I personally spoke with several Quebecois on the north shore of Saint Lawrence river, and they all told me the EVs were impractical in the winter. 50% of range reduction and difficulties with charging in the snow without a garage. The town of 8,000 people has only three 50 kW DC chargers. Only tourists use EVs. There is a Tesla supercharger in town for the 5-star hotel, so the tourists do occasionally come in Teslas.The locals, however, don’t find EVs practical enough to survive the winter. Being stuck on the road between towns in a winter storm and not having a place to charge the EV is one of the worst things that could happen. Roads do get shutdown during winter storms due to precarious driving conditions in the mountains, so it’s not that rare to have to spend a night away from home because one can’t get home after work if one works in another town. After a night in an EV with the heater on, the EV would be stranded because of no DC chargers available for tens of kilometers.
