Impact on outside temperature barely repesented in ABRP?


Two Tesla 3 owners told me, that in winter their M-3 would lose roughly 30% in range compared to summer time. 


As one can enter outside temperature in ABRP, I assumed, this would be taken into account. Strangely though, there's barely any effect? 


Let's look at two examples, both with M-3 LR AWD 19", going from Salzburg (AT) to Riva del Garda (IT): 


1. 20°C outside temperature: 4h17 (thereof 8 min. charging from 33-54%) with 11% remaining charge at destination: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=6886b16e-2291-4592-b639-7c5005284b4b


2. -10°C outside temperature: 4h22 (thereof 12 min charging from 26-59%) with 11% remaining charge at destination https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=9bbf8583-3d61-4960-b46b-5419dcbbbaec 



So, is ABRP too optimistic for driving at negative temperatures or is it really not that bad? 

Many thanks!

Hallo Florian

As I know ABRP doesn’t yet consider the influence of the battery temperature of the efficiency of power consumption, but it already tracks your battery temperature if you use Live Data.

ABRP uses always the environmental temperature for calculating air drag which has a influence of power consumption.
