Kona - both Prem & Prem SE =
Door Mirrors - Electric Adjustment and Heated with Power Folding Function

Be aware on some cars, the pre heat timer or App On Demand functions do not trigger the heated door mirrors.
(eg the VW app / in car timer does not do this )
So in a heavy frost you can come out to a car with clear windows but faff with a credit card / spray can to sort the blooming' mirrors out before you can drive off safely. #SlightyNarked #FirstWorldProblems

Interesting to note that heated mirrors are high up on the “Wanted” list.
It’s usually other common requested things like “How far will it go on a charge” etc etc !.
Different from the list of other requests on a EV !.

So I am talking about door mirrors. So far we have Zoes, higher spec Leaf and Kona premium Tesla S and Soul.

My 2016 Nissan Leaf Tekna had heated mirrors, and so does my 2020 MG ZS EV. Both models used the heated rear window switch.

As has been said the MG ZS (Exclusive trim) and also the MG5 (again Exclusive trim) have heated door mirrors.

My question would be are they really worth it, I've got them on my Skoda and I cant say I've ever used them or even noticed they work for that matter!

If they work then and they are included in the model spec you want then they are useful when your mirrors are frosted up.

eNV200 Evalia has them, but the lower spec doesn't.

Heated mirrors are definitely a very useful thing to have.

Have them on the eGolf.

Use them regularly in winter, but unfortunately they don't switch on from the app so I can come out to a warm car with all windows clear but still have frosty mirrors. But that is pretty much the definition of a first world problem.

Ioniq has them. And I pace and e tron.

I think It might be better to start a thread titled 'which ev doesnt have heated mirrors?’
