Control the climate systems remotely

Remotely controlling car temperature from an iPhone using the CARWINGS app for Nissan LEAF

Here’s the scenario: it’s a sweltering August day and you know you’ll be getting in the car in 15 minutes. Use your smartphone or computer to remotely turn on the air conditioning and voila, you’ll be entering a nice cool car. The system also works to remotely turn on the heater.

A second benefit of this feature is that it saves valuable battery power. By remotely starting the climate systems, you can cool or heat your Nissan LEAF® while it is still plugged in, meaning you don’t need to use the extra battery power when travelling.
