Yup. The LEAF I got was a cheapo trim, so it did not have that functionality. The Bolt could do it, but I have an attached and warm garage, so I never did that either. And the bigger issue is just cold weather road trips, not commutes or short errands. Preheating doesn't avert the issue there. RE roadtrips, IMO, the fast charging network (at least along my I-95 route) was getting really good. I did several roadtrips in my Bolt that were 500-1000 miles round-trip, in all kinds of weather, and I never white-knuckled it. And the stops to charge were never a hassle, like a few 20-30 min stops after driving 90 minutes to 150 minutes. Wouldn't want to drive cross-country in a 2017 Bolt, but for visiting family 250 to 400 miles away, aok. OT, I replaced the incandescent headlights in my Volt with nicer LED ones, that use 55W less power. I figured that adds >1000' onto my ~30 mile electric range, at least at night or in the rain.
