Tesla Model Y: they attempt an off-road route but are blocked by ice and snow.

Tesla Model Y: they attempt an off-road route but are blocked by ice and snow The attempt to travel the Limone-Monesi section aboard an "electric Tesla 4x4" was unsuccessful, leaving the car unavoidable.  When you think you have seen them all, there is always something that manages to surprise you. We all agree on the dubious off-road abilities of many modern SUVs, albeit with all-wheel drive. Yet there are those who, perhaps, have not yet surrendered to their innate city character despite a few extra inches of height from the ground. This is the case of two young tourists - so it seems - who have decided to undertake the difficult route from Limone Piemonte to Monesi, passing through the Via del Sale, approaching the Don Barbera refuge up to almost 2,100 meters above sea level. The outcome, however, was not the best: the car ran aground in the ice, forcing the two to abandon it in search of help.     Tesla stuck in the ice, what about the batteries? "An ending already written" by reading the comments of many web users who have openly condemned the controversial enterprise attempted by the two aboard the Tesla. Despite being equipped, on some versions, with electric all-wheel drive with two motors (one for each axle), the Model Y is certainly not designed to undertake intense off-roading, rather to ensure more grip and traction when cornering, but always on asphalt.  We have not yet traced back to the two young people who embarked on the path, perhaps frightened by the possible sanctions of the authorities. Local residents are well aware of the risks of this journey during the winter months, always covered with frozen snow and difficult to travel even with specific means. In the meantime, the photos of the car stranded on the ice are depopulating on social networks and, from there, the most frequent question: what can happen to the batteries?    Nothing on paper, if not a loss of energy due to the rigid temperatures present on the spot. Modern electric cars are built by passing intense tests at extremely low as well as high temperatures, with stress tests often at the limits of terrestrial conditions. However, an intervention by the civil protection or the fire brigade (still to be clarified, since the car is in French territory) will be required to remove the car and bring it back downstream, probably at the expense of the two adventurers. According to the experience of the locals, until March it would be impossible to hope for a thaw so rapid as to allow the car to return to low altitude on its own.  The car, stranded in that position since last November 6, would still be stuck in place, waiting to understand which state the recovery will be made from.
