frunk cargo net is standard for sigs, optional for GP's.
Where do you order one?
Ugh. Season 1. Oh, the pain! Make it stop!
Back on topic, in order from most fogging to least fogging:
1. Recirculate with A/C compressor off.
2. Outside air with A/C compressor off.
3. Recirculate with A/C compressor on.
4. Outside air with A/C compressor on.
If your windows are fogging up, check that A/C is on, even if you're heating. If that still doesn't work, make sure recirculate isn't on.
The headlights are just fubared. They should never fog.
R77 got it without asking.

Finally did a testdrive here in Oslo today. Temp was -7C and i noticed halfway that the rear window fogged up completely and then followed by the front window. It went away within seconds by using the defroster, but I have to admit i find it strange that it happened at all. Did not notice if the AC was on since I was so focused on enjoying the way to short ride..
As a comparison I drove to the tesla store and back in my 2012 VW Tiguan and had no fogging whatsoever in the exact same conditions.
1 and 2
3 and 4
could be swapped if it is raining, or otherwise very humid outside. My GTI seems to suck in water/humidity when it is raining.
Really? I've seen no listing for that as an option or its price.
The last car I bought (a hatchback) showed a cargo area carpeted mat as "standard equipment" in the brochure, but my car was delivered without one. I argued with the dealer for quite a bit and was told that the brochure was "out of date" and that the mat was now an extra-cost option. Never did get the mat. I guess changes like this are kind of "the norm".
Woo hoo! Freebie for me !!!!
As for the fogging, left front window does quite often. None now that the temp has dropped, but I expect it to return.
That's what our DS Ian told us when I asked about it at factory delivery last Sunday (12/9). He said that we'd be able to buy it on the website or at a store "soon".
Guess they were still in "Sig mode" for the early folks like Evan and they included it.
My Volt seems to fog up easier than other cars as well. The defroster works well, but uses a lot of energy.
Cracking the windows 1/2" helps.
When not running the defrost or A/C, directing air flow to your feet, instead of the windshield, when turning the car on will keep humid air from the ducts from hitting the cold windshield.
Ditto my Leaf! Wonder why EV's fog up more than ICE's?
I have a net too, It keeps beer/ cider in it's place ;>
This was my headlight last night...
I have a trick to deal with fogging: I put a couple of 500 g bags of silica gel desiccant in both my cars. It doesn't completely remove fogging, but it helps prevent ice on the inside of the windows, and it also absorbs some of the moisture from the floor etc. They absorb a couple of hundred grams of water each before they have to be regenerated.
The downside is that I have to remember to bake the bags in a microwave oven every week or so. I still find that to be less of a hassle than wiping moisture off the windows or scraping away the ice. Might be worth a try.
Cargo net is in the TeslaShop today, $49. No idea why we are discussing it in the Fogging thread!
Model S - Functional Tesla Motors
I use the well in the rear for that. Closing the frunk is a pain
The OP asked 2 questions in his first post
It's still very beneficial to wipe off the layer of "gunk" that accumulates on the inside surface of the windows as all the new materials in the car give off their manufacturing gases. You'll find it fogs up far less often when you do this.
Especially with a beer in your hand
I put my cover in the rear well in a 'large' fashion last week and haven't dealt with it yet. Maybe I'll wash my car and put it on it again.
Fogging - my headlamps had a tiny fog in them after they had been on for a while then parked for a while
interior windows are difficult. I put rain-x anti fog on the inside and I can see where I missed it. Seems to work ok. At least it is a little better
Wait, there's no cargo net standard?
[sigh] my bank account hates me ( or will in a couple days time )
My brown non-Sig Model S comes with a frunk cargo net.
