There is one grave mistake. If one side is lying much more than other side. Then "in somewhere in the middle" is actually very far from truth. Western people usually doesn't comprehend how big russian lie could be. Putin and Lavrov are like Goebbels: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

As you are using miles, then i can assume you are from US. You generally don't understand what cold weather means there. It means 5-10 F for months. Things go very ugly for lithium batteries when temperature drops below 15F. And referenced webpage doesn't mention any temperature. There is noted cold being below freezing point.

It's not the problem with engine being cold. The real problem is caused by battery not generating enough power when temperature is low. And modern electric cars do loose half of the battery capacity in cold climate. And you need to keep your car passenger compartment heated too, which means less energy for driving.
