I drove a Nissan Leaf this week. Not a Tesla for sure, but a solid entry into electric vehicles. While I was inspecting what's under the hood, a couple of questions arose: where is the wiper fluid to squirt the windshield in the Model S (or is there any)? Can we buy stock replacement wiper blades at the local auto store? Is there a rear wiper? (These are important questions here in Seattle--we use the wiper blades a LOT). Rear/front window defrost? What about accessory power jacks to power a video game system, air pump, etc? Rear climate controls? Do we change the battery coolant or does Tesla do this? Why isn't there a remote unlock--seems like Tesla should be able to do this (and it would be a great iphone app feature)?
I'm sure you gurus out there have answers to these questions, and thanks in advance!
