I must say that one thing about my previous car - Ford Focus Ethanol - made me particularly happy: heated windshield.
In Sweden during 5 months of Winter half the population are standing with ice scrapers every morning, scraping and cursing away.
I just turned on the car, activated the windshield and drove away after about 1 minute. The ice melts where it had contact with the glass, and, after a very little time, could just be wiped away in big blocks. This is much more energy-conserving than putting the A/C on full blast.
The Tesla windshield with the Cold Package does heat up, but only the very bottom, where the wipers are.
What about the rest, Tesla???
