Default A recommended improvement

Here is a recommended improvement for the Ford Focus Electric.
Since the cold winter weather now require the use of the defrosters. When the defrosters are left on they do significantly reduce the vehicles range, and don’t need to be run continuously. It would be nice if the climate control could be switched on and off from the steering wheel. It is a bit of distraction to repeatedly reach over to the center console to turn on, and off the defroster. Only using the defrosters when needed will improve the driving range.

You can do that with voice via sync and not have to reach over to turn on/off the defrost.

Although, even on my ICE Focus, I still reach over instead of use voice--I've done it enough that I don't have to look: With my hand resting on the shifter its a simple index finger push to turn it on/off.
