Can the Tesla battery survive the winter in Canada? There are places that get to -40c regularly with blizzard & ice conditions. Can the Tesla line hold up for this? The biggest complaint I hear about EV in general is that 'they couldn't survive our winter'. So, I ask the big guns, "Can they?"
- I love promoting EVs. I love the idea of them, and would consider buying one if they can survive out here. Fuel prices are continually on the rise here ($1.359 / litre or $5.14 / us gallon). Tesla' amazing rise and quality make me want to see it thrive up here too. But could it survive? Have they done testing?
