Preconditioning can use direct start or be set via the timer.
- In a cold climate, the parking heater warms up the passenger compartment to a comfortable temperature.
- The air conditioning, in a hot climate, cools the passenger compartment to the comfort temperature.
- Activation of heated steering wheel* and heated seats* for driver and passenger can be selected.
- Heated windscreen, rear window and door mirrors are automatically activated as required.
During preconditioning in a hot climate, condensation from the air conditioning may drip under the car. This is normal.
Preconditioning is available only when the car is connected to an electrical socket1. A charging station which is not always active, e.g. on account of a timer, may cause preconditioning to malfunction.
If the car is not connected to an electrical socket, it is still possible to cool the passenger compartment briefly in a warm climate by starting preconditioning directly.
