The already limited range of electric vehicles is additionally reduced through the thermal conditioning of the passenger compartment. Due to the vehicle mass’ high thermal storage capacity the energy necessary for heating up and cooling of the passenger compartment is comparatively high. Thus, RLI developed a simulation model for quantifying potential range gains through thermal pre-conditioning of the passenger compartment.
