Only the rear/ backlite glass has a heated wiper park on the Focus hatch in the U.S. the quick clear however would clear the entire glass much quicker than just heating the wiper park location alone on the front.
Of course its more expensive, as it is more complicated to make and the volumes are much lower, but with mass production down comes the price. The higher the unit volume of something the less it generally costs to produce.
