Temperature tool for EV Range

Learn how hot and cold temperatures affect your EVs range.

How do extreme temperatures affect my EV’s range?

The distance you can travel on a single charge will change in cold or hot temperatures. This is because your vehicle’s heating or cooling systems draw from the same battery. Following an analysis of 4,200 connected EVs and 5.2 million trips, Geotab has mapped out the impact temperature has on day-to-day EV range. Understanding expected range helps to ensure you have the right vehicle for the job in any temperature.

Did you know the ideal operating temperature for EVs is 21.5 C?

Our analysis shows the ideal operating temperature to get the most range out of your EV is 21.5 C. At this temperature, EVs are achieving on average 115% above their rated range. The farther above or below the optimal temperature, the more range is lost.
