As the manufacturer of the Family Cargo Bike, we understand that the range of an electric Family Cargo Bike may suffer during winter when temperatures drop. In this article, we’ll share some practical tips to help you extend the range of your e-trike and ensure longer enjoyment on cold winter rides.
To keep the battery warm:
Cold temperatures can affect battery performance and capacity. When parking your electric Family Cargo Bike, try to keep it indoors in a warm place, or use a vehicle cover to protect the battery from cold weather. Before riding, warm up the electric Family Cargo Bike for a period of time in advance to allow the battery to adapt to a better working temperature.
Reduce Electric Assist Use:
In cold weather, the range of the electric Family Cargo Bike can be challenged. In order to extend the cruising range, you can try to reduce the frequency of use of electric assistance or reduce the power output of the auxiliary gear. This reduces battery consumption and increases riding range.
Pay attention to the charging frequency:
In cold temperatures, the charging efficiency of the battery may decrease. Therefore, when using the electric Family Cargo Bike in winter, it is recommended to charge it more frequently to ensure that the battery is always fully charged. Try to avoid draining the battery completely, as it may be more difficult to recharge in cold temperatures.
Choose your route carefully:
When riding in winter, flat and relatively short routes can be chosen to reduce the need for electric assistance. Avoid excessive climbing or challenging road conditions, which can reduce battery consumption and extend cruising range.
Adjust tire pressure:
Properly adjusting tire pressure on your Electric Family Cargo Bike can improve riding comfort and efficiency. Make sure your tires are inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended range to reduce rolling resistance and improve mileage.
When riding an electric Family Cargo Bike in winter, the cruising range of the electric tricycle can be extended by keeping the battery warm, reducing the use of electric assistance, paying attention to the frequency of charging, choosing suitable routes, and adjusting tire pressure. These simple but useful tips will help you get the most out of your winter rides without worrying about running low on your battery.
