Most EV owners and prospective buyers are well aware of the fact that driving an electric vehicle in the winter can significantly reduce its range. However, drivers who don’t have access to a heated garage could, at least in theory, be taken aback by trying to charge their battery-powered vehicle at a very cold temperature. This is demonstrated by experiments using a Tesla Model 3. .

An intriguing winter experiment can be seen in the corresponding YouTube videosUltimately, it took about 45 minutes for the EV to start charging. Until then, the energy from the supercharger was used to heat the battery pack to the correct temperature. It then took another 45 minutes to charge the electric sedan from 35% to 90%. Overall, the Tesla Model 3 Performance performed quite well in these frigid temperatures, but the test also highlights the importance of preconditioning the battery before visiting the Tesla Supercharger in the winter.
