The wipers don't automatically move with pre-heat. What I was saying was that if your HVAC was set to blow air on the windshield but failed to defrost the wipers, that you could manually move the wipers up so that they were on a heated part of the windshield. I don't know how effective the defroster is yet at thawing the windshield wipers as we haven't had real snow or freezing rain yet (had some flurries, but it was dry snow). I don't foresee any issues as the i-MiEV does a good job at thawing the blades.
Sorry for the confusing ramble.
