Get into a comfortably cool car in summer and a warm car with clear windows in winter, remote air conditioning and auxiliary heating in the BMW X5 iPerformance model makes that possible. Thanks to an electrical refrigerant compressor and a tankless electrical heater, the automatic air conditioning functions almost silently, even when the engine is off. Two different departure times can be scheduled in advance.
Half an hour before the planned departure, heating, cooling and ventilation to the selected temperature is implemented by an intelligent control system. The system is operated by the iDrive Controller inside the car, or conveniently with a smartphone using the BMW Remote Services app.
Provided that the battery has a sufficient charge, the stationary heating and cooling operates regardless of whether the vehicle is being externally charged or not.
