It is a common misperception that electric vehicles (EVs) “can’t handle” the winter months. EVs can still take you where you want to go – even in the cold. Just look at Norway. They have the highest adoption rate for EVs and are known for their extreme subzero temperatures.
Also, according to fueleconomy.gov, gasoline-fueled cars’ mileage can drop 22% on short trips with temps lower than 20°F. That isn’t much different than the 31% to 34% that some EVs or hybrids can lose. And with simple steps like preheating the vehicle while plugged in or using the fuel economy mode, you can extend an EV battery’s life.
So, drive electric – even in the winter, and enjoy.
