Energy used for air conditioning and heating prevents us from freezing and sweating inside vehicles. However, without high performance insulation, a lot of energy is released into the environment. This not only harms the environment, but it is also particularly detrimental to the range and service life of the battery in an electric car. va-Q-tec recognized the potential for VIP insulation of electric vehicles at an early stage and insulated the BMW i3 all around with va-Q-pro technology.
The high-performance insulation provides a significantly more comfortable indoor climate at all outside temperatures while also preserving the car‘s battery life and increasing its range. This stand-out feature can especially be seen in cold weather, as the e-car insulated with va-Q-pro can drive about 45 % further than a vehicle without VIP insulation
