I would want to how the manufacturers claimed EV range is compared to real-world conditions in very cold climates- most (if not all) buyers would too.

I'm sure the mfg's do not want to have to share that information if there is a big difference.

Manufacturers are very up front about range decreasing in the cold. This isn't something they're hiding. It's well-known. Just like traditional fuel economy in an ICE vehicle decreases in winter and steep terrain, so too does range decrease with EVs.

I was in Scandinavia last year and there are an incredible number of EVs there, especially Norway. I recently read an article that said the Tesla Model 3 is currently the best selling car in Norway and Sweden. If EVs do well there, they'll do well here. Our winters are tropical compared with those places.

I'd also expect the car climate to change in 21 years by the 2040 goal. We've seen a large(ish) shift in the industry in the last 20 years. Smaller turbo-charged engines, hybrids, more diesels (though VW kind of shot that one in the foot), 6+ speed transmissions, CVT's, etc. As far as tech and safety, we how have backup cameras as a standard feature and emergency braking sensors will be required in the next few years as well.

21 years from now, I'd expect a lot larger percentage of cars being offered being hybrids (as technology becomes cheaper and more practical for varying car body styles) and electric cars to be a lot more common. While we won't be 100% electric by then, I have no doubts that these technological increases will bring forward a lot of good change for consumers and make our roads a lot safe in doing so.

All very true but a hybrid is not 100% renewable. It would have to be electric only vehicles getting electricity from solar and wind which is a crazy notion.
