Has the Model S (which I am very interested in) been tested in colder northern climates? What is the effect on battery life/endurance in sub zero temperatures? Winnipeg has a temperature range from the high 30's (Celsius) in the summer to -40's in the winter. I noticed some posts regarding -20, but it did not say celsius or fahrenheit. In addition, in colder climates, would the battery pack require a "battery blanket"? Lastly, I am wondering that if I was to purchase this car, would I be able to drive it all year or have to park it in a heated garage for 3-4 months? I thank you for your time and await your response.
