Insideevs reported several "hydroplanings":

Hyundai Kona well over its EPA range and the trip includes vampire current plus multiple trips (which means additional HVAC use) : https://insideevs.com/reviews/404013...-miles-charge/
Again, you're going with anecdotal info. In the right circumstances, any tire will hydroplane and any EV can get over its rated mileage given the right circumstances. Like you, I could find anecdotal information showing just about anything I want, but that doesn't make it right or meaningful.

Tirerack's ratings show the Michelin Primacy MXM4 as roughly in the middle of the Grand Touring All-Season category with its wet performance somewhat above the middle of the range. At least this is an average of a whole bunch of anecdotal opinions.
