There is a reason you don't see many/any in colder climates.

Range drops to nothing as soon as you need electric heat.
I'm in a cold climate. There are tons of them here. If you can keep them plugged in, you can set the climate control to allow "shore power" to heat the car. Then when you drive off it's already warm and you're just maintaining the temp. If it's not plugged in and you need to warm with 100% battery power, you're going to have a limited range (Volt not withstanding).
