New data spells doom for the all-electric future of vehicles being pushed by governments around the world.
Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration is determined to advance the global green agenda by forcing Americans to switch to an electric vehicle (EV).
Like other nations’ leaders, Biden plans to phase out gas-powered cars whether taxpayers like it or not.
The push is being driven by claims of tackling so-called “global warming.”
It’s been known for some time that cold weather dramatically reduces the range an EV has per charge.
However, it is being revealed that hot weather can have the same effect.
So if the Democrats’ fear-mongering of “global boiling” were to ever pan out, the “green” EVs we’re all forced to drive would be useless.
A new study suggests that excessive heat can greatly diminish electric vehicle range.
The findings are similar to other studies that show how excessive cold also reduces range.
Thankfully, it seems as though the range is mostly unaffected unless the temperature is in the triple digits.
Seattle-based Recurrent studies and tests thousands of vehicles each year in order to analyze the relationship between batteries and their range.
Its latest data indicates that when things get really hot, EVs could lose almost a third of their stated range.
While Recurrent didn’t name specific manufacturers, it says that some vehicles saw a drop in their range of 31 percent when temperatures climbed above 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius).
It’s significant to note that, this summer, much of the American Southwest has seen temps consistently over 100 degrees.
If you live in Phoenix or Tucson, Arizona, Las Vegas, Nevada, or Las Cruces, New Mexico, prepare to lose 30 percent of your EV’s range through most of the summer.
Recurrent, the company behind the testing, has already shown how freezing cold weather affects EV performance.
Recurrent is the same company that last year found that freezing temperatures have a nearly identical effect.
Both the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Volkswagen ID.4 saw dips in the range of 30 percent when temps dropped below 30 degrees Fahrenheit (-1 degrees Celsius).
At the same time, it’s worth noting that less extreme temperatures exhibit very little influence on battery range.
In many parts of the country, however, it can be below 30 degrees for months during the winter.
EVs are, again, less useful than gas or diesel vehicles in those places.
Not every part of the country has San Francisco’s climate.
