Had to drive from home to York then home due to hospital visit and was dreading it but I'm really impressed how PHEV performed 8-)

I have dashcam videos but as they get removed here I will try some pics though they are nowhere near as impressive :?

Temp was -6 (washers froze despite using winter washer fluid), ice under snow, strong winds were blowing drifts off fields and had to turn back almost home due to stuck vehicles blocking road so a 45 min trip took over 2 hours :shock:

Conti Winter tyres never slipped or lost grip at all - been driving LRs for 16 years and never felt this surefooted :mrgreen:

Cool. The drifts were a killer weren't they - that awful wind! I didn't go out for a few days and I have winter tyres!

Yep drifts and stuck vehicles were main problem along with dazzling snow and trying to see road edges. Normally I wouldn't go out but it was emergency and good to know how capable phev is

Another owner says problem he had was deep snow grounds phev and loses traction even with winter tyres
