A Tesla is nicer to drive than an M3.
Ha! Ha! Ha! You can't compare a Tesla to what is the benchmark to automotive excellence that is the M3...
The Tesla has exactly 2 things going for it: torque and the fact that it's an EV. This makes it popular and gives it a party trick (insane mode) but doesn't do much for driving enjoyment.
People who actually know and enjoy cars care about things like engine sound, steering feedback, torque delivery, shifter feel (yes, manual transmissions still exist) and a zillion little things that make some cars special and others not so much. I'm sure the Tesla is a fine ride but it sounds very boring to trot around in silence with nothing to do (no transmission) other than play with the iPad glued to the dashboard.
No wonder EV proponents naturally gravitate towards the self-driving car argument. EV cars are boring as hell....
And you have it completely the wrong way around on snow handling. EVs are out in the snow when ICE cars are stuck. It's the low end torque and the extra weight.
Actually, no. Snow and ice tend to be slippery so you don't actually want a lot of torque going to the wheels because that makes them slip. In general, you want weight over the driving wheels, good winter tires and the ability to control your cars gear, throttle and clutch precisely. For most of these things the EVs are not a good fit...
A Nissan Leaf is nicer to drive than a Nissan Versa.
And you have it completely the wrong way around on snow handling. EVs are out in the snow when ICE cars are stuck. It's the low end torque and the extra weight. Don't bother arguing the point, you'll find out if you google.
Biofuels are irrelevant (except for pork barrelling). Virtually all ICE cars run fossil fuels. But when I said in all ways, I clearly didn't just mean the global warming effect. I meant more generally that ICE cars are oily, sooty things.
