That was a 120Ah i3.
My assumption had been that if driven continuously, the battery comes up to temperature, so the greatest impact to range would be in the early miles.
But in this test, lower and highet range vehicles had mostly similar decreases percentage-wise, so that assumption is incorrect.
It was mentioned that they charged more slowly in the cold, but also that the vehicles were driven directly to the charger to begin their sessions for this part of the test. So can I conclude that the batteries stayed relatively cold despite just having been driven for 2+ hours?
Also, if they were in a garage overnight but not preconditioned, though began the test at 100%, I'm curious not only about the temperature inside overnight (why else would they bother to mention that), but whether the batteries retained any latent heat from charging.
Winter conditions for me is temps in the 40°F range as an extreme, but this is interesting all the same.
