Here in Northwest PA we have water mains that freeze occasionally, they electrify the pipe to thaw it… that would be a nice feature to blast the vault with low voltage, high current AC if it’s iced over. It’ll be interesting to see how it all performs, maybe they have preconditioning to defrost certain areas.It gets pretty cold in the mountains of California and in the winter in Texas. That’s why they sent the CyberTruck to New Zealand recently (their seasons are reverse of those in the Northern hemisphere), but you’re mostly right. They do seem to forget about us cold weather folks.
In Ohio we have blazing summer heat and frigid below zero winters. Luckily Tesla’s have excellent thermal management. They should add heat to the slats of the tonneau cover to melt ice and snow and a heated charge port door, too (maybe too complicated/costly?)
I saw the front bumper camera has what looks like a washer nozzle, that’s something I’ve been speculating about for years (especially as AI, FSD becomes more of a reality, they need a way to clean and clear the cameras)… but this would be so helpful, even now for backup cameras (can be used to blast off snow,ice,mud,etc…)
