What I'd really like is someone with real life experience with a Model S in serious winter and by serious winter I mean loads of snow and temperatures in the -10..-30C range. I'm seriously contemplating placing an order on the 85kWh model these days, but the winter in Estonia is from ~December-March with average temp around -10 with weeks of -30 not impossible. The Model S would be my ONLY car.
I don't need range beyond ca 200km in winter, I can recharge at my destination for sure and if not I can take a break at a charging station easily enough (we've got chargers over the whole country, every 40-60km or so, the first fully electrified country in the world). But I seriously need to know the Model S will in fact work just fine in -30C.
