According to surveys, motorists spend three hours a year defrosting their cars

When thawing, time flies by. New research has found that removing frost or snow from your car takes an average of more than three hours a year.

Winter work takes 35 percent of drivers between five and seven minutes, as Skoda research has found.

It was also found that 13 percent spend eight to 10 minutes defrosting, while 25 percent do it quickly, taking between two and four minutes to clear the screens.

The most popular method of defrosting is the car’s heating system (63 parts). Ice scrapers, de-icers, windscreen wipers (27 pieces) and boiled water (15 pieces) followed. Curiously, 13pc admitted to using their bank card or plastic card.

More than three quarters (76 pieces) keep the engine running during defrost to speed up the process.

Most (74 percent) were unaware that electric vehicles (EVs) can be “preconditioned” to defrost the car before boarding.

Apps can also heat the interior and prime the battery when it’s cold, so it’s ready to drive for a scheduled time.
