Will it be that cold in Nov/ Dec ?

The heater you refer to will need to plugged into a street bollard to power it I assume they are main AC voltage

There are other AC heaters that are plumbed into the radiator hoses

For a portable solution consider a Webasto or Eberspacher diesel heater that is plumbed into the engine coolant circuit and runs on diesel ( Petrol versions also available ) from the fuel tank but these are more use to warm an engine prior to starting ( maybe limited to 60 mins runtime ) than to keep it warm all night

Have you also considered the need for winter tyres and snow chains ?

Just put “engine heater Finland “ or “Finland engine heater” into a google search

Some interesting results


A general rule of thumb is to plug in your engine block heater when the weather reaches -15° C or lower, just to be safe. If you drive a diesel vehicle, you may need to plug in the engine block heater before temperatures drop that low
