Incredible auto feature has changed winter driving for the better — but there’s a catch
WINTER is upon us and we all know that means standing out in the cold every morning and scraping the ice off our windshields.
Well, it used to be like that; An incredible new auto feature means freezing hands could be a thing of the past.
Gasoline and diesel cars need to be turned on and allowed to warm up before everything starts to thaw.
But there is another way – the catch is that you need an electric car and a place to charge it.

Most electric cars can be preheated so they are warm and ready to drive as soon as you get in.
That means no more waiting in the cold for the damn thing to warm up and no more scraping stubborn ice off your windshield.
Even better, most electric vehicles come with an app for your phone, so you don’t even have to go outside.
As long as the car is plugged in, you can sit in your warm house and choose when you want the heating to start and stop.
This way you can plan it right before your commute.
On some cars, you can even pre-program exactly how warm you want your heated seats to be.
Preheating also warms up the car battery, making it more efficient and giving you better range than waiting for the battery to warm up while driving.
Worlds away from the old days with coats, scarves and a frozen old engine that refuses to play along on a dark Monday morning.
