I get that all the time. That's northwest Arkansas, and you'd be surprised. A couple years ago, we got -20.
I do know such a conversion would be difficult. But I'm ambitious. I'm keeping this car for the long haul and planning a move to a much colder climate.
I do have the cold weather package. I wish the steering wheel stayed on rather than modulating. It usually turns off about half way to work then on again right as I get there.
I'm interested in efficiency. I saved 600 gallons of propane a year in my home by switching to a heat pump (among other things). Had I known heat pumps would be available, I would have waited for 2013, saying nothing of the price drop. It's that big of a deal for me. It's not like a regular car. Every bit of power you use away from home is more or less the power you use in your home. This is Arkansas. There are no usable public charging stations here. Heat costs whether it is warm whether I get in or not.
