There really isn't a minimum gauranteed range. If you switch on the heater and let it sit, the range is zero
Here is what I'd like EPA / Manufacturer to publish. 9 numbers in all.
- City/Highway range (like they do now, but at 100% charge only)
- City/Highway Summer range (with A/C on, 100 F outside, 70 F inside)
- City/Highway Winter range (withe heater on, 32 F outside, 70 F inside)
They need to revise their highway cycle. Make it average about 65 or 70 mph.
Mostly agreed, but for winter range, let's be real and make the temperature 0F
Yeah, 32 deg. should be spring/fall range (winter/rainy season for those of us who live in Mediterranean climates). And maybe we shouldn't stop at 0 deg. for winter. Let's rate the cars at their minimum operating temp or -22 Deg. F. (-30C), whichever is higher, and say what the temp is.
