The other day it was quite cold here. I have nearly 30,000 miles. Just 400 miles short. It is now my third winter and things are not so good. It was 22 F outside the other morning when I left for work. I preheated the car via external power and then did not use any heat except a couple quick defrost blasts to clear the windshield. Other than that I used NO heat. It was COLD. My drive to work is 22 miles each way from drive to parking lot where I park. Cold is a known problem but was not expecting to such a great degree after only 2 years. Without heat I got a grand total of 45 actual miles with the guess o meter showing 2 miles to go. Had I used my heater at all I would not have made it home and if I had driven any faster I would not have made it home. Speed was 55mph each way. Flat ground. This just sucks. Being that I'd have 2 miles left it would not leave enough to be considered reliable in such an environment. I am going to contact Nissan about this issue. If I can't get better I will have to let my Wife drive it locally and I will have to once again resort to diesel to get me to work and back. This just totally sucks. My desire to go completely electric is high but with this I can't yet say it will actually happen. This is the sort of issue that needs to be known. Gas companies will suck it up fast while electric companies will say something must be wrong. I really should get better. I used to get about 65 miles total in the cold using the heat while going to work and back. I can accept that but not 48 miles. Its just too close to the edge that I would get range anxiety. Up to the other day I had not worried at all about range. I was worried the other day. I was ready to call for a tow. Did not need it thankfully but at only 2 miles left it was a close call. Too close. So those battery packs Jack is getting may not be worth any more than $3k. Knowing the cold issues with these cells I would not pay more than $3k for the packs Jack Rickard is getting. I'd more like to spend $2,500 bucks.
