I'm temporarily driving a 2017/18 model right now, and locking the doors locks the cable to the car,so problem solved...

Still with a type 1 connector? Didn't know these supported locking by the vehicle.

Yes. A huge clonk from the plug.

Are you sure it’s locking the cable? In the US that clonk is locking the charging door, but not the cable (which is pretty useless).

when naughty people realise that EV cables cost from £100-300 depending on length, connectors and Amp rating - they will start nicking them. They'll either strip them for copper and weigh them in or sell on gumtree or ebay
a £200 cable will sell 2nd hand half price for a £100, so that's a hundred quid for a 1 min easy steal.



Really? - you've obviously never stripped cable. It is very time consuming and all you get is worth a few pence - and you need a lot to them justify the trip to the scrapyard. :lol:

And who is going to buy one on ebay? - only another EV owner who's had theirs stolen/damaged. There's no market :lol: In London these scrotes are too busy stealing mobile phones to bother with cable.

All locking does is stop mindless vandalism and may just annoy someone by locking it to actually damage the car instead. :twisted:

When the plug is in the door is open... I will give it a pull :)

Don't know about the UK, but over here PHEV were delivered without public charge cable. At least in 2013 they were. Had to buy one separately for about 350,- EURO. Looking back, EBay doesn't sound so bad .... ;)

Ah! Sorry for fake news...:( It is indeed the flap lock. As the car socket is new it is a lot stiffer than mine and gave me the impression of being locked.
