Electric Car Range Suffers in the Cold: Why it Happens and Whatís Being Done About it


Quote:
Recently the New York Times and American electric car maker Tesla got in a highly publicized war of words over a review of the Model S electric car. Amongst other contentious issues, the range of the vehicle didnít meet the Timesí writers expectations.

Tesla, as well as throngs of alternative fuel fans, were quick to point out that any hybrid or electric vehicle tested in the cold will suffer from lower performance.

Almost all batteries will suffer similar side effects in the cold, but unlike in your laptop or phone, the change in a carís range could be the difference between making it to your destinationÖ or waiting for AAA.
