How does high temp impact charging eletric cars? (If at all)


Nov 11, 2013
I'm in Tucson where my garage gets above 110 F in the summer. No charging problems at all. Sometimes the car will run the compressor to regulate the battery pack, but I get the same charge rate in my garage no matter what the temp is. At SC In the summer I have not noticed a decline in charge rate on a hot day with a hot car.
