She maintains a comfortable level of temperature in a closed car for hours, even when it doesn’t work. Then the company noted that this feature is available only on the Tesla that are equipped with large batteries.
New mode Dog Mode is actually an enhanced version of the function Overheat Protection Cabin. To activate a parked car you need to choose on the touch screen to Keep Climate On and select a DOG and then set the desired temperature range.
This not only will be maintained at a comfortable temperature in the cabin, but concerned passers-by will be notified that the air conditioner is running and the dog inside is a comfortable environment, so there is no need to try to rescue her.
Such a regime can be maintained long enough. If the battery level of the electric vehicle drops below 20%, the user of the smartphone a notification will be sent.
