Start and switch off preconditioning

Preconditioning heats or cools the passenger compartment, if possible, prior to driving. The function is started directly from the centre display or the Volvo Cars app.

Open the climate view in the centre display by tapping on the temperature button at the bottom centre of the centre display.
Press Parking.
Tap on Start heating/cooling to start preconditioning directly.


Preconditioning is available when the high voltage battery is sufficiently charged, but performing preconditioning without the car being connected to charging affects the car's range to a great extent.


The car's doors and windows should be closed during the preconditioning of the passenger compartment.


Air purification* starts automatically when preconditioning is completed.

Windows and doors must be closed for air purification to be possible.


When the driver's seat is occupied1 preconditioning is paused, and normal climate control is started.

When the car starts to drive2, preconditioning is switched off.
