New member with ? about EV range
Hello. I purchased a Clairity Plug-in on the first of Sept. Have driven it almost 1500 miles. Very pleased with the comfort, ride, fuel economy and most of the tech features. For the first 1400 miles I was getting over 50 miles EV per charge. Then I took to the dealer to see about a problem with the satellite radio when remote climate control is activated. (This has been addressed in other posts on this forum and the dealer said this is something Honda is working on). While the dealer had the car they replaced the A/C control unit as per a recall and also addressed the fuel range issue. I knew that the the EV plus Hybrid range was not over 500 miles but that was not an issue for me. Since this was fixed however, I am only getting an EV range in the low 40's! Admittedly it is cooler now than in Sept, but it is still in the 50's. If this loss of EV range is due to cooler weather, what is going to happen when the temp is in the 20's?
