Charging does not stop at 100%

Updated 9/27/2022

The following article only applies to hybrid vehicles from the model year 2022 Late.

The vehicle's traction battery has a cooling system to cool the battery. To cool the battery during charging, the cooling system requires energy to prevent the battery from overheating.

In warmer climates, or with a lower capacity charger, the vehicle will continue to charge (flashing green light) even when the charging level has reached 100%. This is because the cooling system is consuming energy.

Please note, that this will not affect the life expectancy of the battery and it is in accordance with normal vehicle behaviour.
