Test drive yesterday; autonation Tempe AZ -- 7/25, in the heat of the afternoon around 3pm; high temp yesterday was 101. The car said 104. It wasn't particularly hot; we are into "monsoonal" weather patterns now.
Had never driven one before...
the battery was nearly 100% charged.
(they had several, by the way; maybe 5 Ss and one SL; apparently they imported a bunch from OR)
The car was sitting baking in the sun, quite possibly all day.
The saleman brought it up front to us, and the AC was running then for about 5 minutes while he went over various topics.
The drive consisted of about 3-4 miles driving on mostly arterial (i.e 40-45mph) and two miles back on freeway. Afterwards we were inside car for another 5-10 minutes (i.e. not moving much)
In all the ac was "on" for about 1/2 hour. As far as i could tell it was on "max" the whole time.
We both thought the car never reach a comfortable temperature. it felt cool when i held up my hand to the vent, just not enough i guess.
My wife really wants av EV but we were both put off by prospect of having an uncomfortable car.
