Precautions for using electric vehicles

        The battery rang is affected by the driving habits, vehicle condition, storage condition, charging way and the power battery temperature. There are the good driving ways as below will increase the battery range of the vehicle.


        1)     Reduce vehicle loading: The luggage and cargo are used in the trunk for timely cleaning, which reduces the weight of the vehicle and can effectively save electricity.


        2)     Maintain proper tire pressure: Regularly check the tire pressure. If the tire pressure is too low, it will increase the rolling resistance of the tire and increase the power consumption.


        3)     Smooth start: When the vehicle starts, the power system works less efficiently. Try to avoid starting with a deep depression of the accelerator pedal. You can use the same fuel-saving method of driving a fuel vehicle to drive.


        4)     The vehicle needs to overcome the additional acceleration resistance when accelerating, which will reduce the energy utilization rate, so uniform driving can effectively save power


        5)     Try to avoid sudden braking, turn on energy recovery, and try to choose a higher recovery intensity level: Master the following distance with the car in front, avoid frequent braking, and try to slow down by recovering taxi energy. As long as the vehicle is running and the accelerator pedal is not depressed, the energy recovery brake will reduce the vehicle speed and feed back energy to the power battery.


       6)     Reduce driving resistance: Opening windows at high speeds can significantly increase vehicle wind resistance, resulting in higher power consumption. If it is not necessary, please reduce the driving speed to reduce wind resistance, thereby improving energy efficiency and increasing vehicle mileage.


       Reasonable use of air conditioning: Both cooling and heating air conditioning will accelerate the power consumption of power batteries. Please use the air conditioner when necessary, and open the window to ventilate at low speed. Choose the middle and low gear when you open the air conditioner.

       If you have to wading while driving, in order to avoid damage to the vehicle when wading (for example, the road is flooded), pay attention to the following:


       1)     Before wading, confirm the depth of water accumulation. The water depth must not be higher than the lower edge of the car body. When the water depth is unknown, do not wade.


       2)     When wading, keep at a low speed (vehicle speed must not exceed 10km / h). When wheels on both sides (left and right) pass through the wading area at the same time, do not step on the brake pedal to prevent the vehicle from slipping. At the same time, pay attention to whether the instrument has a fault light on, and drive carefully. If you drive quickly through a long deep water, it may cause damage to automobile components such as motor systems, power battery systems, transmission systems, driving systems, and electrical systems, making the vehicle impossible to drive.


       3)     Please do not stop the car in the water


       4)     Do not wade in salt water. Salt can cause rusting. Rinse all car parts that have come into contact with salt water immediately with fresh water.


       5)     After the vehicle safely passes through the waters, intermittent braking should be performed when traffic conditions permit, in order to eliminate water traces on the brakes and restore the braking effect.


       6)     If the water depth of the vehicle exceeds the lower edge of the body during the wading process, it is recommended that you go to the authorized service provider of Guoji Zhijun to check the vehicle as soon as possible after you leave the water.


       If the vehicle malfunctions during the wading, the instrument fault lamp lights up or collides with the bottom, please park the vehicle in a safe zone and contact the authorized service provider of Guoji Zhijun for maintenance.

       Before charging, please read the relevant operating instructions on the charging device carefully and strictly follow the relevant regulations of the charging station.
