Tips for Using New Energy Vehicles in Winter

Home » Tips for Using New Energy Vehicles in Winter

Today’s new energy vehicles are developing rapidly. For new energy vehicle owners, they not only need to pay attention to the impact of weather changes on their vehicles, but also need to pay more attention to the daily use and maintenance of their vehicles. In the cold winter, low temperature may have a certain impact on battery life and performance.

The three-electric system that appears in new energy vehicles will have many differences in driving habits compared with fuel vehicles. To ensure that your new energy vehicle remains in optimal condition during the winter. We’ve got you covered with a comprehensive winter car guide. Whether it is ensuring battery life, improving energy efficiency, or meeting special challenges in low-temperature environments. We provide you with valuable advice and tips.

New energy vehicles battery use in winter

As one of the most important components of new energy vehicles, power batteries are very sensitive to temperature changes. And the health of the power battery also determines the service life of the new energy vehicle. This makes us pay more attention to the battery when the temperature drops in winter, and winter maintenance is even more important.

Ensuring that your battery remains charged is an important aspect of winter maintenance. In low temperature environments, battery performance may decrease. Therefore charging in time is crucial. And try to charge in a higher temperature environment. During the cold weather of winter, keeping the battery in a warmer environment helps provide better battery performance. It can also improve charging efficiency, save time, and reduce the impact of cold temperatures on the battery.

If your vehicle will be parked for a long time, consider parking in an indoor parking lot to keep it in a warmer environment. To avoid excessive battery discharge and performance loss. Increase the battery life and reduce the loss of cruising range.

Braking System

New energy vehicles usually use electric braking systems, including brake motors and regenerative braking systems. During winter maintenance, you need to regularly check the wear of the brake motor and brake pads. It is very important to maintain the normal working condition of the brake motor. It can maximize the energy recovery function and provide better braking performance.

As with conventional cars, attention needs to be paid to the hydraulic portion of the braking system. Make sure the brake fluid level and quality meet requirements. If abnormal conditions are found, you need to contact the manufacturer or professional technicians for inspection and maintenance in time.

At the same time, the brake system needs to be cleaned regularly. Road conditions in winter are relatively slippery, and road mud and water will be adsorbed on the braking system, affecting braking performance. The brake system needs to be cleaned regularly to keep it working properly. Brake calipers, discs and pads can be cleaned using warm water and an appropriate detergent to remove built-up dirt.

Tire selection

The tire selection of new energy vehicles is not much different from that of traditional vehicles in winter. But what we need to pay attention to is that new energy vehicles are often heavier and have larger torque output. Therefore, the grip requirements on slippery roads are higher. Choosing the right tires with good grip is crucial to the safety and performance of new energy vehicles.

On relatively slippery roads, you need to choose tires with good drainage properties to reduce the risk of skidding when driving in rainy weather. Channels and longitudinal grooves in the tire tread quickly drain water and improve grip.

In the cold winter, you need to choose winter tires. Winter tires use special rubber formula and pattern design. This can provide better grip and control performance and ensure driving safety. But no matter where you are, you need to pay attention to tire wear and check tire pressure regularly. Make sure your tires are in good condition to provide stable traction and handling.

If you’re in extreme snow and ice conditions, you need extra traction. It is necessary to install snow tire chains to enhance the friction between the tires and the ground to improve driving safety.

In winter driving habits, new energy vehicles are not much different from traditional fuel vehicles in the selection and use of systems such as braking and tires. Slippery roads in winter require greater grip and require targeted reinforcement. As for the three-electric system exclusive to new energy vehicles. Exposure to a low temperature environment for a long time will cause irreversible damage to the interior of the battery. You need to pay more attention to your driving habits. At the same time, we conduct regular battery testing to detect unknown hidden dangers. It is conducive to our daily car safety.
