Researchers have found a way to overcome the challenges that befall EVs in hot and cold conditions

When the weather swings from hot to cold, we typically activate heating and cooling systems to stay comfortable on the road. But here’s the catch: these energy-intensive systems can reduce the range of electric vehicles by as much as 40 per cent. To tackle this challenge, researchers at Birmingham University have developed a solution to enhance the comfort of long-distance travel for electric car drivers.

This system, called e-Thermal bank, is separate from the main EV battery and combines a chemical heat pump with microwave energy to produce heating or cooling on demand.
