EPISODE 1: ACCELERATION

Did you know that electric cars weigh more than those with internal combustion engines? It is real. It's crucial to understand this because it has an impact on how we drive, particularly when it comes to accelerating. But don't worry, there is a way to accelerate quickly in an electric car. You ask, what is it? To learn more, you'll have to watch this episode of 'Driving electric like a pro.'

EPISODE 2: CORNERING

The majority of experienced drivers are aware that you must brake to the desired speed before turning. No one wants to brake suddenly and run the risk of their car skidding out of control, so this is for safety reasons. What transpires, though, if you're driving an electric vehicle? In this episode of 'Driving electric like a pro,' Nico Rosberg doesn't hold back when explaining how to turn, and it all revolves around the letter V.

EPISODE 3: PERFECT LINE

What does driving the 'perfect line' mean? It is the fictitious path a car would take when turning or traveling straight down a road. It is not the shortest path around a turn, but one that reduces the amount of time spent in the turn while increasing speed through it. Is that clear? Additionally, it has a lot to do with braking, sharp turns, and thrilling corners. Nico Rosberg, a professional driver, will be the one to explain how to achieve the ideal line in an electric vehicle equipped with SportContact™ 7 tires.

EPISODE 4: BRAKING

Braking in any car is one of the riskier elements of driving. You don’t want to brake too hard when driving around town, but rather brake to give yourself enough distance to slowly and smoothly bring the car to a complete stop. But if you are on the racetrack and your electric car is equipped with SportContact™ 7 tires, then it’s a different story. Watch the next episode as Nico teaches us how to explore the limits of braking safely.
