For those of you who aren't aware, some other EVs have what's called "scheduled preconditioning". I know for sure the BMW i3 and the Nissan Leaf have had it for years now. I had an i3 for 2 years and it was one of my favorite features of the car. Here's how it works: You set the schedule in the car or using the mobile app ONE TIME. For example, I set mine to precondition "weekdays at 6:30 am and 3:30 pm". I never needed to manually "remote start" my car ever again except on weekends and for unscheduled trips. It was AMAZING. I would get in my car in the summer after work to find it already cooled down to 70 degrees and in the mornings in winter it would be warmed up to 70 degrees. And here's the key point: It's true it doesn't take much time to open the app and manually start the car, but I never had to remember to do this. The closest comparison I can thing of is an automated thermostat in your home vs a manual. Sure it takes seconds each day to manually set it, but after having an auto-thermostat would you really want to go back to manual? From what I've read, Teslas do not have this and I find it somewhat perplexing given how amazing it is and because it's a feature that's simply not possible to do safely on a gas car as it could be in the garage when it starts automatically. Is this the California effect where needs of those living in a location that has real seasons are not considered?
