jmueller065 I guess that makes sense. I was thinking it was more for user comfort. Using the logic that if you're at a quick charger you intend to continue your journey shorty and who wants to get into a hot car when you've stopped for a quick charge? Use grid power to precondition the car instead of using the battery to cool a hot car when you get under way again. Who knows maybe it's for both of these reasons?

Well that kind of is the same thing: Perhaps the fast charger does heat the car up.

Makes me wonder: Does it do that when its -10F out?

I was thinking a hot car from sitting in the summer sun not from the battery. I'm guessing it's probably like the remote start function where it turns on the AC if it's hot and the heat if it's -10F out.
