Only the most (fool)hardy EV folks go without heat.  The bleary-eyed zealots
use electric heaters that reduce range.  More rational folks like me use
propane, gasoline or diesel.  Or a combination. Not to worry.  Soccer mom can
put away her scraper.

For both AC and heat the EV is even better than a gas car.  With the vehicle
still hooked to the charger, the heat or AC can be activated (automatically,
remotely or manually) BEFORE starting the trip so that the climate is just
right when you start out.  It costs you nothing in range.

 Neon John brought forth on stone tablets:

Now that last is a great idea.  When I was driving my VW van in the
Inland Northwest in the winter, the propane-fired catalytic heater was
way too small to help the helpless hot air heater from the engine.  But
an electric pre-heat would be a good start.  Are the EV motors so
efficient that they produce no useful heat?
