I was thinking more about the unlisted features of the i-MiEV when replying to a thread at TMC about the Model 3's door handles and ice concerns when that word crossed my mind. I have yet to have the doors on either i-MiEV freeze shut. The design of the door seal works great to flex formed ice and break it free. This has been a huge hassle saver, especially considering the Cavalier I had before would freeze shut with even a simple frost. One day, it took me over an hour to get the door thawed enough to get it open, but that was because of a random ice storm with 1/4" of ice encasing the car. I even had a piece of ice with a perfect impression of the tire sidewall
When it comes to ice problems with the i-MiEV, the cabin doors and handles aren't among them. Now, the inner charge port door, the wipers, and the windows are a different story, but not any worse than any other car.

Ed, I like that name, Pinball. Reminds me of The Who song.
