Didnít watch the whole thing but Iíll mention that Iím guessing these tested vehicles are relatively new and as we all know from from rechargeable tools, phones and all that the more itís recharged over time the less charge it will hold and more quickly goes away. Donít know how much a new battery pack change in these cars cost but it will have to be much sooner then one would need a new or rebuilt ICE engine I should think. Thatís a big factor given a car 3 or 4 years plus old. The batteries will not be as strong down the road over time then a combustion engine. Lower temps as mentioned have significant draws of these batteries and not forgetting that having a heavy foot much more quickly shortens the batteries range. Iím not ready to join that club.
