E-Cars: cold temperatures have measurable effect on battery range – but so does the driving style

A Canadian app developer has conducted thousands of test drives with the all-electric Nissan Leaf to examine the influence of cold temperatures on the range. No doubt, cold temperatures have a measurable negative effect on the range of an electric vehicle. More surprising however is the effect of the driving style on battery range. While the average range during the test rides at 0° C was 102 km, the best driver achieved astonishing 170 km – definitely another proof for the importance of eco-driving in clean, electric vehicles. Here you can find detailed information on the rest rides and results .
