Using electrical sockets

12 V sockets can be used for various accessories designed for this, such as music players, cooler boxes and mobile phones.

In order for the socket to supply current, the car must be in Comfort or Drive mode.

The socket is switched off automatically when the driver leaves the car. If the car remains unlocked or is locked with reduced alarm level, the socket is active for approximately a further 10 minutes.


Accessories that are connected to the electrical sockets may be activated even when the car's electrical system is disconnected or if preconditioning is used. For this reason, unplug the plugs when they are not in use.


  • Do not use accessories with large or heavy connectors - they can damage the socket or come loose when driving.
  • Do not use accessories that can cause interference to the car's radio receiver or electrical system for example.
  • Position the accessory so that it is not at risk of injuring the driver or passengers in the event of heavy braking or collision.
  • Keep an eye on connected accessories as they can generate heat that can burn passengers or the interior.

Using 12 V sockets

Remove the blanking plug in the tunnel console in front of the socket and plug in the accessory's connector.
Unplug the accessory's connector and refit the blanking plug in the tunnel console when the socket is not in use or is left unattended.


Maximum socket output is 120 W (10 A) per socket.
