Also with the latest over the air Tesla update, to deal with that particualar issue, owners have the option to have their car preheat so the windows, doors, door handles are thawed out when they want to drive the car during an extreme freezing winter event. While at the same time, no matter how cold it is, with an Ev, there is no issue of 'cranking' the car, since the cold does not impact the ability to just 'start'. Noted by people all over the coldest parts of the world, and EV is their best option in extreme temperatures. Plugged in or not the owner can decide if the car warms itself from the grid or not.

Re: "Teslas are .... "

Very few ICE cars will struggle to start in sub zero temps, assuming the battery is not old, and not a single one of them will see anything close to the ~50% range reduction that EVERY EV suffers.

Like many, when it's cold outside my heater is kicking in hard the entire time I am driving, and I have front and rear seat warmers going, because I can.....with maybe a 2% hit on FE and subsequent range. Try that with any EV, in addition to the many other compromises you pay oh so much for.

And bloggin, no thoughts about the sales issues Tesla is having huh.
LOL
