    Myth: Using features like your aircon, heating, wipers or radio will drain the battery 

    Of those surveyed by Admiral, over two-thirds (67 percent) of people believed that using a vehicle’s heating or wipers could drain an EVs battery quicker.

    While using your radio or windscreen wipers will not have a significant effect on an EV’s battery, using the heating or air conditioning will contribute toward this, however Professor Wells’ highlights that this is not exclusive to EVs.
