Do electric cars have good air conditioning?
If electric cars don’t have an internal combustion engine to power the HVAC system, do they still have air conditioning?
Answer provided by
Yes, electric cars have air conditioning systems just like gas-powered cars, but they will be powered by an electric battery rather than an engine.
It should be noted that just like how running your AC on a hot summer day can eat into your gas mileage, the same is true for your electric car’s range.
Other conditions that will impact the range of your electric car include:
- Cold temperatures
- Driving at high speeds
- Accelerating quickly
