Re: AC effective in hot weather? Clarity EV

Multiple studies have concluded that there isn't enough of the battery raw materials and mining infrastructure to convert all of society's driving to EV only, even for relatively small markets like the UK by itself. The biggest environmental bang for the buck of scarce resource is to go hybrid or P...

Re: AC effective in hot weather? Clarity EV

yep,
No problem at all with our Vortex Blue/Grey interior even when well into the 90's.

Re: EV Charge range

The range reported by Honda is based on a specific set of tests (as dictated by the EPA) performed under laboratory conditions. Different driving styles, speed, weather and other factors will all influence the range an EV can get. Enjoy the "bonus" range while the weather is good. Not sure where yo ...

Re: Full Electric Availability

I've yet to fast charge, from the spec's it says 80%, so I should use that in my planning (?) (200 mile drive w 5000+ ft elevation change). Thank you I've fast charged 3 times, so can give a little insight. First time was at a Greenlots unit. I didn't really need to charge, but it was at a Kia deal...

Re: Tint or one-way film for trunk window?

I was going to post that as a suggestion, but no personal experience If it were me, I'd give something like this a shot. No glue and removable: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B073TVRQ5D/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_K7olDb4WW05T Not sure if you were thinking of doing both the clear back seat window and the ti...

Re: (EV?) power used by Air Conditioning

Clarity Electric has a heat pump (but maybe resistive as a supplement?) Fan motors are not an insignificant draw on their own, and when heating/cooling, both the cabin fan and the heat pump fan are pulling juice. As one of those weird quirks, I often see less estimated range loss for climate control...

Re: (EV?) power used by Air Conditioning

Perhaps a bit more detail would help.
Was this during a charging session? Pre-conditioning? or??

Pre-conditioning the BEV in the winter will see an initial 7 kW draw, that will taper during the 30 minutes it runs.

Re: Decreased Full Charge Range

Re the LEAF and degradation. There is no other EV made that suffers the same degree of degradation. Nissan has chosen (and stuck with) a battery system with no active thermal management. The only thing they do to manage the excess heat that quickly degrades batteries is reduce charging rates once th...

Re: Decreased Full Charge Range

The range estimate when fully charges is based on recent driving habits/conditions. How many miles are you actually driving between charges? If you don't do so at least occasionally, let the SOC get down to 20% or less. If you can time it to have just a few miles remaining before charging, that may ...
