E-bike range calculator: As far as you come with your electric bike
Roland incense / dpa E-bike range calculator: As far as you come with your electric bike
The Corona crisis has two major winners at mobility: the car and the bike. E-bikes can support ranges and significantly increase the range. But how far you really come? Now there is a calculator.
Not only for leisure outings, but also for the daily routes it is worth knowing the range of his e-bikes. It is important to know which factors affect the battery consumption.
Basically, it can be said that a series of factors are critical to the range of e-bike. This includes the power storage capacity of the battery, as the higher this is, the further can be driven. The capacity is usually at 400 to 500 Wh. According to the manufacturer’s instructions, up to 130 to 200 kilometers can be driven.
For range, battery and engine are crucial
In addition to the battery, the type of engine is crucial. Here is the selection between engines with gearbox or direct drive, whereby direct drive motors can be recharged by the energy recovery when driving. The position of the engine also affects the reach. The medium motors have to be the advantage of energy-saving compared to front or rear motors as the total weight is better distributed.

At this range, a lot of further influencing factors that can reduce this range. For example, a ride in the mountainous terrain or with headwind consumes significantly more battery than a ride in flat regions.
Also to be considered is the total weight that is transported. In addition to the weight of the driver, this also includes the transported luggage or if necessary a trailer. Even a non-optimal tire pressure can reduce the range. Therefore: Check Tire Pressure regularly.

So far they really come
Even before the purchase of an e-bikes, it is important to inform yourself about the required range. A range calculator who provides an assessment regardless of bicycle brands can be found here at the E-Motoren supplier Bosch:
To the range calculator
If you are not sure about the exact use of an e-bike in your everyday life, it makes sense to try different scenarios.
How to increase the range
If you already own an e-bike you can increase the range of your battery with these tips:
- Protect your battery from cold or hot temperatures by taking it into the apartment after turning off the wheel or use a neoprene protection for the battery in winter
- Never unload the battery completely. The optimal battery capacity is between about 30 and 80 percent
- Ideally, use only the original charger
- Check the tire pressure and oil the chain of e-bike regularly
- If possible, switch to low gears or switch the support from the engine on flat tracks

Neither the range calculator nor the on-board computer is really reliable help. – … Neither the range calculator nor the on-board computer is really reliable help. In addition, you should (like the e-car) should recharge the highest over 80% when the battery should be used for several years. Then – in my experience (with 500 Wh and 80% charging) between 50 and 100 km in it.
Really now ?
There are already a whole series of parameters that are responsible here. Driver weight, topography track, speed, self-strampling, etc… It now comes the colder, wet season, because the hype leaves clearly. Next year goes on…
As long as electricity prices in Germany are on average 0.30 cents / kilowatt hour, the question arises, which normal citizens can finance this?? Electromobility -Yes – but it has to fit financially and this is exactly the policy that creates no real incentives !
I meant a battery with 500 Wh, not ah. Swenn 1 kWh 30 cents kotet, you come at 500 Wh from 15 cents (and for up to 100 km).
