Is it better to park an electric vehicle in the shade or in the sun?

The temperature difference between shadow and full sunlight is too small to have a serious impact on the battery. However, if it is necessary to cool the interior of the vehicle, this requires energy from the battery, which reduces driving range, so it’s best to avoid bright sunlight in summer.
