General conditions of use
Using this function while charging does not affect your vehicle’s range, yet it will be ready for use at a comfortable temperature.
When you program a pre-conditioning, the system starts between 30 and 45 minutes before target time so your vehicle reaches a comfortable temperature and remains active 10 minutes later. It is therefore the time in which you will use your vehicle that must be programmed.
Depending on your vehicle’s equipment, you can also program the charging from your connected navigation system’s touch screen, via the “Charge” page of the “ELECTRICAL” menu and program the pre-conditioning times in the ” OPTIONS” on the “AIR CONDITIONING” page.

Once programmed, the pre-conditioning is stored in the vehicle and will be launched even outside good network areas.
The doors and/or trunk must be locked. If you unlock the vehicle during pre-conditioning, it will stop after 1 minute.
Charge commands when requested during a pre-conditioning will be taken into account by the vehicle and launched when pre-conditioning stops. Be aware that an information message may be displayed on the app.
Special conditions for hybrid vehicles
Initiating the pre-conditioning of your vehicle will interrupt in-progress charge. It will be resumed at the end of temperature programming, providing that the charging station allows it.

Special conditions for electric vehicles
Fast charging mode can simultaneously operate with pre-conditioning with no condition. However, during regular charge, outside temperature is a condition:
– Between 5 and 35°, pre-conditioning and charging can work at the same time
