Driving scenario - City

City driving and low average speeds tend to be the most efficient scenarios for electric cars.

Select outdoor temperature


In hotter climates, demands on the battery will be higher if the air conditioning is used and will affect range.

Air conditioning - Off

The use of the air conditioning will place extra loading on the battery in mild and hot temperatures and will affect range.

*WLTP testing is controlled and standardised. The range estimates presented are experimental results and are solely used for illustrative purposes to demonstrate the possible effects of driving style, temperature, air conditioning usage and heat pump availability on range. The range is estimated for an average customer car, without preconditioning, and are derived from testing centre and real-world driving tests performed by Volvo Cars. These outcomes are not guaranteed. Your real-world range outcomes may vary from those above.

​How to maximize your electric car range

Speed and driving style

Just like a combustion vehicle, a more economical driving style will help to increase the range of an electric car. Driving at higher speeds requires more energy, therefore, a smooth driving style at reduced speeds will help to improve overall range. All electric Volvo’s include the ‘Range Assistant’ app, a useful tool to check energy consumption and to help develop a more efficient driving style.

Temperature inside and out

The range of an electric car can be reduced in cold temperatures, as the battery works less efficiently. And an electrical heater uses a lot of energy to warm the cabin. To help preserve your electric range in colder temperatures pre-heat your Volvo remotely via the Volvo App, whilst connected to your wallbox before starting your journey. So that you use the mains, instead of the car battery, to heat the car. And during your journey, the heated seats and steering wheel use much less electrical energy than the heater.

One pedal drive

Also known as ‘regenerative braking’, all fully electric Volvo’s come with one pedal drive as standard. This allows the user to slow down the car when they release the accelerator pedal, acting like a brake (don’t worry, you still get a brake pedal). In doing so, the electric motor within the car performs like an electric generator, helping to recharge the battery every time you slow down.

What does WLTP Electric Car Range mean?

WLTP, short for Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure, Electric Car Range is the estimated distance an electric car can travel on a single charge based on standardised testing.

How long do electric car batteries last?

The lifespan of electric car batteries can vary, but on average, they can last between 8 to 15 years or more, depending on factors such as battery type, usage patterns, charging habits, and environmental conditions.
