Now that the cold weather is here for some, a significant new energy demand could have an impact on the distance expected from a charge.
What type of impact (loss of distance) have you experienced to warm up the battery/car at or below freezing? How long does it take to warm the battery and car when it is that cold? (in an ICE, the heater will push hot air in ~ 4 min; what should I expect in an MS?)
I have heard concerns about vampire loss, (@ 10mile per day) and am wondering if I would be forced to ride in a cold car for a drive home if I were to leave it at the airport for a week.
