Things I Learned this Week

Among the things I learned this week:
* Electric vehicle range can be reduced by 57 percent depending on the temperature: “The average EV battery range in AAA’s test was 105 miles at 75°F, but dropped 57 percent to 43 miles when the temperature was held steady at 20°F. Warm temperatures were less stressful on battery range, but still delivered a lower average of 69 miles per full charge at 95°F.” (Courtesy: AAA)

* Of 3858 Chinese P2P lender CEOs, 266 have fled China. (Courtesy: The Economist)

* Insurance technology funding patterns. (Courtesy: CB Insights)
