Just to be clear... are you talking about in an Ampera/Volt?GMG31 said:Despite driving like my nana and turning everything down low my predicted miles when i get in each morning is now only 27. Is this other owner's experience at this time of year?
You can still pre heat when you are not plugged in. At 2C it tends to use 0.7kw for one ten minute Pre Heat so you loose a bit of range. I must say its nice getting into a defrosted warm car with the heated seats already hot in the morning.GMG31 said:I wouldn't leave mine overnight not plugged in even if the battery is fully charged. Plugging it in maintains the battery and allows pre heat the next day. I love pre heat, it definatly saves battery life and getting into a warm de frosted car on a morning is great.
However if I had one gripe about my Ampera is how hard it is to keep warm during the day it takes far too long to warm up by which time I have usually arrived at my destination. I think the Ampera should come with a fleece jacket as standard.
This week has been so cold I have tried running the car on hold during the day to try to get some heat into the cabin but even that isn't good enough
