Great 1.5 hour drive to work today with my #jaguar #ipace completely fogged up. Despite being preconditioned and A/C on max the whole way it never cleared.
A/C on max will typically make steaming worse

When you put on max heat or cooling most cars will switch to fully recycling air and not let in new fresh air just blow about the old cabin air. Thus gets increasingly moist due to occupants breathing.

There is typically only 2 reasons for excessive steaming like this a cabin filter needing replacement or excessive recycle of cabin air. The latter is user controlled.

Unless mine is going auto onto recirc it's not that I've never pressed recirc in any car I've owned. I think it had a new filter at service in July. Did it again last night after 30 minutes perfect driving. Stoped at home, put work stuff away, 5 mins later got in it to go to shop, instant steam up. Put in garage and used a different car to go to shop! Was fine again today... It somehow decides to blow wet air around at random times. It looks just like the piccies above when it does it.
