Hey! first post, don't currently own an EV but am thinking about it. I have watched quite a few videos on YT about the Model 3, and have a few things in my head that is holding me back from spending the money on the car. If i were to get a model 3 it would need to be my only vehicle, financially i would not be able to afford a M3 and a ICE unless the ICE was an absolute beater... But, i live in northern Minnesota where we quite often get weather that's pretty extreme, the worst of which is the month of January where it can be -20F and stay -20F for a month (or more) Sometimes it gets even colder It gets so cold here last year i discovered that there is a software bug in my dodge where if it gets colder that -40F that the temp readout gets stuck at -40F until you disconnect the battery. (Can you believe they never noticed?!) I have seen seen a few YT people testing the M3, in freezing conditions such as 20F or so, and saying they loose about 50% range, and that seems like a lot and it's got me wondering how much range the car looses at -20F. So, my questions to you are: 1. What happens if i drive a M3 to work and it sits in the parking lot at -20F for 8 hours? Will i be able to get in it, warm it up and drive home? At what temperature will the car just not move with a 70% charge? 2. Will letting the battery pack freeze cause accelerated degradation? 3. Will the battery pack burn up it's own energy to keep itself warm? 4. Is the M3 RWD is better than ICE RWD in snowy conditions, since i understand EV's have a better weight distribution, lower center of mass, and lower moment of inertia, i figured maybe RWD EV wouldn't be so bad, is that true?
