Is The Tesla Model 3 Good In The Snow? How Tesla's AWD Works
The Tesla Model 3 Mid-Range and Long Range AWD both come with all-season tires. The Model 3 Performance comes with summer tires. Either way, ideally you'll want winter tires for snow driving. Tesla offers various options through its website for 18, 19, and 20-inch wheels with winter tire pairings. This video will discuss the advantages and drawbacks of each tire selection, as well as other options.
The AWD system consists of two independent electric motors, each sending power through open differentials to an individual axle (both front and back). There are also differences in ground clearance between the various model 3 variants, which will be discussed. Slip start and track mode will also be tested. How well will the Model 3 handle snow?
