What happens when an electric vehicle runs out of battery?

The video, which was posted on the Carwow YouTube channel, shows electric vehicle testing. Among other things, the testers wanted to know how the electric car would behave when its battery was completely discharged.

As part of this rather lengthy video posted on the Carwow YouTube channel, tests have been captured for the auto-certified range for six small electric vehicles. Used: Honda E, Volkswagen e-up !, Peugeot e-208, Vauxhall Corsa-e, Mini Electric and Renault Zoe. However, this was not a theoretical range test, but one that involved driving in the real world and using electric vehicles until they were completely discharged.

The French electric car Renault Zoe won the comparison on the automaker’s certified range, reaching 96 percent of its stated range of 383 km.

Interestingly, the Carwow team tested the Volkswagen e-up !, and not the new VW ID.3, which could have shown a better range of 550 km. I must say that e-up! coped relatively well with its more modern and more expensive rivals.

One of the important tests was the desire to find out how these electric vehicles behaved when the power supply in their batteries was approaching zero. The scenarios for these six electric vehicles were quite similar. Before reaching zero, car systems warned the driver of a low battery. Then, when the cars completely used up their entire charge, the car severely limited the available power, forcing the driver to drive to a “safe place” for further charging.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a financial bubble may appear on the electric car market. This economic term best describes the situation in the market of battery machines. This fact was pointed out by Bloomberg experts.
