    Hello!

    My S 85D is currently in service and I was very lucky to have a Tesla loaner car ( 2014 P85). Since it's very cold around here (-20°C / -4F) during the night, I would like to pre-heat the car before leaving to work tomorrow morning.

    Is there any way to do that? Maybe Tesla could link the loaner car to my usual account?

    Thanks!
    Christian

    I don't believe they do this so they can keep tabs on their cars

    Have to do it in the car when it comes to a loaner.

    If it's in a safe place you can leave the key on the dash, turn on the climate control and go finish getting ready while it warms up.

    Not as good, for sure.
