Re: Considering a Highlander HY, Questions about A/C?
As long as the batteries are fully charged the ICE does not need to be on to run the AC. I sat in the car waiting for my wife for something like 30 minutes or more with the AC on full blast before the ICE finally kicked in. I clicked over to the battery monitor and it was low. BTW it did not take very much driving before they were fully charged again either (even with the AC running).
