Worlds Fastest Street HD Truck
Was reading an article in Car and Driver ragazine at lunch today, and stumbled on this little tidbit. Did you know that a tesla model 3, if you dare to use the heater in the winter to warm yourself, the car only has a range of 173 miles?
Wow! I'll pass on that. That's not far enough for it to be worth a thin dime.
Did you know, that in a gasoline car, if you use the air conditioner, your mileage goes down? lol
EVs have less range in cold weather, they're literally just burning off electricity for heat with resistive heaters, so sure the range is reduced in the cold. But did you know, it costs a fraction per mile to drive, so even with the reduced range, it's still pennies on the dollar to drive, so it really doesn't make a bit of difference that it gets less range in the cold? LOL
Ours is the 320 mile range version, and yes in the winter it's about a 20% efficiency loss. 256 miles is still waaaaay more than my 60 mile round trip commute lol
Oh and did you know, since it just gets plugged in at night, not only am I leaving every morning with a full charge, it's also fully warmed up when I get in the car?
Oh and did you also know, it has active cooling in the summer months, so it's never even hot when I get in the car?
Creature comforts that give a whole new twist to amenities to a daily driver....but I know I know, you just love that sh!tty ol' ranger of yours lol.
