I think this feature should be advertised more. Most guys like the 0-60 in blah-blah and million lb-ft of torque, but tell their wife that they can go out to a toasty car in the winter and cool car in the summer without using any gas, and that car will be sitting in their driveway. I remind my wife of preconditioning every time she complains about it being too hot/cold when we first get in the car, it's my only hope of getting an EV in the near future. :P
