ELECTRIC VEHICLE OPERATIONS IN COLD CLIMATE
Ten electric vehicles began service at two locations in Wisconsin at the start of 1983. These vehicles are fiberglass-body and lighter than other electrically-powered passenger cars available. Initial experience shows a substantially lower fuel use as well as higher range than the average EV in the test program sponsored by U.S. Department of Energy. Specific component problems have occurred (e.g., auxilliary battery charge) and are documented, along with the overall record of vehicle operation, including range and energy use.
