    I live in SoCal where it's still summer, and since 8.0 when I get into my car that has been left in the sun, it is no longer so hot inside it's hard to breathe the air!! (I've seen 135!)
    I realize I could activate the a/c with the app, and I often do, but I my schedule isn't fixed, and at times I fail to turn it on in time.
    Moral here: Other than helping save lives the new temp threshold feature is awesome!

    I generally turn the climate on when I get up from my desk on hot (or cold?) days, but I was thinking that the passive cooling should reduce the wear and tear on the interior and electronics, too.

    Have you seen your range drop? If so by how much ?

    The range hit should be negligible. I'm looking forward to this feature too!

    The car was sitting in direct sunlight for 5 hours today. Parked the car at 69%, it was still 69% when I got it.
    I have all kinds of logging on the car, but unfortunately none of the logs track interior temp except when the car is on, so I cannot say how long the HVAC was active for.
    Elon suggested in a tweet that it could maintain that temp for a yr.

    It's great! If I forget to turn on the AC beforehand, I don't have to return to a 139 degree car. But a lot of people have been telling me that I left my car running.

    I'm really curious to see what the actual impact on range is.

    Read muzzman above. There is no noticeable impact on range.

    If it is less than 105 outside all it has to do is run the fan, which takes a negligable amount of energy.

    I had mine come on Wednesday and impact seemed around 7% loss of battery (this is with a 85 battery)with car parked for a typical work day. This included any vampire loss. Not terrible.

    So 7% per day on a 85kWh is 6 kWh per day.

    But Elon says this will last a year.

    Conclusion: Tesla is about to ship a 2190 kWh battery.

    COOOL!!!

    I think the pack has to be bigger than that - Elon also said it shuts off when the battery reaches 20%...

    From above: This included any vampire loss. --- so it is not actually 7%. You would need to know what their typical day is.
