Happy new year and welcome back to the official start of the third season of the Fleet FYIs podcast.
When it comes to vehicle range, operating in what are considered to be suboptimal weather conditions has an inevitable and rather significant effect. Now this includes both extreme cold winter conditions as well as scorching hot summer temperatures – for those of you that live in warmer climates, you know that it’s not just ice that can make the roads slick. The cold happens to be a common argument against adopting electric vehicles, as cold winter temperatures affect battery performance and decreases range significantly.
What a lot of people don’t point out, however, is that cold weather has always affected range in internal combustion engines as well.
So that brings up the question, why is the impact on internal combustion engine vehicles range not brought up as often?
