A silicone water bowl shaped like an ice scraper. In the evening pour in some fresh water for stray animals. In the morning take the ice out of the bowl and use it as an ice scraper for your car's frozen windshield.
Wild and semi-domesticated animals need water during freezing winters. Make it a habit to provide fresh water for them. At the same time put the frozen leftover ice to good use.
Snow might be piled on top of your car and fall on your seat as you open the door. With this solution, there is no need to open the door and retrieve the scraper. Due to freezing temperatures, a fresh one is ready for you outside, every morning.

A silicone bowl for drinking water. The inside of the bowl is made in the shape of several robust ice scrapers. If one of them breaks during scraping, you have multiple spares.

It could even be the size of a small shovel, fitting a few liters of water.
