Use AC charging when possible and minimize the use of DC charging. It helps to preserve your high voltage battery's efficiency and lifespan.
We recommend ending DC charges at 80% state of charge.
The system could reduce DC fast charging rate to preserve the battery. This is based on battery temperature, battery state of charge and battery health.
In cold temperatures, you may notice that DC charging takes longer when the ambient temperature drops below
50°F (10°C). Shutting off climate control or reducing climate control temperature and fan settings for the first 10 to 15 minutes of DC charging allows the battery to warm up and improve the charging rate.
When the temperature is below freezing, fully turning off cabin heat for the first 10 to 15 minutes of DC charging could significantly improve the charging rate.
When AC charging, keep your vehicle plugged in when outside temperatures are very high or low. This enables the system to maintain the high voltage battery for best performance.
