I know heat is the killer of Li-Po batteries, but does it harm them to be left in the car in freezing weather?

No. Just remember that you have reduced flight times and there isn't as much "punch" from a cold lipo.

Lipo
Some people carry a small refrigerator for their lipos And in the winter, some people keep them wrapped in blankets or heating pads..

briefly:

cold preserves lipos just fine. some people store them in the fridge when not in use.

but, immediately prior to flight they need to be warmed up to ~60°F (15°C) at least (in my experience). I find my packs fly best in ~80°F (26°C) weather...so, the warmer the better up to ~80°F (26°C)

if it ain't broke, break it.

Literally, yes... If Lipos "freeze" in your car it will harm them. If it's 40 degrees outside you'll be fine.

I would NOT leave them in the car if the temp was expected to be less than 32 degrees.
