Cold weather durability? You what?

EV is so much better during winter. No more starting issues or expecting something to break when the engine finally starts in really cold weather.
It's during winter you see the real benefits of EV. Just being able to heat the car from your mobile is a great advantage...

I should know, having only EVs for 3 winters now and it gets down to -36 Celsius here during winter (yes, that's MINUS 33 Farenheit)

Range(try crossing country with EV).....heating.
Batteries don't typically last as long in cold weather.

You're wrong.
Batteries last long in low temperatures. It's high temperatures that is the problem.

Range? Well, you charge
Cold temp decrease the range of ICE cars as well.
