I've had my car over 2 months and have charged it 50 times. Often when I get out I forget to open the chargeport and I have to get back in and hit the control screen and then the chargeport button. Today I was at the Hawthorne S/C and was speaking to a design engineer named Javier. I mentioned to him that it would be great if you could open the port from outside the car. You can!!! All you do is push the button on he charging head and the port pops open. This works at the S/C's and with the cord supplied with the car. I thought the button was only used to pull the cord out of the car.
I felt like an idiot that I didn't know this. Am I the only one? Another guy who was at the S/C was surprised to see this feature so I didn't feel like I was the lone mushroom. But I am curious how such an convenient and obvious feature was hidden from me for two months.
