I am preparing the November/December edition of the BVS magazine and
would love a front cover picture (portrait format, high resolution,
300DPI minimum) of an EV in the snow.

Ideally it needs to be being driven or with someone standing beside
it/working with it and have space at the top and bottom of the image
for text.

I can't offer any money for using it but of course, as always I'll
send you a copy of the magazine when it is printed. There is a postal
strike in the UK at the moment so it may not arrive until the new year!

Thanks,

Nikki.

The tesla roadster was cold tested in norway recently iirc.
contact Tesla for a press picture of that?. there was plenty of snow

Dan

ps. dpi is not a measure of resolution. pixel count is assuming it's in
focus. you can take any thumbnail picture and call it 300dpi. but you
can't say a 640x480 pixel image is a 5megapixel image and be right.

Hi Nikki,

There are pictures here of us pulling a very large Chevy Suburban back up
onto the road that had slipped over the bank in the snow.
http://www.evparts.com/about/index.php?showimg=images/ourEVs/RoverSnow.jpg
This was on Mingus Mountain above Jerome, Arizona in the winter. Another
time during the winter I used a customer's four wheel drive electric Honda
Civic wagon we had converted to shuttle supplies to the local restaurants
because the delivery trucks could not make it all the way into town because
of the steep snow covered roads. Four wheel drive EVs kick ass in the snow.
The weight for traction combined with low end torque and the ability to
control your RPMs as to not break traction.

Nikki,
We had some flurries last night but not enough to take a picture with. When do you need it? If you can hold out a couple weeks we just might have it. I don't think I took any pics of my truck in the snow last winter.

Would a GE Elec-Trak blowing snow count?

Hi Nikki,

Here are some other EV ideas with a winter/snow/holiday theme that your
readers may enjoy. Feel free to search my website for other keywords to
find additional stuff like this now or in the future. Just include a
photo caption to megawattmotorworks.com for each use.

Thanks,
-Dave
