I was backing up on my long, bush-lined driveway yesterday. It faces west and it was nearing sunset. I generally use my side mirrors to do this but it was useless due to the glare. Sadly, so we’re the backup cameras on the Model 3. I know this has nothing to do with winter climates, but does address the mirror comment. I have as much issue with my mirrors getting dirty, or wet, and becoming more or less disfunctional than I generally have with the cameras.

Again I have some concerns about eliminating handles all together in cold climates. I can tell you that our vehicles are often covered in snow and ice. I can see these electronic sensors being problematic in extreme weather. I also have concerns with the elimination of mirrors and using strictly cameras. I can tell you my back up camera is often useless with road salt, spray, dirt, snow, and ice.
