Exclamation 12kWh PHEV is not charging to 12 kWh

Hello There,

IS anybody using ChargePoint charging stations and verifying their charge history? If so, you'll be able to see if a complete charge (from ---- on EV range gauge) is anywhere close to 12 kWh.


I own a 2018 PHEV and since the first day I bought it IT NEVER took more than about 8.4 kWh, on a COMPLETE charge.

That means that the battery is either faulty or the 12 kWh is a myth.

Any other experiences similar?

I guess a situation like this might call for running a battery health test.
Have you spoke to your dealer about this issue as yet? Ruling out its the battery would be my first before moving onto other things.

Claimed numbers are often less in the real world, but that's a pretty large disparity. If its only charging to 8.4 kWh, what sort of electric range are you getting? Is the battery pack reading 100% when you hit that cap?

Apparently a loss of 20% over the life of these Outlanders is to be expected but if that's what's happening right now, its just too soon. Something is definitely up and worth taking into the dealer if you haven't already.
Odds are there's some diagnosis that'll help to determine what's going on.
