My door is "welded" to the body sometimes during cold slaps. It was the rubber seal around the door that would stick. Some cars, the door handle.

We tested server disc arrays in a booth; sometimes way below freezing to get things to fail. We used it for testing boards, servers, etc. for failed units from customers. We duplicated the system, ran test until the failure occurred.
The server manufacturing had a booth the size of a car they used for entire systems - they tested before shipment. Tesla should be looking into one for their Q & A and build it into their prototype testing.

I know there are several theories on why batteries do worse in cold weather. I lean toward the theory that a portion of batteries energy comes from the environment. It would be possible to over come the cold problem but will need an additional energy source to warm the batteries.

Tesla prototype testing..........

They build them and sell them and let the stupid buyers do the prototype testing.

When Porsche and Audi release their electric cars, i am sure Tesla will be a thing of the past.

wouldn't it be cheaper to just truck a couple up to alaska for the winter? Or if you're one of those phony eco-religion slurping moron liberals, just send it to miami...same thing in their diseased minds...

They wouldn't leave California for testing.

All within the realm of research go drive a tesla or any high end electric. If you dont like it (at least a little) you are just being salty.

Quick as hell, quiet, and cheap to operate.

So a Tesla needs global warming to function properly.

Got it

Where does the electricity come from to operate it? Nuclear, Coal, Hydro, Wind?
Mostly coal. Figure out the CO2 emissions required to recharge a Tesla, and you will realize its allot..
Then, how do we make the magical Lithium Ion battery's? Hmm, no environmental impact there, lol.
What do we do when LioN battery's die? Junkyard, thats what as they have not perfected a recycling , yet.
The End result is pretty nice, but there is still energy being used to make it run.

How much did this study cost AAA? Most people living in colder climates would tell you that batteries donít work very well as it gets colder and will lose their stored energy quicker as it gets colder.

Makes you wonder why some people put batteries in freezer/fridge..

In a statement, Tesla disputed the AAA results. The company said that based on data collected from its cars on the road, ďthe average Model S customer doesnít experience anywhere near that decrease in range.Ē The company said the range dropped by roughly 1 per cent at 95 degrees, but it would not release a percentage for cold weather.
Me thinks Tesla is a climate denier.

Cold weather driving requires a heat source to keep occupants comfortable. It's a "free" bi-product for ICE vehicles. EV's need toasters for people and batteries. Ever watch your electric meter on your house when you run anything using a heating element?

I assume someone is working on some sort of heat pump HVAC for EVs. If not, they should have started with that.

I don't think EV development is wrong, it was just rolled out way before it makes fiscal sense for the general public.
