The Idaho National Lab did some EV testings that included capacity decay. Don't remember the specific pages but here's where to start:
I would expect that the car's internal cooling system should keep the batteries from getting hot - even when your garage is. And, yes - our range (I'm AZ) is much better with the huge number of 70+ degree days.Great video, although lengthy. In short, the key factors discussed are:
* Harder in FL and AZ, but, conversely, range is more limited in cold climates, so pick your poison ;-)
Do you think JLR is aware of this and maybe incorporated solutions into their battery management software?Here's the link to the original article this video is based on
75% as a top limit is a bit extreme, as it's actually "storage" SOC level (best for sitting for a long time).But, most people would be perfectly happy limiting charging to 75% 340+ days a year if only the dumb software made that easy. Because, if you charge to 100% all the time, you may well not even have that extra range available to you a year or two from now when you finally try to take a long trip.
