I have a 2020 Mini SE EV; when I precondition, does that also warm the battery in addition to warming the interior?
What period of time prior to leaving is recommended for preconditioning?
thanks in advance for the clarification!

No, the SE will only heat/cool the cabin air. It does not precondition the battery.

If you set the departure time (either for 'comfort climate' or 'plan charging'), the SE will begin heating/cooling the cabin automatically so it will be "comfortable" in time your programmed departure time. If you activate it manually via the app, I'd say ~15 minutes will usually do the trick.
