RANGE: UP TO 100 MILES

The manufacturer’s estimated cruising range for the GO-4 EV is a maximum of 100 miles, based on measured range tests at our facility in Manitoba, Canada. We are in the flat prairie terrain, tests were completed in varying temperatures of 35-75F degrees. Actual range will vary. Some of the factors influencing range include driving conditions, terrain, speed, vehicle load, use of air conditioner or heater, tire inflation, acceleration and braking, and battery temperature. Combined these factors can decrease driving range by as much as 50 percent. In fact, battery temperature alone can decrease range by 15 percent in extremely cold conditions.

TYPICAL RANGE SCENARIOS

As an EV user, you can have a great influence on the actual range achieved. Smooth acceleration and minimized use of accessory loads, such as the heater, will greatly increase your range between battery charges. As an example, driving at a constant speed, which puts a stable load on the battery, is much more efficient compared to driving with hard acceleration and braking.

The chart below provides estimates for typical ranges in a variety of driving scenarios

Condition Range
Manufacturer’s estimated cruising range as measured by the test procedure Up to 100 Miles
Careful city driving, no heat or air conditioning. Mild outside temperatures. Normal terrain Up to 100 Miles
Summer driving with AC 55-75 Miles
Winter driving (about 32oF) with heat 55-75 Miles
Extreme terrain, with heat and AC 45-70 Miles

TIPS FOR EXTENDED RANGE

  • Keep tires properly inflated. Low tire pressure reduces range.

  • Avoid unnecessary loads. Weight reduces range.

  • Slow down in wet conditions. Wet and muddy roads increase rolling resistance and decreases range.

  • Lower the heater or AC when cabin reaches a comfortable temperature and recirculate air to maximize efficiency.

  • Using the heater or air conditioning continuously at the highest setting can reduce range by as much as 40 percent.

  • Perform annual battery checks, see owners manual.

  • Balance the battery monthly by allowing the battery to remain plugged in over preferably a long weekend. The on board battery management system continues to balance high and low batteries after the standard charge is completed.

  • Do not leave AC, radio, lights running if not actually needed.

  • Avoid hard acceleration unless required.
