Are EV range figures based on 100% battery?

Hi,

All the articles I read say that electric car batteries should only be charged to 80/85 per cent. Are the published range figures based on 100 per cent or 80 per cent charging?

Thanks, Philip

PS: For me, electric cars will only become realistic when they have a real world range of 600km.

Lot of electric car questions for you...

Is there a map of the electric charging points available to the public in Ireland? Is there an app for this? Which brands sell electric cars that can be charged at home at night-rate electricity charges? Is the battery capacity of electric cars much improved and what range can you expect now as 2019 ends?

Electric or hybrid for me through work?

Hi!

I would like to ask for your help in choosing between a new electric car (price 30,000 Euro) and a hybrid car (price 24,000 Euro), taking into consideration that, due to my workplace, I am exempt from paying the VRT and the VAT. Could you please help me find out the final price I will need to pay for those two types of cars?

Thank you.
