I have seen many people discussing about the falcon doors with snow on the roof possible issues, but getting snow on the roof also means driving in cold to very cold temperatures...
I personally leave in Montreal and while I am happy to see a SUV-like electric car, I can't help but wonder how bad/well the car would perform in extreme weather conditions (-10 to -30 celsius) we all know temperature drop influences batteries autonomy (like your cellphone dying when skiing) I guess the car would face similar issues.
I have seen a few Tesla S model around here but mostly in summer, so is there any real life tests being performed out there to see if it is actually imaginable to drive a Model S / X during a cold winter or if you would spend your time charging the car (without any "supercharger" in the region) and / or worse at the garage, fixing the car after a full failure ?
Anyway Tesla is definitly a great push toward great Electric cars, maybe it is just to early for cold weather regions ?
