Hi all. Picking up a phew in two weeks and one thing I found out is that there is no electric heater to warm car when on electric only. Anyone try retro fitting electric heater and also will the a/c clear your windscreen when left on cold to avoid using the engine? Thanks.

Do you have seat heat? That should hold you while the engine warms the cabin (much faster than most cars). The AC works without the engine on. Retrofitting a resistance heater would be some project! It could be possible as some the Ioniq BEVs (and presumably the upcoming Niro BEVs) have a resistance heater. But the plumbing is very different in those cars, and you can upgrade the resistance heater to a heat pump.
