Hello - On the 23' cars outfitted with a new heat pump system the engine does not have to run to power the heat pump, the heat pump is powered directly by the high voltage battery.mellobob wrote: ↑Tue Apr 04, 2023 11:48 am I have a '23 GT Canadian and notice that very often driving about in B3 with the temp around 0-10 C (warmest it's been so far) that according to the usage display the ICE is on, but not connected to the front wheels or the battery. I assume it running the heat pump? However, if I I try to go to EV at this point it refuses with a "can't do this message". Changing the mode to D turns the ICE off and permits EV mode.
This make any sense?
If you avoid using higher than B2 and not use Innovative pedal, the engine should not run. However, during cold weather the engine may start at times to warm to 150-180 degrees then shut down again.
