Drive slowly with a light foot.Just wondering what the recommendation is for driving in snow in an EV. In an ICE is drive slowly in a high gear, but you can't do that when you don't have any gears! Any tips?
So D mode might be better than B mode?Driving on snow in the ID.3
Collecting my kona this week and a whole load of snow...
The big difference from ICE is the regen acts on only the powered wheels, so just the front 2 wheels on most EVs. So if there's a risk of a 2-wheel skid, you may want to select N and then the braking will not use regen at all, instead all 4 discs/drums will be used.
My 3 series was surprisingly good in snow the stability control kept everything point the right direction very well. I was genuinely surprised how well it worked the first time I had to drive it in snow. The rub is that it did such a good job it's a real surprise on the few occasions when it doesn't cope. I could understand that might lead to overconfidence followed by a nasty surprise for that subset of the population who seem to feel immortal as soon as they climb inside a motorised steel box.They have difficulty going in straight lines. Ask BMW drivers?
