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.
