Cold Weather Climate Testing the Model S

This winter Model S took a trip to Baudette, Minnesota, one of the coldest places in the continental United States. Tesla engineers worked for days in sub-zero weather in order to put Model S through a rigorous set of demanding winter driving tests.

The Automotive Enviro Testing facility offered us 820 acres of snow and ice and 19 different courses of varied winter terrain. This allowed us to fully evaluate Model S vehicle dynamics, durability, range and performance under the most extreme conditions. After days of rigorous testing, we left more confident than ever that Model S will set the standard for premium performance – no matter what's in the forecast.

How about designing a timer into the car that would allow you to set the ideal temperature and the time you want to leave in the morning. That way the car can warm up (or cool down in the summer) while still plugged in, leaving you with a comfortable ride and a full battery.
