Sound like problem of not having enough power, but too much. It's only a problem for people with fast charger at home. For the rest of us, using level 1 or level 2 to heat up at home, while limiting charging current, would avoid the problem. By the time we drive to a fast charging station, the battery would warm up enough anyway.


I can't say about other cars, but the Tesla battery pack is pretty massive and takes quite some time to fully warm up. So there are pros and cons. Cold running and charging is clearly not a pro.

That said, I have complete confidence that Tesla has protection of the battery covered. The data collected on charging shows the batteries have a very long life even under conditions they used to tell you to avoid unless required, like charging to 100% every time or running down close to 0%. When I saw the data posted by Tesla I was amazed. The cycle counts they were measuring data on where in the range of 500,000 miles.
