If completely frozen can’t you just heat it up remotely? Sure it’ll eat some battery but you’ll be able to drive, no?

Yes that helps, but at the time the feature was not enabled on the firmware and the battery was low-ish.
I hear the newer firmware tries to keep the battery abot freezing, but will see.

I would think only by so much but that also hurts when somebody has a low charge in the car so the balance of keeping it warm and still being able to drive to work comes into play.

yeah not having a chargin point at home makes the battery empty with just heating, preheating the car uses like 1-5% on itself :p

The solution is simple : get a home charger so you can heat it on ac power instead of battery power. Also makes sure your car is never super low on battery.

Also, my egolf has had this feature since I got it 3 years ago. How can they not enable this by default on a brand new car?

Because the software is still not finished I guess... it’s a bit of a bummer.

also yes, just go with the 50m schuko extension out your bedroom window :hammer:

Do you find certain screens sluggish, or would that likely be an ID4 feature?

which screeens? and since the software/hw is the same so it might be sluggish but i haven't noticed it yet.

ID3 seemed okay compared to Demuro's review - my educated guess would be software issues.

Arent the ID3 and ID4 identical, interior wise? So any bugs/delays are carried over?
I drove an ID3 a while back and while not Tesla quick (response wise) the interface was fine IMHO.

My eGolf is slow in comparison, but then again my car started life in 2016, which in these terms is 200 years ago

But id4 started with newer firmware, which i am supposed to get soon TM.

So you'll get the laggy-to-the-point-of-being-unusable touchscreen update soon? :D

Hopefully they'll skip the version that's terrible in the id4.

Yeah watched the video and was confised how the infotainmet was so slow, mine isn't that slow at all.

We shall see with the 2.1 update, which i am currently waiting.

ah yeah,s aw the video later than our question.


If my memory is correct, none of the european reviews (which i have seen) didn't mention the laggy screen :unsure:
