Electric vehicle range could theoretically grow through the use of bigger batteries, but the Volvo Range Assistant app is focused on taking a different approach to increase driving efficiency. The app works by allowing for over-the-air updates for the brand's fully electric vehicles in order to make improvements to the smart battery management system and regeneration performance. This would also include a smart timer that could precondition the batteries prior to driving for maximum performance enhancement.
The Volvo Range Assistant app is intended to be integrated right into the Android-powered infotainment system in the brand's latest and upcoming vehicles. The interface would help drivers better understand what they can do to conserve energy in real-time for the longest range possible when behind the wheel and more.
