The published consumption (l/100km and Wh/km), emissions (g/km) and kilometre (km) range figures are estimates only. Actual figures will vary as they are dependent on many factors, including without limitation: your vehicle's manufactured capabilities, vehicles type Pure EV or PHEV, individual driving style, road and traffic conditions, environmental conditions, fuel quality, a vehicle’s or battery’s condition, load and use. Extra features and accessories (eg: equipment, wheels or tyres used etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and can also affect the consumption, emission, range and performance values of a vehicle. CO₂ emissions can also be generated at the power source when vehicles are being recharged, unless 100% renewable energy is used. Generally, consumption, emissions, kilometre range and charging times will vary from the published figures in real world Australian driving and charging conditions.
The specified charging outputs and times (hour/minutes) are dependent on various factors: in general, the charging output and time can vary due to physical and chemical limits, depending on factors such as the available output of the country-specific energy infrastructure, the customer's own domestic installation, the temperature, interior pre-conditioning and charging status, as well as the age of the battery. Charging times may therefore be significantly higher than those specified. To achieve the optimum value of the specified AC charging time (AC = Alternating current) for a charge status increase from 5 to 80%, as well as a battery temperature of 30°–35°C. The charging status when commencing charging must not exceed 5%. For physical and chemical reasons, the charging speed decreases as the battery approaches its full capacity. Therefore, it usually makes sense to use AC charging to charge the battery up to 80% or up to the required range. When charging in a domestic environment, AC charging (AC = alternating current) is recommended. Using an (AC) industrial electrical outlet will result in improved efficiency and a much shorter charging time compared to using a household socket.
Published figures should only be used for the purpose of comparison between Pure EV and PHEV charging accessories. Please contact and consult with your Vehicle's Manufacturer to obtain specific information in regards to compatibility, charge times, charging functionality, methods of use and features to your specific vehicle.
