Electric Car The km of Opel Corsa-e Mokka-e
Electric car, the km of Opel Corsa-e Mokka-e Opel‘s online simulator allows you to know in real time the range of the Mokka-e SUV and the compact Corsa-e, based on the different parameters with which the real distance is defined.
Whether it is a car with a traditional internal combustion engine or 100% electric drive, range and fuel consumption are influenced by driving style, speed, outside temperature and use of air conditioning. In the case of an electric vehicle, a small part of the energy can also be recovered during deceleration or braking but especially when facing long descents.

Also on electric vehicles, the problem of air conditioning can be overcome by remote pre-conditioning via the App, when the car is still being charged.
With a range of 324 km for the Opel Mokka-e and 337 km for the Opel Corsa-e, driving as prescribed according to the WLTP cycle, these cars easily cover the commute to work. The autonomy may vary, as for a vehicle with an internal combustion engine.
To keep the mileage under control, Opel provides a practical and fun online simulator to become more familiar with the different parameters involved.
Electric car range Opel Corsa-e and Mokka-e as it changes with driving style
The range of an electric car depends on the driving style, favored by a quiet drive that contrasts with a more sporty dynamic style. Accelerating smoothly and exploiting the recovery of braking energy can help to achieve greater overall range. The WLTP cycle does not provide for the use of mode B with greater energy recovery in deceleration so that, through a careful driving style, it is possible to obtain greater overall autonomy than those obtained in the WLTP cycle.
Speed also has a significant impact, as is to be expected. By increasing the average speed compared to that prescribed in the WLTP cycle, the range of the electric vehicle is reduced accordingly. Maintaining a constant and reduced speed compared to what is foreseen by the official cycle allows to cover distances higher than those obtained in the cycle itself. On the motorway it is advisable not to exceed 120 km / h if you are not in a hurry.
Electric car range vs temperature in the WLPT cycle
The value of the external temperature plays a further important role on the range of electric cars. In the WLTP cycle it is defined at 23 ° C. External temperatures higher or lower than the standard one have an effect on autonomy, with an effect that can be measured through the simulator.
The WLTP cycle requires that the internal air conditioning is not used, as well as the heating of the seats, so the activation of these systems has an influence on the overall range, as can be seen on the Opel simulator.

The ideal cabin temperature can be set remotely when the car is still charging
Air conditioning the car in advance remotely to the desired temperature, with the car connected to the recharge, therefore represents one of the most efficient ways to increase range, especially in the winter season.
On the Corsa-e and Mokka-e in this regard we have a heat pump air conditioning system, more efficient in terms of energy consumption than traditional systems. After setting the different parameters as desired, the Opel simulator provides a clear indication of the overall range with a fully charged battery.
