Liberals Who Ditch Tesla Should Be Aware Of 'Winter Range Anxiety' Among Other EVs
Elon Musk's acquisition of Twitter and crusade against "defeating" the "woke mind virus" has caused panic among liberal Tesla drivers who now want to sell their electric vehicles. Others progressives waiting for Teslas are canceling orders because they no longer believe in Musk's politics.
Cancelling my @Tesla Model X order that's been unfulfilled for over a year now and selling my TSLA stock. They need a cancel option that simply says "Elon Musk". I won't give my money to someone that no longer shares the same values I hold important. Likely he never held them. pic.twitter.com/yhxSgJUxZw— Tom Kulzer (@tkulzer) December 13, 2022

These progressives who are either selling their Teslas or canceling orders have been engrained by 'woke' culture that fossil fuels are evil and EVs will save the planet from a non-existent climate crisis that is just an idea in their head.
So naturally, these folks will be purchasing other EVs because they now view driving a Tesla as the same as wearing a 'MAGA' hat.
So San Fran residents will now buy tanks to own Musk, while conservatives in Mississippi will buy Teslas to own the libs.— zerohedge (@zerohedge) December 16, 2022
As for climate alarmists' predictions this summer that the world would burn, we have bad news for them as Arctic air poured into the Northern Hemisphere like a wrecking ball. The alarmists blame 'climate change' for every weather phenomenon, but no one bothered to tell them the climate has constantly been changing for millions of years.
A problem that non-Tesla believers could come across is 'winter range anxiety' depending on the EV. According to Recurrent, a research firm that tracks EV battery health, temperatures averaging between 20-30 degrees Fahrenheit will impact vehicle range.
For Teslas, cold weather decreased the Model 3 Long Range's range by -17%, the Model S P100D by -19%, and Model X 75D by -15%. Out of the list, Tesla wasn't the worst.
Some of the worst declines, which many liberals have said they wanted to buy instead of Teslas, include Chevy Bolt by -32%, Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium AWD by -30%, and VW ID.4 -30%.
My pronouns are he/him, I believe in science, and I support Dr. Fauci. @elonmusk’s continued bad actions kept me from buying a @Tesla and now I am ecstatic to have a @UAW-made @chevrolet Bolt EUV in my driveway! pic.twitter.com/8Jj3kLjaEB— Eric Sorensen (@ERICSORENSEN) December 12, 2022
And one of the best EVs to survive cold weather was surprising the Jaguar i-Pace, which only lost -3% of range. Also the Audi e-Tron was -8%.
Liberals ditching their Teslas will discover quickly what winter range anxiety means for their mobility if they go with a Chevy or Ford.
