The owner turned his electric car into a snowmobile

A Canadian named Michael converted the Tesla Model 3 into a hybrid electric vehicle and snowmobile to ride it on a snowy slope. To do this, he secured the support of Mullin Manufacturing, which helped replace the rear wheels with tracks. The car coped with the tests, difficulties arose only on one of the steep tracks.

The basis was taken Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus, which costs about 40 thousand dollars. The power reserve of such an electric vehicle is 409 kilometers, the maximum speed is 255 kilometers per hour, and acceleration from zero to “hundreds” takes 5.6 seconds. The complexity of the project was that after replacing the wheels with tracks, the design of the electric vehicle could withstand the load during extreme descent.

More than 13.7 thousand people watched Michael’s video. In the comments, the blogger is offered new ideas for projects – to make sledges from the Model 3 electric car or install tracks on the Cybertruck pickup.

In different years, the tracks were tried on several Nissan models – for example, the Altima sedan, Murano crossover and Pathfinder SUV. And in the fall of 2018, a Cadillac Brougham 1989 limousine was sold in Canada, the body of which was installed on the platform from the Bombardier SV250 Skidozer.
