Oymyakon, Russia is one of the coldest inhabited places e.g. current temperature is –44oF.

If Tesla cars can perform well in such harsh weather, they can easily handle any other cold weather.

At the least, Oymyakon tests should give Tesla good feedback on how to improve its batteries and car performance for cold weather.

After Tesla’s cold weather controversy and the subsequent drama, Tesla needs something extreme like this. Although this location may not be practical for Tesla or any other car.
