Anyone have snow tires on their e-Up?

What sort of range decrease will it cause - I don't know of any low rolling resistance snow tires.

I read somewhere on a different EV forum they could use an extra 3-4kWh / 100 km

The range should not be decreased in case you use the same size tires, even though more aggressive protector may provide a slightly higher rolling resistance.
Technically if you were to choose tires with smaller width, the rolling resistance will be smaller, which may be reflected in a better range. Are Bigger Wheels Better Wheels?
