I'm surprised that the fan inside the battery pack doesn't have a lower turn-on threshold as mine seems to never turn on except for the first half of a DC charge.
Yes, I also say that temp, but there were still many km to do so I wondered how hot did it get without the AC trick. But since he had to make some charging up to 90%, I suspect that cooled down the battery a bit. When charging above 80% in a QC, the lower charing speed and the continuous AC into the pack (at least in some cars like mine) results in a decrease in temperature. And since he had to drive slower in the last steps that must have helped, too.
Sucessive quick charging to 80% and then 100km/h cruising are what really work up a sweat in the pack
