You can adjust the charging current for an AC charger. Select an appropriate charging current for the charger used.

If the charging process does not start or abruptly stops in the middle, re-select another proper current and retry charging the vehicle.

Charging time varies depending on which charging current is selected.

Winter Mode

A: EV Settings

  1. Winter Mode

  2. Winter Mode

This mode is recommended to improve driving and DC charging performance during winter by raising the battery temperature to an adequate level. However, this may reduce the distance to empty significantly as the high voltage battery consumes a lot more electricity.

Also, if the battery temperature is low during driving or when scheduled air conditioner/heater is activated, this mode is operated to improve driving performance.

However, when the battery level is low, the mode is not operated to improve driving distance.


This mode is available for the vehicles equipped with the battery heater.

Utility Mode

When driving is not necessary such as while camping or when stopping the vehicle for a long time, it is possible to use the electrical devices (audio, lights, etc.) for long hours.

The high voltage battery is used instead, to maintain the 12V auxiliary battery, for operating the convenient 12V features of the vehicle.
