First of all, you would need a MASSIVE power inverter to run a heater and air compressor, second, it would destroy/drain the car's electrical system and battery in a few minutes. These cars have small alternators and generate a measly amount of power at idle, and a rather small amount even rev'd up (65A or less, you'd probably need about 250+) Thus, probably a bad idea.

Use the outlet on the wall, thats what its for.
