I have a 16 all electric that is only driven about 25 miles a week. Is it bad to leave it plugged in all the time?
It's over 104F or below -4F. But due to a presumed bug that causes the car's HV battery pack to deliberately self-destruct if the 12V battery goes flat - even if the car is plugged in, we are currently uncertain about the applicability of this advice. Occasional mid-day incursions over 104 F is unlikely to damage the battery if it is stored at 60 percent SOC or so. Store the car in a shaded area in hot climates.Doesn't it need to be plugged in when its over 104 degrees f or under 15 degrees f according to the manual?
