Tesla Owner Stranded at Charging Station on Christmas Eve After Cold Weather Paralyzes Battery

For pious members of the Greta Thunberg church of climatism, this is the uncomfortable and unsayable truth. It’s the elephant in the room: Tesla’s electric cars aren’t as ‘green’ as people think. In fact, they are not green at all. The grid which charges their batteries is mostly powered by ‘fossil fuel’ hydrocarbons, and the batteries which run them are manufactured with some of the most destructive and unethical processes imaginable. Tesla cars create pollution and carbon emissions in ways which are routinely overlooked by the green press, WEF Schwabians, consumers and investors.

And yet, all of these contradictions are only the tip of a much larger iceberg. Electric vehicles continue to fail on even the most basic of practical functions and user considerations. Unless you only plan to travel a minimum distance and stay within your local area, then problems are to be expected. For instance, if there is any technical problem with the charging grid, then drivers will be stranded and forced to incur an endless array of expenses and inconveniences.

This is only the beginning…

Zero Hedge reports…

Besides freezing door handles, Tesla owners who braved the cold this Christmas weekend were met with ‘winter range anxiety.’ As we explained last week, cold weather will degrade battery performance. At least one video went viral on Christmas Eve of a person whose Model S wouldn’t charge in the cold at a Supercharger station.

Domenick Nati, 44, a resident of Lynchburg, Virginia, rolled into a Supercharger station Saturday afternoon with 19 miles left of charge. The Tesla’s dashboard showed outside temperatures were 19 degrees Fahrenheit. He made a video about his awful experience over the last 24 hours.

In a video posted on TikTok, Nati said battery issues began on Friday when his Tesla wouldn’t warm up so it could charge. He tried charging at his house and a Supercharger station, but nothing seemed to work. In a last-ditch effort, he went to Supercharger station on Christmas Eve, where he experienced the same issues.

Nati shows in the video that a Tesla alert pops up when he plugs the car into a Supercharger stall. It reads, “Battering is heating — Keep charge cable inserted.”

He timestamped the moment he plugged in the vehicle at 1:11 pm. One hour later, he showed the same message with 19 miles range, which meant the car didn’t charge. Then two hours later, he showed the same alert and no charge again.

“Two hours went by and not much changed. 

“It was very slow and the numbers got lower as the temperature dropped. Eventually, it stopped charging altogether,” he told Bussiness Insider

Nati abandoned the Tesla at the Supercharger station, fearing it would run out of juice. He canceled his Christmas plans because it was the only car he had, and adding Tesla customer support and or roadside assistance wasn’t to help him troubleshoot the problem.

The short video had more than 5,000 comments and went viral on TikTok with thousands of likes.
