I put this here because it brings up information that I thought might be true for the ID.4. The Tesla tested uses strip heater similar to ID.4 and not a heat pump.

Interesting data around frequent stops between charging session (every 100 miles vs every 200 miles), to exploit the high charge rate of the car and save time on charging overall. He got 1.5 additional full charges in the same time.

Interesting data from a trusted source indeed. Not surprising however.

It's always been this way for batteries. Cold storage is good to maximize charge (not connected to any drain) but under operation is another story. [used to store avionics batteries in a refrigerator alongside the EAF flight line a long time ago in a high desert far, far away. ;) ]

btw: not to bash Tesla as I'm still considering the 'Y' however:

I was intrigued by this as well! Here is a question I have for anyone who might know the answer.: If your ID.4 is left on a home charger overnight or longer, does the charging system (either onboard the car or outboard via the home charging system) throttle down to a fully charged / standby mode?

Yes [at least for my ChargePoint] it does "throttle down" when it hits the designated, well, charge point (I plan to set the optimal 80%, via App).

Inside EVs has a good list of cold weather charging tips for EVs. One that I didn't know what about the difference parking in direct sunlight can have.
