Not a Snow Car
We got a once-in-a-decade White Christmas here in the Seattle area, and I learned very quickly that the stock tires just don't make for much of a snow car. The traction control kicked in immediately and I was barely able to get the car going on flat ground.
Fortunately our marina parking lot was mostly vacant and I was able to plug in the L1 charger and let the car get a nice long 24 hour low-power charge while I drove my wife's Toyota RAV4 with its brand new all-weather tires.
I love my Smart ED for commuting, but on the rare occasions I have to climb a snowy hill, an SUV can't be beat. Or, just boots.
Merry Christmas, recent Hanukkah, and emergent Kwanzaa !
