BMW i3 Drifts In The Snow – Video
Yes…electric cars can drift:
“First drift experiments with the i3 the first snow of the year. It was hard because it was pretty good grip, because the little snow. Overall it can be said that the car is very difficult to move in the drift, because you can dose the force to the slipping wheels difficulties with the current pedal. But is the cause of the engine responds very quickly to the loss of adhesion. With some practice, but it is to perfect themselves.”
Slightly difficult to make sense of the statements above (translated from German to English via Google Translate), but the gist of it is that the BMW i3 can drift in the snow, but it’s not easy due to the touchy accelerator pedal, lots of grip and intervention from the car’s various systems.
Still, the video is entertaining to watch and it’s obvious the driver has some solid drifting skills.
