Battery Test for Electric Cars
DEKRA’s Battery Test for Electric Cars Lets You Look Beneath the Surface
Learn more about your electric car battery! Our test measures quickly and reliably the remaining capacity of your battery.
Why Should You Know About Your Electric Car Battery’s State of Health?
Just like a smartphone’s battery loses capacity after some time, so does an electric car’s battery.
Why is DEKRA ‘s Test Method Different?
- Driving style: Smooth driving and avoiding aggressive behavior behind the wheel will preserve the battery’s capacity.
- Parking time: If you plan to park your car for longer, you should make sure that the battery’s charging status is in the mid-range. Also, avoid parking your EV in the glaring sun.
- Charging plan: Deep discharging can harm the battery just as much as charging it fully. Also, fast charging slowly deteriorates your battery’s capacity.
