Hello members. Cold Weather has hit the Carolinas (below freezing last evening and forecasted for the next couple of nights). On my drive to work this morning, it was a crisp 27 degrees. I know we have members in DC/Atlanta/NY/Chi/Denver/Washington, etc). Therefore, I thought it may help to share with everyone the Cold Weather Charging Consideration (source -Fisker Owner Handbook):
"Do not allow the vehicle to remain in temperature extremes for long periods without being driven or plugged in. When not operating the vehicle it is recommended that the vehicle be plugged in and charging when temperatures are below 32 degrees F (0 degrees C). Note: Keep the vehicle plugged in, even when fully charged, in order to keep the battery temperature prepared for the next drive. This is important when outside temperatures are extremely cold.
Stay warm (both all of you and your awesome Fiskers).
Please feel free to share any other cold weather advice or tips/tricks to keep our vehicles safe and sustainable.
maybe the mods can add this to the first post?
