BMW told Autocar that it will no longer charge for functions such as heated seats.
BMW was asking $18 a month ($178) per year in the UK to activate the heated seats function. It charged similar amounts in other countries, but not in the US, where people are more prone to expect those features.
BMW told Autocar that it will not charge for such functions in the future, but will continue to require subscriptions for more advanced features such as parking assistance and driving assistance.
