    Northern states do a much better job in general of plowing snow and using road salt for icy roads, because they need to. There are no thaws to look forward to in a few days to melt it. As such, the rear wheel of the Aptera should not encounter any more snow than the front wheels on main roads. The side streets that are more narrow with people parked on both sides are the last to get plowed, so that might be the only possible problem if neither a plow or other cars have traveled down it. Usually, that’s only a problem for the first 6 hours after a major (over a foot) snow storm. Good driving in the snow skills help too, which only comes with experience.
