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?! :smile2:

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.

Same here and I drove up my frozen 500 foot rising incline driveway this weekend with tires and ADSR like I was on dry pavement. I couldn’t get a friends front wheel drive car with similar all seasons even 40 foot up. havent even needed winter tires in multiple 6 inch snow falls here.

I placed cardboard over the hoodscoop and windshield wipers if leaving the car out during significant snow. I noticed a loud exhaust fan noise coming from the passenger side in front of the windshield. Assuming some sort of exhaust from battery or heater? Figured do not want snow obstructing it. So i remove the cardboard and snow b4 preconditioning or camper/pet mode
