Just a couple of questions about EV battery range. A friend mentioned that you have to be very careful using air conditioning or heating when you have an EV, because if you have one of these on all the time, it might reduce the range of the EV by as much as 50%!
Is this likely, or is the use of air conditioning or heating a fairly minor issue with regard to range?
Another question, this morning it's reported that a major holdup on the motorway means that cars have been stuck in a queue for as long as 2 hours. How do you think this would impact on battery range assuming that you only have to travel, say, 30km? Is it almost equivalent to driving at a normal speed for two hours...the thought of this would worry me a little if I was in a queue for 2 hours in my EV!
