Imagine a car with a double layared glass to keep the heat/cold out.

For example, in the doors the double system can be lowered independently. the inner glass can be tinted, so in nightime you lower it and gain visibility. this can also work with the sun roof.

       So you'd have to lower the tinted glass at night, just when it's getting cold?   

       Being firmly in the 'replace driver airbags with spikes' camp, I'm averse to anything that further insulates the driver from the real world.

       Double glazing would have more use for cutting down on road noise. But they should be sealed. Operating the panes independently will create an annoying cleaning problem.

       [ ] glass is pretty heavy... maybe something to having a thin inner layer of lexar; just enough to keep air from circulating against the "main" pane.

       Bentleys have double-paned glass. It's hard to find a picture of but something I noticed while looking at a Continental GT in a showroom. I assume they did it to make the interior quieter but it would work for heat&cold too.

       what about heat leakage through rest of the car ?
