Important Information about
Portable Electric Vehicle Charging
. Charging an electric vehicle can
stress a building’s electrical
system more than a typical
household appliance.
. Before plugging into any
electrical outlet, have a qualified
electrician inspect and verify the
electrical system (electrical
outlet, wiring, junctions, and
protection devices) for
heavy-duty service at a 12 amp
continuous load.
. Electrical outlets may wear out
with normal usage or may be
damaged over time, making
them unsuitable for electric
vehicle charging.
. Check the electrical outlet/plug
while charging and discontinue
use if the electrical outlet/plug is
hot, then have the electrical
outlet serviced by a qualified
electrician.
. When outdoors, plug into an
electrical outlet that is
weatherproof while in use.
. Mount the charge cord to reduce
strain on the electrical
outlet/plug.
. Do not place the charge cord in
a position where it is expected to
be submerged in water.
{ Danger
Improper use of portable electric
vehicle charge cords may cause
a fire, electrical shock, or burns,
and may result in damage to
property, serious injury, or death.
. Do not use extension cords,
multi-outlet power strips,
splitters, grounding
adaptors, surge protectors,
or similar devices.

the energy from the moving vehicle
and turns it back into electrical
energy. This energy is then stored in
the high voltage battery system,
contributing to increased energy
efficiency.
Regen on Demand
This feature is activated using the
steering wheel paddle. Regen on
Demand slows the vehicle by
recapturing energy.

Tire Pressure Monitor
This vehicle may have a Tire
Pressure Monitor System (TPMS).
The low tire pressure warning light
alerts to a significant loss in
pressure of one of the vehicle's
tires. If the warning light comes on,
stop as soon as possible and inflate
the tires to the recommended
pressure shown on the Tire and
Loading Information label. See

Vehicle Load Limits 0 200. The
warning light will remain on until the
tire pressure is corrected.
The low tire pressure warning light
may come on in cool weather when
the vehicle is first started, and then
turn off as the vehicle is driven. This
may be an early indicator that the
tire pressures are getting low and
the tires need to be inflated to the
proper pressure.
The TPMS does not replace normal
monthly tire maintenance. Maintain
the correct tire pressures.
See Tire Pressure Monitor System
0 285.
Driving for Better Energy
Efficiency
Use the following tips to help
maximize energy efficiency and
range.
In colder temperatures, while these
efficiency tips will help, the electric
vehicle driving range may be lower
due to higher energy usage.
Acceleration/Braking/Coasting
Avoid unnecessary rapid
accelerations and decelerations.
Electric range is maximized at
89 km/h (55 mph) and below. Higher
speeds use more energy and can
significantly reduce electric range.
Use cruise control when
appropriate.
Plan ahead for decelerations and
coast whenever possible. For
example, do not rush to traffic
signals.
Do not shift to N (Neutral) to coast.
The vehicle recovers energy while
coasting and braking in D (Drive)
or L (Low).
Climate Setting
Using the heat and air conditioning
systems decreases the energy
available for electric driving.
Optimal energy efficiency is
achieved with the heat, air
conditioning, and fan turned off.
Operating with the climate control
system off is the most energy
efficient climate setting.
Use the heated seat feature instead
of climate settings. Heating the seat
uses less energy than heating the
vehicle interior.
Use remote start to heat or cool the
interior when the vehicle is plugged
in to maximize the electric range by
utilizing electricity from the electrical
outlet.
In hot weather, avoid parking in
direct sunlight or use sunshades
inside the vehicle.
Turn off the front and rear window
defog/defrost when they are no
longer needed.
Avoid driving with the windows open
at highway speeds.
Vehicle Charging/Maintenance
Charging
Keep the vehicle plugged in, even
when fully charged, to keep the
battery temperature ready for the

next drive. This is important when
outside temperatures are extremely
hot or cold.
Maintenance
Always keep the tires properly
inflated and the vehicle properly
aligned.
The weight of excess cargo in the
vehicle affects efficiency and range.
Avoid carrying more than is needed.
Avoid unnecessary use of electrical
accessories. Power used for
functions other than propelling the
vehicle will reduce EV range.
Using a rooftop carrier will reduce
efficiency due to additional weight
and drag.
