2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV: Windows Down
May 31, 2012
Today the temperature in Los Angeles reached 84 degrees. Not sweltering, but hot enough so that things would probably get a bit sticky if you were driving with the windows up and no AC.
I ran an errand in the i MiEV today. Around town, it was fine to keep the windows rolled down, but the errand also involved some freeway travel, and the wind noise can make open windows a pain in this situation. Still, I kept the windows down, since using the AC has a huge impact on the Mitsu's range.
Any electric-car owners out there? How hot does it have to get for you to bite the bullet and clobber your range by using the AC?
