  • It is recommended that the vehicle is left plugged into the home charging point, at all times:
    • This will keep the Drive Battery at a maximum state of charge and so maintain the 12V battery.
    • The vehicle will only charge as required and will not continuously draw charge.
  • If leaving the vehicle plugged in consciously is not feasible, then check the charge level every 30 days and recharge if below 50%.
    • When charging in both cases ensure that Pre-Conditioning is enabled (via the Touch Screen), to circulate the vehicle AC system.
  • Every 14 days roll it Forward/Backward ¼ turn to prevent tyre flats spots.
  • Any surface corrosion on the brake discs, will be removed by gentle application of brakes during first few stops at low speed
