Preconditioning is a climate function which, if possible, attempts to reach comfort temperature in the passenger compartment before departure.

Preconditioning can be started directly or set via timer, from the centre display or using a mobile phone.

The function utilises several systems in different cases:
  • In a cold climate, the electric heating system warms up the passenger compartment to a comfortable temperature.
  • The air conditioning, in a hot climate, cools the passenger compartment to the comfort temperature.
  • Heated seats* for driver and passengers are activated automatically at an ambient temperature of 10°C(50°F) or lower. The seat heater is activated at level 1, regardless of the previous setting.
  • Heated 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.

Heating the battery

Battery heating is activated automatically if the timer for preconditioning is activated and the charging cable is connected.

Heating the battery takes place if the internal temperature in the battery is low. If the car is used on a regular basis, battery heating may not be necessary, despite the ambient temperature being low.


Preconditioning is available when the high voltage battery is sufficiently charged, but running preconditioning without the car connected to an electrical socket affects the car's range.


During preconditioning of the passenger compartment, the car works to reach comfort temperature and not the temperature set in the climate control system.
