Location of the charging handle's cover.
The charging cable's plug is fastened/locked in and charging starts after approx. 10 seconds.
To check the remaining charging time:
- Press the remote control key's button for Approach lighting - the combined instrument panel then shows the estimated time.
Battery charging can be interrupted for a while if the car is unlocked:
- and the door is opened - charging restarts after 2 minutes.
- without the door being opened - the car is relocked automatically, see Locking/unlocking - from the outside. Charging restarts after 1 minute.
Approach lighting must be active in order to show the remaining charging time. Its settings are managed in the menu system MY CAR.
The LED lamps show the current status while charging is in progress. The white, blue, red and yellow lamps are activated when the passenger compartment lighting is switched on - they remain switched on for a while after the passenger compartment lighting has been switched off.
Condensation from the air conditioning may drip under the car during charging. This is normal and takes place due to cooling of the hybrid battery.
