(Wow, I just realized I resurrected a thread from 6 years ago.)
rickbol wrote:That there is no indication of current charge rate available in the car interface(s) somewhere blows my mind. I forsee the future situation where the "smart grid" "manages" the maximum current deliverable to a number of chargers by kicking them down to a lower level of charge in order to accommodate more connections (without exceeding max current for the given infrastructure).
Geez, that's a feature that should be added to a firmware update.
Not many other EVs/PHEVs display it in the vehicle either. Tesla Model S can though. At the time rickbol asked for this, the first Model S hadn't shipped yet. 1st delivery didn't happen until June 2012.
As for what you foresee, it's already available. See https://www.chargepoint.com/products/po ... ement-faq/
. I only became aware of it when a Chargepoint rep came to a meeting w/our facilities person who's been assigned charging station-related duties. I attended since I'm an enthusiast and had been communicating w/facilities a bunch relating to our EV charging situation.
As for the feature... use Leaf Spy. This is probably the 1st time I've hear for such an ask in the UI of the car here on MNL and I've been on the forum since mid-2011. Your ask would be nowhere near the top of a list of top 20 feature requests.
