From an SAIC GM press release
On February 7, the Automobile Association of America (AAA) released the findings of a study involving five electric vehicles that confirms that freezing winter temperatures substantially reduce an EV's driving range.
AAA's research shows that, on average, the range of an electric car drops by 41% when temperatures fall to 20 degrees Fahrenheit (-6 Celsius).
While most modern-day electric cars are capable of keeping their battery pack within a pre-determined temperature bracket, range decreases mostly because owners turn the heater on full to stay warm, according to the study.
The same study concluded electric cars’ driving range drops by 17% when it's 95 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius) outside and motorists use the air conditioning.
Rather than avoiding electric cars, AAA advises EV owners who live in areas with extreme weather to plan ahead in finding the location of charging stations.
AAA also advises motorists to park their EV in a garage if possible, and heat or cool the cabin while their car is still plugged.
