If you drive an electric car, the cold weather could affect how far you're able to drive.

Researchers say that means your vehicle has to charge more frequently, and you're at risk of being stranded with a dead battery.
Here in Houston, we rarely see temperatures quite that low, but it's a reminder that your electric car could be affected by the upcoming dip in temperatures.
