5 Electric SUVs Tested In Cold: Real Range And Consumption Results

Inquisitive Norwegian experts from the Norsk elbilforening Association conducted their next experiment. This time they took five popular all-electric SUVs to make comparative road tests in winter conditions.

Winter in Norway is really frosty. So it was interesting to see how the EVs behave in cold and how much their real figures differ from those declared by manufacturers.

Five long-range pure electric SUVs, namely the Audi e-tron 55 qualttro, Kia e-Niro, Jaguar I-Pace EV400, Hyundai Kona Electric and the Tesla Model X, were tested over about 560 miles (900km). The testers took into consideration their driving and fast-charging capabilities, practicality and, what is more interesting to us, driving range and energy consumption.

The Model X is predictable overtakes others in many aspects. The Jaguar I-PACE and Audi e-tron range disappoint a bit. The e-Niro offers a great practicality and an affordable price.
