The Truth About EVs In Cold Weather And How To Deal With It

Since winter is making its last strike at the Midwest and Northeast this week, it’s a good time to take a look at how cold weather affects electric vehicles. In particular, electric vehicle shoppers are concerned about their range decreasing. This February, AAA released a report detailing just that.


AAA tested five battery electric vehicle models that all bring at least 100 miles of range on a full charge: a 2018 BMW i3, 2018 Chevy Bolt, 2018 Nissan Leaf, 2017 Tesla Model S 75D, 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf. Each of the five cars were fully charged, then run on a dynamometer (a treadmill for cars) six times in different conditions until their batteries were empty. The cars were run twice at three different temperatures: 20 degrees Fahrenheit, 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and 95 degrees Fahrenheit. One run at each temperature was done using climate control, one run was done without.
