Selecting the right driving mode makes it possible to optimise energy consumption. Eco mode slightly reduces the performance of the air conditioning and also saves some energy when accelerating. Furthermore, all ID. models have a particularly clever system on board – the Eco Assistant, which analyses navigation data and road signs. When the car is approaching a zone that requires a slower speed – such as a town, roundabout or corner – the system indicates that the driver should take their foot off the accelerator pedal. The Eco Assistant also automatically increases regeneration when practical and possible.
If you park up at your holiday destination and switch to hired bikes or e-scooters, you can save even more energy. In larger cities, it is possible to leave the car at a Park and Ride location with charging stations. This way, you no longer need to search for a parking place, and you get a better impression of the country and its people.
