E-Tron Cabin Preconditioning

Can the E-Tron cabin be pre-conditioned remotely via the myAudi App or otherwise (similar to the Tesla, and as advertised by Mercedes for their upcoming EQC)? We want to be able to turn on the air conditioning or heater via a smartphone well in advance of stepping into the vehicle.

The dealers suggest it can be done, but have not been able to actually demonstrate this ability.

Many thanks!

Thanks so much, CityStig! Very helpful video. I'd still like to know whether the car can be pre-conditioned via a smartphone so that it can be done spontaneously, rather than through a pre-determined date and time.

Would be ideal to for example be able to goto an unscheduled meal on a hot summer day, and 15 minutes prior to entering the car, turn on the air conditioning in the cabin so we don't need to enter an otherwise super hot vehicle. Especially important with babies, which we have.

Tesla can do this. The upcoming Mercedes EQC may be able to do this.

Yes you can do it from myAudi, can do a "start now" which goes for 30 minutes or date time for it to start.
