Video (funny): who says EV's are no good in winter?

This is funny. Here's a YouTube vid of a high performance Tango commuter EV, PLOWING through about 3 feet of snow!

LOL! As much weight as those are carrying in batteries they'll sure get the traction, as long as they don't high-center!!!

I didn't realize that anyone was selling/buying those, aren't they in the $80,000 price range?
I bet if you made a electric snow plow vehicle with an insulated battery box an a heater to heat while charging you could do rather well, just get some old fork lift battery packs and an extra heavy frame.

it looks at one point as if the rear wheels actually spin out and lose traction! Funny, I like it.
