After about 5 minutes of no cabin heat and only seat heat it becomes unbearable. Mind you I was not dressed in my best winter gear but I also think it's crazy to get completely dressed up is arctic survival gear to get in a $35,000 car to drive home 10Km from work.
I agree with you - Unless you have experienced these severe temperature It' hard to understand.
I have discussed winter driving with my dealer here in Blainville –
I also discussed this with a couple of other I Miev owners at the St Jerome Ecological Transportation Day.
Both have experienced some winter driving up here last winter
They also believe in pre-heating & getting supplementary heating for the cabin would extend their winter driving range
The understanding I had was that you would get about 60 % of your normal range because of all the factors involved, - Heating included
I’ve been getting around 100km – 130 km these last few weeks
So I imagine winter would be 60 –75 km approximately
I will soon find out
