Despite the snow and freezing temperatures, electric vehicles are still gaining momentum in Norway. According to a recent range test conducted by Norwegian automotive magazine Teknikens Varld, the Tesla Model S emerged as the clear victor—beating out 28 other EVs in a 3,000-kilometer trip between Oslo and Nordkapp. The results of this winter range test demonstrated that no matter the climate conditions, electric cars can still travel long distances without needing to recharge. Read on to learn more about how Tesla’s Model S performed and what it means for electric vehicles!
Tesla Model S range in winter
The Tesla Model S has always been a great car in the winter, but this year it has outdone itself. In a recent test in Norway, the Model S achieved an incredible range of 403 miles on a single charge in winter conditions. This is far better than any other electric vehicle on the market and proves that the Model S is the best EV for winter driving.
Of course, part of the reason for the Model S’s excellent range in winter is its large battery pack. But even with a smaller battery, the Model S still outperforms other EVs thanks to its efficient heating system. The heated seats and steering wheel keep passengers comfortable, while the heated windshield and mirrors prevent ice and snow build-up.
So if you’re looking for an electric vehicle that can handle winter driving, the Tesla Model S is your best bet. It’s proven itself to be reliable, efficient, and comfortable in even the harshest conditions.
Other EVs’ ranges in winter
As anyone who has driven an electric car in cold weather knows, range can suffer significantly in colder temperatures. This is due to the fact that battery chemistry doesn’t work as well in the cold, and because heating the cabin uses up extra power.
So how did the Tesla Model S do in Norway’s winter? Surprisingly well, according to a recent test by Norway’s leading consumer magazine, Dinside. The Model S was put through its paces in various winter driving conditions, including extended highway driving at -22 degrees Celsius (-7.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
The results? The Tesla Model S came out on top, with a range of over 400 kilometers (250 miles) in all conditions tested. That’s nearly double the range of some other EVs on the market, which struggled to make it 200 kilometers (125 miles) in the same tests.
So if you’re considering an electric car for winter driving, the Tesla Model S should definitely be at the top of your list.
Why the Tesla Model S beats other EVs in winter
When it comes to electric vehicles (EVs), range is always a major concern. But in winter, when temperatures drop and roads are icy, range becomes an even bigger issue. Fortunately, the Tesla Model S has been designed to excel in winter conditions.
Here are four reasons why the Model S beats other EVs in winter:
1. The Model S has a higher battery capacity than most EVs on the market, which means it can go further on a single charge.
2. The Model S has all-wheel drive, which provides better traction and handling on icy roads.
3. The Model S has heated seats and steering wheel, which keep the driver warm and comfortable in cold weather.
4. The Model S has a built-in cabin air filter, which removes pollutants and allergens from the air, making for a healthier environment inside the car.
