Default Chevy Bolt EV vs. Alaskan Winter: There's Only One Winner According to this Owner

A Chevy Bolt EV owner in Alaska took to the car's Facebook forum to share his experiences at temperatures of -33F/-36C. The outcome provides a counterpoint to the popular criticism of electric vehicles in winter conditions.

Mass media outlets don't lend a great deal of coverage to electric vehicles, but when they do it typically trends towards the negative. Range and charging times tend to be the lead topics for criticism, especially when the winter rolls around and lithium-ion batteries lose some of their mojo.

Thankfully, there are plenty of dedicated owners out there willing to share their real-world experiences with highly capable electric cars like the Chevy Bolt EV. Kirk Martakis is one such owner, but he has a distinction that few others can claim: he drives his electric vehicle in the challenging conditions of the Alaskan Range.
