Ever watched a video of someone drifting around in the snow and thought you could do the same? Well, if that’s the case, this clip may provide you with an important reality check: it’s not as easy as it may seem.

We recently stumbled upon this video of Reddit and it shows just how difficult it can be to keep a vehicle under control when trying to slide it along snow and ice-covered roads.

The video opens up by showing a Jeep Grand Cherokee and a BMW 1-Series powersliding around an open-wide carpark clad in a thin dusting of snow. Initially, the driver of the Jeep seems to have quite good control of the SUV, but when threading together a drift, carries too much speed into a drift to the right and slides towards the edge of the parking lot.

Unfortunately for the driver of the Jeep, there weren’t any barriers and the SUV ended up sliding down an embankment and presumably, crashing into a row of trees that are visible.

As the Jeep’s unplanned off-road adventure occurred at relatively slow speed, we hope that no one suffered any injuries. However, pulling the Jeep up the embankment and back onto the parking lot was likely a challenge, due in no small part to how little traction any vehicle trying to recover it would get on the slippery surface.

Ford should be celebrating as the 2021 Mustang Mach-E was recently named the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year.

However, they might want to keep that champagne on ice as they’ve ‘Forded’ up the launch.

Customers who ordered the model were recently treated to a less than welcome e-mail telling them their vehicle has been delayed. The less than informative message said, “To ensure your complete satisfaction, we will require additional time before your Mustang Mach-E is delivered.”

The message didn’t give an explanation for the delay, but multiple members of the Mach-E Forum reported their deliveries had been pushed back by more than a month.

Some of these customers were expecting to pick up their crossover soon and were less than satisfied with the lack of an explanation. Ford eventually addressed the issue in a statement to Electrek which read, “As part of our commitment to delivering high-quality vehicles, we are conducting additional quality checks on several hundred Mustang Mach-E models built before dealer shipments started last month.”

Ford’s Emma Bergg went on to say, “We notified affected customers that they may receive their Mustang Mach-Es on different timing than previously discussed. The team is working to expedite these vehicles, and we hope that customers receive them ahead of targeted dates, providing there are no COVID-19 related transportation delays.”

The statement is still pretty vague and it comes as a report has indicated the Mach-E is suffering from an undisclosed quality issue. Unfortunately, Ford wouldn’t say what they’re looking into and told the Detroit Free Press that some deliveries could be delayed by up to eight weeks.

The Porsche Taycan lineup is about to expand as the company has released a teaser image which hints at a “new addition to the family.”

While the teaser isn’t very revealing, it shows the mystery model alongside the Taycan 4S, Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S. It also notes the car is coming soon, so stay tuned.

Porsche is staying tight-lipped, but this obviously isn’t the Taycan Cross Turismo. Instead, it’s another derivative of the sedan.

We’re not entirely sure what Porsche has up their sleeve, but it’s possible the company will introduce the base model to a wider audience. As you may recall, they unveiled the entry-level Taycan in China last summer and it has been exclusive to that market.

If this is what Porsche is teasing, we can expect the model to have a rear-mounted electric motor that produces up to 402 hp (300 kW / 408 PS). It should be powered by a 79.2 kWh battery pack, which allows for a range of up to 257 miles (414 km) in the NEDC cycle.

If that isn’t far enough, the optional Performance Battery Plus increases the range to 303 miles (489 km). It also ups the output to 469 hp (350 kW / 476 PS) in overboost mode.

Regardless of which battery is selected, both versions of the entry-level Taycan accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 5.4 seconds before topping out at 143 mph (230 km/h).

Of course, the real advantage would be cost savings as the model slots beneath the Taycan 4S. That version starts at $103,800 – before incentives and a $1,350 delivery fee – which makes it significantly more expensive than the Tesla Model S Long Range Plus ($69,420) and Model S Performance ($91,990).
