Increasing Vehicle Range with Automotive Window Tint

Updated: Jul 18, 2022

One of the main motivations in buying an electric or hybrid vehicle is efficiency and eco-friendliness. Many consumers do not realize that a factor in how well you eliminate heat will have an impact on how well the range your vehicle is. Using your vehicle's battery exhausts extra power that could be going to the overall effectiveness and efficiency of your vehicle in regards to distance traveled. In a recent study, found here, it shows that these battery using components would include things like lights, sound system and most importantly, the HVAC (Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system. Depending on the vehicle, use of the heating, ventilation and air condition systems can cut your vehicles range and efficiency down 9% - 17%.

Carbon ceramic window tint is a great way to not only lower the temperature in your vehicle and reject harmful UV rays for comfortability, but to also help your vehicle work less to keep a desired temperature in the cabin preventing range decreasing. By managing the amount of heat in your vehicle you can help preserve your vehicle's battery by helping it work less, thus keeping it stronger for longer. Fuel and charge efficiency is dependent on a lot of factors, but overall helping cut down on the energy needed to cool your vehicle by tinting your windows will easily show positive results when it comes to cutting traveling costs and making sure your vehicle performs at the best levels possible.
