He does all this fun stuff:

Drives 54 on the highway to make his next charging station
In 30F weather has heater shut off
Partial charge at supercharge station takes an hour
Sat in the car for half an hour with heat on low setting to "condition the battery pack"
Car shut down on exit ramp, gets towed to charging station

Sounds like cold weather and electric cars don't mix well...
