Have heard most people remove air suspension systems in the far north because the valves freeze up. Similar to my F350 DEF tank that fails in the cold. Suspect Tesla Engineers have considered this. Sure don’t want my CT unable to shame my lame Ford!!!

The only thing good about -40 °C is that it's easy to convert it to the equivalent °F. It is going to be hard on your CT too. If they had to design it primarily for a - 40 °C environment you wouldn't be able to afford it. I'm sure they are well aware that some will buy it intending to use it in such an environment but they are also aware that you hardy northerners are a very small part of their market. At times they have sold their cars with a "cold weather package" but that (seat warmers, heated steering wheel, windshield wiper defrosters) now seems to be standard on the X at least. If I lived where you do I would look into this further before taking delivery.

My Citroen, using the technology of over a half-century ago, had its share of problems, but air-suspension function throughout many Canadian winters was not one of them.
