Convenience for EV Drivers
Electric vehicles (EVs) are exciting, fun and ridiculously cheap to drive. Not to mention the huge environmental benefits.
But we get it, petrol cars are convenient, they go further, and probably you already own one.
Research shows over 90% of your car trips are less than 90km per day, so an electric car seems like a great idea. But what about those few times where you do need to go the distance?
What use is a car with 150km range if you need to cover 400km when you visit Mum and Dad on the long weekends? How do you avoid a flat battery?
We've been there, we've spent hours planning electric road trips, and still accidentally run our batteries flat at 10 pm in the middle of nowhere. It wasn't fun.
So, we've built Power Trip to make electric vehicle travel easy, convenient and simple for everyone.
What does the app do?
- Predicts your driving range and finds charging stations nearby
You can use Power Trip to estimate the energy consumption between two points on a map and show charging stations and EV-friendly businesses en-route.
This means before you start driving, you can predict how far you can drive before you need to recharge, find places to charge up where you are going, and find cool places to visit while you wait for your car to top up!
- Tracks your battery performance and shows your actual driving range
You can connect to your car's battery and monitor your progress against the apps predicted driving range.
Predictions are only as good as the maths that drives them and lots of things might cause you to drain your battery faster along the way. So, as an extra precaution, Power Trip can monitor your real-time battery status and show your progress on the map.
This feature requires an additional OBD-II device and is currently only available for Nissan Leafs manufactured before 2017.
