Up to 25 percent deviation: ADAC reveals a strong increase in consumption for electric cars

imagine, you have to refuel your Diesel or gasoline car. At the end of the tank grabs were the gun, aimed it on the floor, a couple of litres in the Gully running, and says: "you need to pay now, but still!" The electric car, there is such a thing actually. Load losses a lot of energy is lost, and the same in several Places: in the upstream electrical installation of the charging station, onboard charger of the vehicle and the traction battery. Therefore, the actually drawn amount of electricity is also higher than the amount of the on-Board computer registered.

electric cars consume up to 25 percent more electricity than the specified

The ADAC has now tested 15 popular electric vehicles and the on-Board computer promised with the actual consumption is compared. The result is sobering and reminds us of variations of petrol and diesel cars: Between 10 and 25 percent more cost, the E-car-owners to arise. ADAC Many electric cars, trick at the point of consumption: The ADAC has uses the by the manufacturer of the onboard computer indicated fuel consumption with the actual compared

The evaluation on the ADAC Ecotest measurements carried out in the frame of the car tests. This means that both the driving profiles as well as the ambient conditions for all measurements are always the same. Were charged the cars at the same AC charging station with a maximum power of 22 kW. "Load losses add up, along with other inaccuracies of the on-Board computers, in part considerably," is to keep the technicians of the ADAC fixed:

  • How should the Tesla Model 3 Long Range nearly 25 percent of the on-Board computer-specify to add the Seat Mii electric almost 21 percent and in the Jaguar i-Pace good 17 percent.
  • "But also the models of ZOE (almost 19 percent), Nissan Leaf (17.6 percent) and VW e-up! (15.6 percent) show a significant increase", so the conclusion of the testers.
  • Only the Kia e-stainless (9.9 percent) to stay below the 10 percent mark. Electrical China-Volvo: Why Audi and BMW in front of the Polestar 2 FOCUS Online-Electric of China to tremble-Volvo: Why Audi and BMW in front of the Polestar 2, must tremble Here, the Auto-Newsletter subscribe

the manufacturer does not have to need more honest information

The on-Board computer shows the E-cars, only the fuel consumption when Driving, the entire power. The Range of E-cars to work, meanwhile, is relatively accurately calculated each of factors, such as the current speed or the outside temperature. The measuring systems in the car are not able to capture the Charging losses incurred. The ADAC calls therefore for greater transparency of the car manufacturers. So you would have to list the amount of the charge losses in the technical specifications. Volkswagen To home via Wallbox power recharge: Volkswagen ID Charger

presented "In the WLTP test procedures are included in the load losses, as well as in the ADAC Ecotest. However, these are not shown separately, but are included in the normal consumption indication. For the manufacturer, it would be easy, in the technical data of the vehicle, the proportion of the load losses separately," said the auto club to FOCUS Online.

The load losses are difficult to determine, since they depend on many factors - for example, the electrical resistance in cables and lines, but also from the outside temperature or condition of the battery. Who wants to recharge an electric car at home should allow for a suitable and secure Wallbox to install. This helps to limit the load losses. "Experience has shown that the load losses are between 10 and 20 percent - depending on the vehicle, and external influences such as temperature or charging technology," said an ADAC spokesman with FOCUS Online.

I Can give a E-car due to more consumption?

If owners of E-cars, claims against the manufacturer, if the consumption is too high, it remains to be seen. In the case of petrol engines and diesel engines, the situation is clear: several courts have decided that motorists must give back to their car when he swallows, in practice, more than claimed by the manufacturer. Apparently, a consumption of at least ten percent as the critical limit in the case-law seems to enforce. The burden of proof is, however, the vehicle owner must provide evidence of the significant increase in consumption with an expert's report.
