  1. General EV Discussion
    I had not been able to make a video in 2 months because work has kept me too busy, but I finally managed to get a new one posted. What are EVs like in the winter?

  2. General EV Discussion

Would I be able to do this reliably in a 24 kWh leaf in the winter, with winter tyres on, even after a few years? Or should I...
