Charging port

Post by rcoundon » Fri Jan 08, 2021 1:20 pm

My i-pace arrived today!! Unfortunately, its delivery coincides with snow and ice and being the most powerful car I've driven, I'm being a bit cautious.

Anyway, a couple of things:
    • The charging port flap isn't quite flush with the body, is that normal?
    • The socket for the charging cable allows for the connection of my home charger no problem. As I understand it, for faster commercial chargers the bottom part of the charging socket is used too. This seems to have a plastic plug in it but it didn't come loose with a little tugging. Before I give it more of a yank, I just wanted to check with you guys whether this should indeed come out!

    charging flaps, seem to have a mind of their own, a small deviation seems normal to me.

    Yes the lower cover should pull off towards you, could be the cold is making it a bit tighter.

    Enjoy your car, also in the snow etc there is a low friction launch function, but I havent had any issues, the 4WD and traction are very good.

    If you press the driving modes top button twice gives you rain and snow mode. The button above that is for ASPC which is cruise control for slippy conditions/difficult terrain between 3 and 19 MPH

    My charging flap is flush
    Yes you can remove the plastic plug if your rapid charging DC mainly at service stations
    If your home charging and decide to go with a cheap tariff like Octopus Go (5p per kWh 00.30-04.30) use the referral link and get £50 credit to your 1st bill

    Surely the salesperson explained to you how to charge the car and the various options when you purchased it?

    My bonnet has never closed flush! The dealer had it in to correct it, but couldn't and now says 'body panel fitment' has only a years warrantee!
    When I said that they had it in to adjust it some months before but didn't do a particularly a good job, they basically said we can't make it fit better, but you can pay to have it sorted! It all stems from a dealer fix to the bonnet release cable!
    Money will sort it but we can't!!

    Stay safe

    It's a company lease and the delivery was done only last week and was COVID secure style so fairly perfunctory.
