Interesting read. I'm coming from posting about how inefficient my ID3 is in the cold. It seems the battery heater comes on every time the car is started when the temperature is below 8°C.
This gives very low efficiency figures on journeys of less than half an hour, maybe longer.
I had a Niro for just over a year and it was much more efficient on those shorter runs and as I rarely needed to charge the Niro while away from home I preferred it not to waste energy on heating the battery.

Maybe a setting on the dash would be needed to switch on heating to the battery when making longer runs.
