    With the new HVAC system, we can both direct air at a particular point or diffuse it in multiple ways. Love that.
    But the disadvantage is the controls are nested one level within the menu system. So changing it is not instant.

    I'm still dubious about the ability to keep the windshield clear of frost at -35 degrees.

    The HVAC system is cool and all as a show off thing, but in reality, I can't see myself adjusting it that often. When someone new enters the car, yea, they'll say wowww awesomeee.

    Is there an Eco setting so that that HVAC doesn't use as much electricity to warm the cabin during the winter? Our RAV4 Hybrid has the eco mode and the HVAC is electrical.

    It was there in the Model S, called the range mode. So it should be there in Model 3 too.
