Some random points: If your commute is primarily at freeway speeds or involves very steep grades you may find your EV range reduced into the 30+ mile range or you may find your ICE engaging to provide additional "oomph". Cabin preconditioning (heating or cooling) will run for 30 minutes, whether or not it has reached the desired temperature. If your Clarity is unplugged it will draw power from the traction battery pack to precondition the cabin - but if it's plugged into a 240V source, it will draw the power it needs from the grid. You don't get to set a target temperature and, as best I can tell, Honda has not published the preconditioning temperatures. I can tell you from personal experience that, in cold weather, preconditioning does not make the interior "toasty warm" - just less cold - and in hot weather not "chilly" - just less hot.47 miles on battery is perfect for my daily commute of 30 miles.
2. For the remote climate conditioning, how long will it take to bring my car from max heat (Calabasas, 110F outside temp in summer) down to 70F? Will that much of a temperature differential "time out"?
