I was literally reading this article right before switching to this forum. Here's your answer:
The range loss due to cold is nearly the same for EVs vs ICEs. It's the heater use that causes all the extra range loss.
This is what I had read: https://www.fuelecon...ldweather.shtml
Interesting. Honestly I never paid attention to my ICE's reduced efficiency in my winters which are mild compared to other areas. Not sure why but in the new toy I quickly noticed a 14 mile range recently with temps in low 30's vs the 18 I usually got with slightly warmer temps in the 40's to mid 50's.
Ah, that explains how I get such a narrow range of EV miles, winter vs. summer, of 19 to 29, compared to others' reported ranges. In the winter (there's snow on the ground here now) I'm mostly using only the steering wheel heater. In the summer I usually have the A/C on. Maybe I've seen 17 once, but never 30 or more.
So 19 is your Winter minimum EV range?
