I have 2017 Audi A3 e-tron.
I don't find EV drive switch the battery charge mode only Battery hold mode.
This is my second A3 e-tron. First car 2016 modell but have 4 position in Ev mode.
EV, EV Hybrid, Battery hold and Battery charge mode.
But now my 2017 modell car missing the EV battery charged position.
Can anyone say something about this problem?
Is it possible to solve this?
Thank you
Audi permanently removed the feature on newer models. Perhaps they felt it was a poor use of fossil fuels, since there was energy loss going into and out of the battery.
