When temperatures outside are low, the driver can still begin his or her drive in a comfortably preheated vehicle, because the temperature of the interior can be adjusted regardless of engine function via the Auxiliary heating, including the convenient timer function.
It also keeps the windowpanes free of fog and frost. The auxiliary heating is activated and operated via a separate remote control, the My BMW Remote App or the iDrive Controller.
A water heating device acts as the heating source. It is supplied with energy by the fuel system. The cold engine is also pre-heated by the device. This further reduces fuel consumption during the warm-up phase. The Auxiliary heating can be activated automatically at a pre-selected time when there is an outside temperature of below 15°C or manually turned on at any temperature.
