This morning was very strange for So. California in August....it was totally gray and 58F. Super strange, since this weekend is forecasted to be 106-110F!

Kitty II was parked in the garage (garage temp about 75F). Started my car (A/C on set to AUTO 71). Fans kicked on right away :( Crazy with only about 75F, but anyway....I turned the A/C compressor off and just left the climate fan running. Fans stopped right away and "range" increased by almost 20 miles.

I drove almost 7 miles and the range and SOC did not go down by 1 mile or 1%. Y'all are right....A/C has a huge impact on range (and for the fans).

I could not believe that the A/C made such a huge impact on the battery and made the insanely loud fans turn off!

I look forward to December, when our weather cools (sadly Sept, Oct and even Nov are really warm, if not HOT)...I can have some fan free driving!

Happy Monday I-Pace family :)

From my casual observations, I have only heard the fan run when the A/C is on. I live in Northern CA.

I park in the basement of a parking garage at work. The space is well below ground level and stays cool. Charlotte is also notorious for being mid to upper 90s with 99% humidity. When I am heading home for work each day, I turn on the seat coolers, turn off the AC, turn on the recirculating air and head for home. This usually gets me most of the way home on a 20 mile trip without becoming uncomfortable and keeping my car at over 270 miles per charge, actual miles I can drive consistently. AC, she do take a bite of the energy for sure.

Oh my, Deutsch, those are not the kinds of temps you see in Deutschland very often!
Nein, so heiß nicht in Deutschland :)

30-35C (90-95F) is the hottest I have ever experienced in Deutschland, and you would have thought the world was ending, LOL!!

Ugh, the Valley... :p
LOL. Heyyyyyy!!! I'll take our SFV any day over West Side gridlock ;)

We used to live in Westwood and off Sunset Blvd and I graduated from UCLA. NEVER again over the hill; Too much congestion for me, but yeah....you are usually 10-15 degrees cooler in the summer.

LBC is big so not all parts of town is near the water. The beaches are also south facing rather than west facing so maybe that has something to do with it (doesn't get much coastal breeze).
