Is the Tesla Model 3 RWD any good on snow and ice?

Can you drive safely your RWD Tesla Model 3 in winter? This reviewer has an answer

Should you go for the cheaper Tesla Model 3 RWD instead of the AWD model? But what about its winter behavior? 

Tesla Model 3 comes in RWD and AWD flavors, the RWD version being the cheapest one available. At around $34,200 in the US, it's $7,000 cheaper compared with the $41,200 price tag for the Dual Motor AWD version. The latter also comes with a Long Range Battery, boosting total range from 260 miles to 310 miles (418 to 498 km), but if you don't need this range, you could ask yourself if the AWD version is worth the $7,000 difference, especially when the interior is the same.

The answer is simple: if you use the proper winter tires, you shouldn't have problems during winter, even on steep hill climbs. But some caution and common sense driving skills should be used, as shown in this video:
