    They have that cabin preconditioning thing right? Through an app? That sounds excellent.

    You mean heat? My GMC has cabin preconditioning too then.

    The cars work fine. I don't have a heated garage at the moment, so my consumption is up quite a bit. I never have fear that my battery doesn't have enough CCA to turnover a cold block.

    I've increase my charge limit to 70% to give me more headroom for the heater working overtime.

    This was my usage before the cold snap. I'll take another set once it gets warmer.

    Yes heat. Several vehicles have it. It's a good feature.

    Range has taken a pretty serious hit, but sill easily enough to commute with room for extra emergencies. Mine is one with a heat pump and it's not the warmest system in the world. It's also pretty loud when it's working, which surprised me. In these super cold temps the cabin seems to lose a lot of heat out of the glass roof. The rear tires are sliding lots with the slippery roads even with studded winters. It's very easy to lean on the traction control from almost every stop, but mine is the RWD version.

    The heat pump is only good to -10 or something. It uses the resistive backup heater when it is colder.

    Range & efficiency has suffered, maybe 30%? But I'm never cold soaked.
    Cabin heater can't push out the 27C I'm asking for, heater can't keep up against the outside air.

    I drive with chill mode + slip start these days, gets traction a lot better than standard acceleration.

    Overall still great car, but annoyed I can't safely use AP anywhere.

    That's only on Model S and Model X. I think the China Model Y gets it, but Model 3 does not world wide.

    Pilot Sport EV announced. Harder compound in the center to even out tire wear from high pressure and torque.
