Not. I would like to see even one windshield washer fluid that goes down to -50F.

I mentioned the extreme case. Most are only good to about -20F like this Prestone brand:

But there are stronger mixes available:

Likely only in northern Canada or Alaska - but they can still freeze up:

-50F or -20F, make up your mind.

I'm still waiting for a link to even one commercial product that goes down to -50F.

Lots of washer fluids go below -45C in Canada. Not a problem.
