Most or all buyers in the USA do NOT get a heat pump or heated steering wheel, which makes using the cabin heater a battery eater. It may not hurt the range as much as the cold weather does, but it does hurt. I have a small wool blanket my sister made for our children, who are now all grown up, which I am going to use.

I spent two winters in a 17 year old VW without a heater and the heated seats and a blanket saved me. I also used a winter camping trick and put really hot water in a Nalgene bottle and kept it under the blanket which was the only thing that kept my hands warm. At rest stops I would let the water in the bathroom sink get as hot as it could and re-fill the bottle. It REALLY helps!
