So the hardware is ok but need a tweak from the software. It's odd, I guess.
That is true, but this is not a US-specific forum.I thought the ID4s shipped to the IS did not have the heat pump and therefore, if true, would make this news irrelevant to US purchases?
How are you interpreting this as good behavior from VW? "Mis-communicating" to their customers, hardware that can't meet the claimed results, incoming software to lessen the impact of the (well-known) hardware shortcomings, and a fractional refund to customers is play by play from the same corporate Scandal Manual they followed for their diesels.Good overall response from VW, very promising approach for their EVs.
Disregarding all the talking and pointless charging differences, the UI calculated difference was 1.2kwh/100km. Idling, without climate control on and just the radio, my non-heat pump ID.4 draws .6 kwh/100km.there was a clear and noticeable difference.
yeah, you have a point. just did a quick calculation:Disregarding all the talking and pointless charging differences, the UI calculated difference was 1.2kwh/100km. Idling, without climate control on and just the radio, my non-heat pump ID.4 draws .6 kwh/100km.
My 1st Max with heat pump use about 7 kW on a 0C(32F) day pre-heating, was the same in -10C, and it was only running for 4-5 minutes before the cabin was nice and cozy. This power usage included heated windshield and rear window as well.My id4 warmed fine in colder temps(32f) (no heatpump) within 5 mins. It's just the 9kw hit on my usage to warmup the batteries. Short 60mph commutes (30km) were like 250 wh/km. (400wh/mi(?)).
Good ol' days. See ya soon again
