Just imagine: sustainable driving, easy charging, access to all environmental zones, low cost and ready for the future. These are just some of the benefits of driving electric and choosing to be a responsible mobility choice. We would be happy to tell you more about the convenience of electric driving in the Carver.
Wherever you are, the Carver can easily be electrically charged anywhere. Depending on the type of Carver, the charging time of a full battery is between 3.45-5 hours. If you find an 80% battery sufficient, you are ready to go after 3-4 hours. You can monitor the charging status through the dashboard display.
Charging with the 230V plug
The Carver’s battery can easily be electrically charged at home with the 230v plug. The charging cord is located on the back of the Carver, which you can plug into a normal wall outlet. The Carver cannot drive when the charging cord is plugged in.
Charging at a charging station
Are you on the road or don’t have access to an outlet at home? Then the battery can also be charged at a charging station using an adapter cable.
The range of the Carver, depending on the type, is 100-130 km. As with all batteries, the actual range may vary. The actual range is influenced by, among other things, the loading weight, your driving style and the weather conditions. These factors can influence the energy consumption of the electric motor.
Driving style and traffic situation
Your driving style and traffic conditions can reduce your actual range. For example, driving at high speeds costs more energy and the battery will drain faster. Of course it is great to drive at full speed in the Carver. If you want to get as many kilometres out of your battery charge as possible, it’s better to drive a bit slower. Also factors like lots of braking, heavy loading weights, tyre pressure, the road surface and the use of ventilators increase the battery’s energy consumption.
Colder weather conditions affect the energy consumption of the battery. At lower temperatures, a battery is less able to retain energy. This can result in a shorter driving range in winter than in summer.
Charging by braking
Did you know that the Carver can recharge itself by braking? This is also known as regenerative braking. In an electric vehicle, it is not always necessary to use the brake pedal to brake. Braking can also be done by simply releasing the gas pedal, the speed will gradually decrease. As soon as you release the gas pedal, the electric motor automatically brakes and energy is recovered. Braking with the brake pedal is only necessary in emergency situations or to bring the Carver to a complete stop. This way, you can get even more miles out of the Carver’s range. Another advantage is that the brakes wear less quickly.
