If you take 25%+ below as worse case scenario, you could pick say 15% for NZ. More for Electric

 

 

 

Running your car's air conditioning is the main contributor to reduced fuel economy in hot weather. Its effect depends on a number of factors, such as the outside temperature, humidity, and intensity of the sun. Under very hot conditions, AC use can reduce a conventional vehicle's fuel economy by more than 25%, particularly on short trips.1,2,3 The AC's effect on hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and electric vehicles (EVs) can be even larger on a percentage basis.2

Clawhammer: I would be interested to know how much difference using the A/C or heater on makes to how many kms E.Vs will go. ... In a pure EV there is only one source of power so this must affect Km capacity.

 

My Leaf indicates anything between -1 to -10km range difference, depending on the outside temperature.

 

Going through my first winter with an EV, I certainly noticed the seasonal dip mentioned by flipthefleet.org.

 

EV energy efficiency by season
