Will an EV work in a Canadian winter?

Absolutely. However, just like winter conditions increase fuel consumption in gas and diesel vehicles, extreme cold weather will reduce the range of an EV. That’s why it is recommended to consider a fleet vehicle’s use case based on winter conditions, rather than stated range.
