I know, right? What should I do? Drive around in circles for half an hour? And yet electric vehicles are criticized for not being good in cold weather either. What's this? The batteries shouldn't be charged at temps below 20F? And what am I supposed to do when it reaches -40F?!

Now what? Any two seated bicycles with heated seats and handlebars?

So it looks like I need to either get a fuel burning preheater and leave that on for an hour or so before driving in an ICE car or figure out how to insulate the bottom of a Leaf.
