Yes, a battery powered heater is not very efficient. I wonder if any company is looking at using the residual heat from the battery itself to warm the cab, and best of all putting more insulation in vehicles (would be good for both summer and winter).

More insulation = more weight = less efficient.

Cold climates are just not conducive to EVs that might be used outside of a city at the moment.   If youíre only doing city driving, then itís not as much of a factor.  But this is one reason that this truck (or any EV) will not be appealing for people in rural areas.  This will be the truck of soccer-moms sitting in parking lots beside other soccer momís Ford Excursions.
