To ensure your car always has a minimum charge, you can enable Low Battery Protection in your evPulse dashboard automatic charge settings. With Low Battery Protection enabled, your car will begin to charge automatically if your battery level falls below 20%.
If Low Battery Protection is activated during peak usage hours, your battery will charge only to 20% to ensure you have a minimum charge for unexpected transportation needs and emergencies. The remainder of your charging will be optimized for off-peak hours and your battery will charge to its target level.
Another reason why you may want to enable Low Battery Protection is for battery health. Keeping your charge between 20% - 80% may help extend your EV's battery life. If needed, you can adjust the target battery level from your EV's mobile app.
