we’ve got together with our friends at Nissan to come up with some brilliant hacks that will help you get the most from your car – whatever the weather!

You will know how your heating bill goes up in winter because you have to use energy to make your home warm. Well, you’ll also need energy to keep your car comfortable. And if you use the power in the battery to do that, it will mean you have less battery charge to drive around, so you will see less range. Which is why you need to get to grips with something called ‘preconditioning’ to get both you and the battery to a comfortable temperature.

Join Nicola as she guides you through all the various ways you can maximise your range in all kinds of weather conditions.
