The car industry and many Americans are focusing on Electric Vehicles as the future of American Automative; however many questions and barriers remain such as the efficiency of the batteries and the energy source for charging those batteries.
While the car industry look for big answers to these questions, some are looking towards simple solutions.
Running the auxiliary functions of your EV consumes serious amounts of power. Things like the stereo, seat warmers, and interior lights consume moderate amounts of energy, but the real killer is heating and air conditioning.
Here’s an example: a Tesla Model S 90D expects a range of 522KMs on a hot summer’s day. However, by running the air conditioner that figure plummets to 486KMs – nearly a 10% reduction. Using the heater during the winter has a similar effect.
10% Power Saving
Using ceramic window tint can reject up to 85% of solar heat from entering your car during the summer and will help retain heat in the winter. This reduces the load on your AC and heater units, making them last longer, and giving you back 10% of your EV’s range.
