Being that a Tesla "store" rep introduced me that the Model S uses inverter coolant (brilliant!) as the heat source for the vehicle instead of electric heat, is there any experience with the heating system in the Model S? I live in a cold climate and there will be plenty of times where the car will cold soak outside un-plugged. How long does it take to feel the heating system to heat up the cabin? Does it ever really reach desired temperatures (unlike the Volt)? And does this car have a feature where if plugged in it will use outside power to get the cabin to desired temperature?
Two, I wish this forum had a search functionality so I can see if my questions have been previously answered.
Now I would like to introduce myself as new and possible prospect buyer to the Tesla brand. Live in NY and frequently travel to VT during the winter. I love everything Tesla stands for and really really hope the company succeeds.
