EVs are great but watch the mileage if you use the air or heater, as this can quickly reduce your range. Some people are starting to have second thoughts in Canada about EVs because of this.
The Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus has an EPA-estimated 263 miles of range. However, in the cold weather, its range is significantly reduced. Some tests have shown that the car can only achieve about 200 miles of range in cold weather.
Here is the video of a real world EV trip in Winnipeg in the middle of winter. Watch to the end to see what REAL range is at -30 degees Celsius. We’re sorry to give away the ending, but the Tesla Model 3 runs out of juice after just 109.2 miles. Check out the video to see how it all went down.
While electric vehicles have many advantages over traditional gasoline cars, this is one major downside in countries like Canada. This is due to the fact that EVs rely on battery power to run, and battery power is reduced in cold weather.
I think the main advantage of electric cars is that they are much cheaper to operate than gas-powered cars. Electricity is cheaper than gas, and electric cars don’t have any emissions, so they’re better for the environment.

However, in Canada electric cars have disadvantages due to cold weather. One is that their range is limited compared to gas-powered cars. Another is that they can take a long time to charge in cold weather. And finally, if you use the air conditioner or heater, it will decrease your range. So if you’re considering an electric car, make sure you take all of these factors into account.
