In the normal summer I would go about 9 miles and use 10-11 EV miles. When I go 9 miles now I use about almost double that. Is this normal for those who have owned the car longer and more experience driving in different climates?

I know to expect less in cold, but how much less is expected?

Heat can consume up to 6kw/450wh-mi about 12 miles or so

further in cold weather there is voltage drop, the a123 pack does not have active heating (just cooling).

Turn your engine on to preserve the battery and get better/quicker etc heat.
