I had my longtime window tinting installer do my Model S today and he mentioned that the front windshield of the S has a film built into it for heat rejection. Some high end cars such as the BMW 5 series, Mercedes S, Maybach, etc. also have this. Nice to know the Model S has it too.
BTW if you haven't had your rear and side windows tinted, I highly recommend it. It really cuts down on the heat in the summer (and no doubt helping range since the AC doesn't have to work as hard), and gives some more privacy to the folks in the back seat.
And if you need a recommendation for an installer who will come to your house or business to do the install in the San Diego or probably Orange County area, let me know. He's done five of my cars going back over ten years and they all turned out perfect.
