    The electric motors in the wheels generate a considerable amount of heat to the point they have to be actively cooled. This heat should be more than sufficiant to melt and dissapate the accumulation. Aptera employs an innovative liquid cooling system to keep the wheels at the temperature for optimum performance. Aptera will go through cold, snowy conditions testing. That would be the time to ask this kind of question.

    I can see this as a possible problem for two wheel drive Apteras in such conditions as they would not have a hot motor to melt the accumulation.
