In electric vehicles, the Air Conditioner feature is a part that consumes a large amount of electricity.
As with combustion engine cars, car air conditioners are quite draining on fuel consumption.
In electric vehicles, the car air conditioner works using a compressor. This compressor is connected to an inverter which draws electrical power from the battery.
The temperature setting is getting colder, the compressor works higher, consuming more electricity as well.
In a place with a tropical climate, the use of Air Conditioner is quite high and the temperature is low, it tends to be more wasteful.
Our team has done some testing. In conditions of 100 percent full battery, the distance that can be achieved ranges from 380 to 430 kilometers depending on the driving mode.
When the car’s air conditioner is turned on with a temperature of 17 degrees Celsius, the mileage indicator on the instrument panel can decrease by 20 to 30 kilometers. The test site is located in an area with a tropical climate.
