For those who drive in parts of the country with snowy winter weather, having a vehicle with a snow mode option is an advantage. But this technology isn't always available, even on newer model cars.
Tesla does not offer a snow mode that you can engage in. But the vehicles are designed to automatically limit the power to the wheels once traction has been detected to slip.
Tesla's battery can last for over 48 hours with the heater on, providing a reliable power source in extreme situations.
Cold climates can impact Tesla battery life, draining it faster and affecting the regenerative braking system. Charging overnight and preheating the car with the mobile app can help optimize performance in the cold.
Tesla vehicles can last over 300,000 miles before needing a battery replacement, with some exceeding 500,000 miles. The company offers an impressive battery warranty of eight years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Cold temperatures will undoubtedly impact a Tesla's driving and battery life, so plan your routes and your charging schedule accordingly. Drive safe!
