  • Speed: Traveling at higher speeds reduces battery life.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold or hot weather can affect range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous landscapes decrease range.
  • Driving habits: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Feature usage: Climate control and media systems also influence range.

It's important to acknowledge that these are estimations, and your actual driving range may differ. Consider these factors when planning your trip and be ready for potential charging stops.
