EQ 006 – How do EVs heat the cabin in winter? Heat pump, or not?

From EV-olution.

If you ever wondered how an electric car creates heat for the cabin in the winter, then this video should be of interest to you. Is it worth having a heat pump in an electric car? What is a PTC Heater? There are three general types of heating in an electric car and in this video I give a brief overview of all three, and give examples of some of the EVs that use them.
