    Confused Heat Pump air conditioner VS PTC Heater?

    It seems that there are more and more EV manufacturers choosing heat pump HVAC system for efficient heating in cold winter days. Telsa has cooperated with a China-based compressor manufacturer with the installation of heat pump compressor in its Model Y full electric car. I am still wondering whether the heat pump system performs better than PTC heater in today's battery pack technology. what about the cost of both?

    They are choosing heat pump HVAC system Because compared to another solution PTC air conditioner, the heat pump air conditioner has low energy consumption and has little impact on battery life.
