Baby's first snow

So the first snow fall with my new I-Pace made me realize that the hood scoop and the floating rear spoiler that add so much visual pizzazz to the car also make cleaning the snow a wee bit more difficult. But they are worth it IMHO. She is gorgeous, isn't she?!

The pictures really illustrate where the air resistance will change if you have any difficulty clearing out the air flow on the hood and above the rear windshield. You definitely can't simply brush the hood and the roof.
Thanks for the pics. for those of us in snow free zones. Interesting.

Shes a beauty, lovely color underneath all of that snow as well! I also experienced the first snowfall with mine yesterday here in Norway but luckily mine is nicely tucked away in the garage so I saved the brushing

Lucky you. I normally have a sail over the car port in warmer months to save the car from all the leaves and bird poop but take it off in winter cos of the occasional snow that we get.

Car looks great newly glazed in snow. Are you still running the factory tires in these conditions?

Yep, I still have the stock Goodyears. They seem to run fine on snow/ice with no slip so far. We don't get enough snow in DC to justify winter tires.
