Cabin, coolant, engine oil, transmission oil and fuel temperatures are eletronically managed and include back up heaters to bring them to ( and keep at) operating or set up temps.
I will agree that they are designed for the temperature, but I can tell you just driving around town in both vehicles that the gas one is doing much better in the heating of the cabin department.

On the highway I would probably not think of adding a cover, but my driving is essentially city traffic and shorter distances and -40 is as nasty as the number implies.
