What he is trying to say is that all Battery Electric Vehicles, Hybrids and Plug-in Hybrids don't get as much range in the cold. It's the same issue that smartphones or anything that runs on batteries has.RegGuheert wrote:When it is 10F out and windy, you likely won't make it.
If you start your trip with a full charge, and you have at least 100 miles or so left, you probably won't have to stop and put a little bit of electricity in to make it home, but it is a possibility, so you should be aware of this characteristic of electric cars. I belong to some Canadian LEAF groups, and they don't seem to have a problem with their range in the cold and they drive their LEAFs in weather that is much colder and for a longer time then your area has.
This is an edge case, but if you are not comfortable with that possibility, then you may want to consider a conventional or hybrid vehicle instead.
