For example, if it is set to 8 a.m., it will start air conditioning the interior at 7:50 a.m. and continue to do so until 8:05 a.m. It automatically detects whether heating or cooling is required. You can also use the app to “immediately air condition”, then it will air condition for 5 minutes.
Without having the vehicle plugged in, a “boost” can only be activated via the app. To do this, it must have at least 45% battery power. Here the vehicle immediately starts the air conditioning and lets it run for 10 minutes.
In the summer it cools down to approx. 21°C with the standard air conditioning system and in winter it heats up the interior to approx. 21°C. When the pre heating is active, it's also heating up the battery. The heater is a 4kW PTC heater which, like the air conditioner, is directly connected to the HV battery via the HV mains.
