Over on TorqueNews.com, I wrote an article to bring a little brevity to the electric car debate. It was based on data from a Canadian fleet management company which manages several Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt cars for various fleets and a few private owners. It showed range losses in the electric vehicles (EV) during temperature drops.
Needless to say, it’s been both a popular and controversial subject. I thought I’d point you to it from here in case you’ve missed it as I know that CarNewsCafe has several EV enthusiasts in its readership. The information is not meant to detract from EVs as a vehicle type, but to point out one of their weaknesses to potential buyers who may live outside of the Southern California “Goldilocks Zone” for EV ownership.
