  1. Kia Soul EV
    We had our first heavy snow in the London area last night. This morning I pulled onto my mothers driveway, front first, that had about 5cm snow covering. When I tried to reverse off an hour or so later, the Soul just spun the wheels, and the car slid forward!. I tried very light pedal...
  2. General EV Discussion
    Last year we bought our first EV - a Seat Mii electric. I wondered if there are any tips about how best to drive an EV in snow/ice? We live in a remote rural part of Northumberland, UK. Driving any car requires you to drive steadily, not make any sudden steering, accelerating or braking moves...
  3. Volkswagen ID.4
    Just bought a VW id.4 today, arrives next week. It comes with the 20" rims, but we are snowboarder/skiers and so will be on the icy roads all winter up to the ski resorts. Does anyone have any inside information on where to find all season tyres for this rim? We did try to haggle with the...
  4. Kia Niro
    Well today was definitely an experience! On the flat the car handled very well. The ease at which the engine maintains a low speed and (I'm assuming) the weight of the car meant that I could carry on driving consistently and slowly while I could see others in front of me spin their wheels...

    With snow being threatened by all the weather forecasts can anyone with experience of driving a Zoe in the snow pass on their experience/advice? Or should I leave her cosy and dry in the garage?

  9. Tesla Model S
    Hi, Push Button - get Tesla Would be great to get some advice from you guys, I have been a lurker on these forums for a while. I think we will be pushing the button on a Tesla soon, the Jolltax clan and I went to Birmingham Tesla and went for a test drive in an 85D (I think) and were impressed...
  10. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    just wondering what this is like to drive in the snow or on ice. Usually I shove the car into 2nd gear and let the traction of my Diesel engine move the car without applying revs or brakes. (Spent time out in Norway with the Royal Marines so had a bit of training in snow driving) Having never...
