Too cold for regeneration?


(David Ferguson) #1

I noticed yesterday morning that regeneration wasn’t working (no braking effect, and no regen symbol in the display). At the time, outside temperature was about -5C, and battery temperature according to the PowerBox was +1C. After a while though regeneration started working again, and the battery temperature had risen to about +2. Expected?

When you drive off after charging the battery to 100% there is no regeneration intially because the battery is totally full. After even a short distance with the battery slightly depleted there will be regeneration. I think that’s what happened rather than the temperature.

Thanks for the reply. I didn’t think the battery was 100% charged, but I’m sure you are right. Obvious in fact - kinda difficult to charge a battery that’s full already…
