Here's another quote in the article where they're speaking to the American Chemical Society....

"When the battery is used to power a car (discharge mode), lithium ions move out of the graphite anode and cross the electrolyte toward the cathode....lithium atoms that are intercalated in the graphite are oxidized at the anode, which leaves free electrons behind that can travel through an electric circuit.” An electrolyte, by the way, is a gel or liquid that can basically carry electric charge via ions. When the temperature is cold, these chemical reactions are slowed in both directions."

"During colder temperatures, EV batteries do not charge as fast, are less efficient, and will be more affected by electric functions within the car like heating, regenerative braking or seat warming. Why is this the case? Unlike a typical combustion engine-powered car, an EV relies on a battery."

Again... learn to read the article before angrily responding and looking incredibly stupid.

They don't do well in cold temps. It's an issue that a lot of the auto industry is now looking at.


Edit: so absolutely none of you dumbfucks read articles or work in the auto industry.

So I was just tutoring some kids for the first time today and we tried out colab. I signed in with my Gmail account (no credit card info attached to it) and we were able to start coding immediately so I'd assume the free tier is fine. We were doing a computer vision project as well, so computationally, it wasn't nothing.
