I need four wheels to get through the snow in the two tracks that all of the other cars make. But then it becomes a car and must carry a multitude of airbags and crash testing that none of us really need.

How does the first car ever make the tracks? Do all cars have to have the exact same width track?

You live in snow so you should have a good idea what I am talking about.
.
The first car has a much tougher time of it than the 50th car, or semi, in an hour.
.

Winter roads develop two tracks with a ridge of piled up slush in the center. Changing lanes on a divided highway becomes a maneuver requiring commitment to carve through the slush piles between the lanes and in the center of the new lane. To get across you wait, wait,... Go for it. With a determined input. Now imagine a threewheeler with the rear tire constantly skipping and jittering through the slush ridge. Very dangerous.
.
When there is no snow or ice on the road, I ride my motorcycle at 104 mpg. If I bought a Zero electric moto I would be at 250 mpge. In the winter I need four tires.
