Refreshed Model X - how does it do in the winter?

Given that the refreshed Model X is supposed to be using a heat pump, I'm looking to see if anyone who has received their X are noticing any issues with heat in cold climates? I'm asking after the issues with the Model Y/3 over heat pump failures and seeming lack of heat in the cabin. I'm finding that my wife's Model Y can warm up fine, but that once under way, the warmth in the cabin drops noticably - much more so than my Model S. I'm also wondering if the system in the X is as loud as the Y's.

I'm a little confused because it doesn't seem that Toronto (your profile setting) gets that cold. -- that I thought is heat pump issues were at much colder areas.

It has been affecting vehicles in areas that are certainly colder than Toronto, but I've noticed that my wife's Model Y heating is nowhere nearly as effective as my Model S. It wasn't noticeable last year, but this year it feels different, especially when the mercury dips below -15C. While I've not received the error message that failing vehicles have been going through, there have been failures in temperatures that are warmed than -30C - there seems to be a bit of randomness in it all.

I'm simply asking if anyone who does have a refreshed X whether they've experienced it.

Recent heat pump failures - software issue?
