"The UK does not utilise air conditioning to any great extent and the power requirements of an EV would be less and more manageable than if the UK regularly saw heat waves for months in the summer and switched to having air con units as standard."

Here you are conflating technologies here. The more modest temperature differentials that seem likely in the UK should be compatible with heat pump systems rather than gas cycle refrigeration - much more energy efficient.
