How To Get the Best Efficiency On An Electric Two-Wheeler

Electric Vehicles have ushered in a new era of mobility. The way we commute is getting transformed thanks to electric two-wheelers, which provide environmentally friendly transportation with lesser operating costs and zero emissions. While EVs have a lot of advantages for the good of the environment, most EV owners often suffer from range anxiety. Maximising the efficiency and range of your electric two-wheeler can go a long way in soothing those anxious nerves. In this article, we will shed some light on how you can ride your electric two-wheeler efficiently, so that it takes you farther for every unit of electricity.

Choose the right EV

To choose the right electric two-wheeler is the first, and most important step in obtaining maximum efficiency. Technological advancements have helped manufacturers develop EV models that maximise energy efficiency and go longer for a given amount of electric charge. Understand your needs and shortlist options that will suit you the best. Research and test ride all the options, paying close attention to the range per charge and the efficiency figures of the model. Also see if the EV offers regenerative braking and riding modes. These features will help you get maximum efficiency on each charge. A little time spent selecting the ideal bike can significantly improve your overall experience. Always go with an electric vehicle from a reputable manufacturer, so that the quality of its components, including battery and software is always top notch.

Be gentle on the throttle

The goal is to accelerate gradually and smoothly. Avoid the urge to quickly turn the throttle as it increases the discharge rate and uses more energy. Instead, take it gently at first and increase your EV’s speed gradually. You will be astonished by how much this easy change will increase the range and life of your battery.

Keep your speed stable

Strive to keep your speed stable. Efficiency may suffer from frequent changes between high and low speeds. Rather than depending exclusively on braking, gradually lower your speed if you foresee a stop, speed bump, or obstacle up ahead.

Reduce Idle Time

It's best to switch off your EV whenever you stop for a longer period to save energy. The vehicle’s efficiency can be significantly impacted by this small change, especially on longer rides.

Optimise tyre pressure

Efficiency is directly impacted by tyre pressure, so it's critical to pay attention to tyre pressure. To ascertain the suggested tyre pressure, consult the owner's manual or the manufacturer's instructions. Reduced efficiency is the result of underinflated tyres which causes increased rolling resistance. To ensure optimum performance, check tyre pressure frequently and make appropriate adjustments.

Minimise aerodynamic drag

You encounter wind resistance as you ride which requires the vehicle to expend more energy to move. This phenomenon is called aerodynamic drag. The more the drag, the more power will be required by the vehicle to move forward. Vehicle’s efficiency can be significantly increased by reducing aerodynamic drag. Here is how you can slip through the air more efficiently:

  • Streamlined accessory installation: Refrain from adding extraneous, wind-resistant accessories. Keep your EV streamlined and sleek. Use mirrors and accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Right body position: Your posture has an impact on how much wind resistance you experience. Try to tuck your elbows and knees in while riding to lower your overall profile. Improperly wearing your gear, like unzipped jackets add to the wind resistance too.

Battery Management

For maximum efficiency, the battery must be used as effectively as possible. Consider the following battery management tips:

  • Proper charging and discharging:

Charge and discharge the battery according to the manufacturer's instructions. The battery's performance can be negatively affected by excessive charging or draining. Aim for a charging schedule that maintains the battery's recommended operating range.

  • Regular maintenance

By carrying out routine maintenance, you can keep the battery in excellent condition. Check all the connections, make sure everything is clean, and take immediate care of any problems or warning signs. A battery that has been properly maintained will operate consistently and effectively.

Utilise energy-saving features

Many electric two-wheelers have energy-saving features that are intended to increase efficiency. These functions include power management settings or eco-modes that tweak the vehicle’s performance to save energy. When appropriate, such as during leisurely rides or when navigating traffic-ridden areas, switch on these modes. There are also more aggressive regen modes on vehicles that can amplify the effectiveness of regenerative braking. These can be used in stop-go traffic, downward slopes etc. to regenerate power into the battery. Utilising these energy-saving features can increase the battery efficiency by a good percentage.

Always keep in mind that efficiency is a combination of various factors, and that individual outcomes may differ. You will need to apply one of more of the techniques mentioned above basis your needs and riding style.
