Plug-In Charging (PLUG-IN Only)

This section explains the charging of the vehicle's high voltage battery. Do not allow the vehicle to remain in

extreme temperatures for long periods without being driven or plugged in.

Plug the vehicle in when temperatures are below 0 °C (32 °F) and above 32 °C

(90 °F) to maximize the life of the high voltage battery.

When using the portable charge cord included with the vehicle, it will take approximately 12.5 hours to charge

the vehicle with the 12 amp AC

current setting or 20 hours using the default 8 amp AC current setting.

When using a charging station

capable of 16 amps or more, it will take approximately 4.5 hours to

charge the vehicle. Charge times will vary with outside temperature. There are three ways to program how the

vehicle is charged. See Programmable Charging (PLUG-IN Only) 0 150.

The charging system may run fans

and pumps that result in sounds from the vehicle while it is turned off.

Additional unexpected clicking sounds may be caused by the electrical

devices used while charging.

While the charge cord is plugged into the vehicle, the vehicle cannot be

driven. Charging Start Charge
