I am leaving for a week and my black volt will be left sitting in the hot sun of my driveway (and it has been hot in Texas this week). From prior conversations, the consensus seemed to be that it was better to have it plugged in than to have it with a low battery. Now I wonder if there is a way to keep it at half charge and keep it plugged in so that it can use the grid to run the thermal management system but not be 100% state of charge so that the thermal management system does not have to work so hard.
I have the car programmed to delay charge on the assumption that i will leave at 6 am everyday.
Thanks for any thoughts
