If there’s one thing electric vehicle owners are learning, it is that cold temperatures are likely going to lead to frustration if they don’t take extra special care of their battery powered vehicles.
As we push through the cold that automakers are using as an excuse for poor sales this winter, customers of some companies – notably Tesla – are starting to realize that things are a little bit different with electric vehicles in the winter.
Disgruntled owners of Model 3s have been widespread on social media and online forums, talking about numerous issues they have had with cold weather on their extremely expensive vehicles.
Owners have complained about battery range draining and Model 3 door handles freezing up.
Given that the company can’t physically re-adjust door handles over the air, we’re guessing the fix will wind up being something that puts further pressure on an already drained battery.
It’s Panasonic that manufactures Tesla batteries. It’s not something specific to Tesla. It happens to Chevy with the Bolt and Nissan with the Leaf.
The new formula to combat global air pollution now shows to be a hoax altogether, as batteries on their own are leaving behind a larger carbon footprint to the derailed environment.
