Re: How cold weather affects EV batteries

I missed this, but would be interested to hear if there were any juicy tidbits? Would be interesting to compare to my own experiences and maybe pick up a tip or two. I live in Sweden, park my ID3 outside and I have still managed to get very good range with mine. Last week has ranged from -3 to -16, ...

Re: cold air while heating

Been using my car in -15c here in Sweden and I park it outside, have had no such issues. In other words, that does not sound anything like my experience and does not sound normal which makes me wonder if you may have an actual issue with the AC rather than just the way you have set it up.

Re: Load length

I've just discovered, to my surprise, that I can load an 8ft fence post into my ID.3 with room to spare. That's through the ski hatch in the rear seat back, at a slight diagonal all the way forwards into the front passenger footwell. Previously I had a Passat Estate and I think the ID.3 can take lo...

Hi Heidi
My life model has the USB-c in both locations. But good to know the rear ones are for power only, hadn't realised this.
Thanks
Indeed, mine is also a Life trim model and I have all 4.

Re: What did you get with your car?

I haven't noticed any mention of freebies on these forums, but I'm assuming that others received a goody-box like I did? On handover I was given a nice white cardboard box like a chocolate box. Inside was my We Charge card, and also some surprising random gifts including these socks: PXL_20210111_0...

Where are the USB sockets in my ID.3 Life, please ?
Didn't check back here very soon. Just like someone already mentioned, there are 4 USB-C. If you need type A ones I believe you are out of luck.

Re: Volume buttons uncontrollable.

The strip under the screen is ok but not easy to use when driving. I suppose I'm just too old fashioned expecting buttons to work when you press them. Never did like swiping. You can swipe on the buttons on the steering wheel. I do that both for the stereo and for controlling the cruise control, fo...

Re: Noob question regarding supercharger

Yes, I'm starting to believe that's the case. I'm going to be very amazed if they manage to pull it off in the ME2.1 or any future update. Also, the 280km of highway driving is without any heating at all, and I believe the battery is pre-heated, but even then I doubt it'll manage that distance. I g...

Re: Car lock

Had the exact same issue a couple of days ago. I put the key in the front-centre cup holder just like scott28tt mentioned above but the crucial part here is not time but to hit the break to start "ignition". I put the key on the icon in the cup holder and as soon as I hit the break with the key ther...

Re: Frozen Bonnet

Hi Yes i had a similar problem this weekend but with the charging flap which would not open. I then warmed the car by turning on the A/C through the app and the flap did eventually open but then would not stay shut unless you pushed it closed and locked the car. Now when you unlock the car the flap...
