Do you or your drivers ever worry about running out of battery on your electric vehicle (EV) before reaching your destination or the next charging station? This is a common concern among EV drivers known as range anxiety. It refers to the fear of running out of charge before reaching the destination or the next charging station.

That is one of the reasons why we developed the “Make My Day” unique AI algorithm – that automatically creates the best route for drivers, based on their departure and destination.
Make my day uses smart charging technology to optimize charging schedules based on factors such as time of day, grid demand, and weather conditions.

The common reasons for having range anxiety:

Battery range

The most obvious factor that contributes to range anxiety is the limited range of EV batteries. In most car models, the EV range is not exactly as mentioned for the driver, because the battery range is not precise. Make My Day’s app can predict the battery range and has a highly accurate battery consumption prediction to ensure efficient travel.

Charging Infrastructure

Finding charging stations on the way on long-distance routes can be very challenging for EV drivers. This can make it difficult for drivers to plan their trips and increase their anxiety about running out of charge before reaching their destination.

Make My Day app provides drivers with a smart route based on the comprehensive database we have of charging stations along the way. The app shows the driver all the charging points that the driver will go through the way, based on the distance to the destination, the driver’s EV model, and the battery level.

Charging time

The time it takes to charge an EV can affect the driver’s arrival at the destination and contributes to his range anxiety. Fast charging stations can charge a vehicle to 80% in as little as 30 minutes, while slow charging stations can charge to 80% in several hours.

Based on the unique data we have, the app calculates the way to the destination and decides what charging stations are the best for this route, how long it will take to change, and what will be the cost of it. The app will also provide information on the type of charging stations available along the route, including fast charging and slow charging options, so the driver can see exactly the plan for his route without worrying about getting in time to his destination.

In conclusion, if you are looking to reduce range anxiety, we have the smartest solution for you. The app builds the best route for the driver, with no worries about finding a charging station, how much time the EV charging will take, or what is the real number of batteries left.
