Why would you answer with question with almost no value to me ? First of all I am guessing that this is what I heard and second of all I drove also some super silent petrols and many people can t even hear those and it is my responsability as a driver to not harm anyone but as a customer I want to be in total silence if I am driving full electric which will happen alot in low sppeds. I can use the horn in a diplomatic way or switch to hybrid in order to be heard if I want but why ruin my experience inside the cabin.

Because you’re asking a stupid question mostly, and you seem to have an attitude.

The noise is not just a safety feature, it’s a legal requirement. No one here is going to tell you how to break the law just so you can enhance your experience. 🙄

Hi. Guys one important question: today I have tested exactly the 204 BHP version (until now only Cupra 245 Hybrid and Passat GTE)... and at very low speeds between 0 - 30ish km/h... I have noticed a humming sound (and I guess is the pedestrian alert, and it happens only in electric mode)... did you notice it as well and is there any way to turn it off ?
thx,
Hi, yes this is the low speed pedestrian warning. There is no way to turn it off unfortunately as its legislation from July 2019 that all EV's and PHEVs have one

It stops after 19mph so you dont really notice it tbf. It is weird when you first get it as it sounds like a dodgy bearing.:)

But is still a bit strange... why do we hear it inside if it is meant for the outside :) ? I mean I understand the safety feature but it is for pedestrian not for the ones in the car.

To be honest I am curious... I wasn't outside to see how it sounds... I mean what the pedestrians hear ?

In my line of work, I sell Sounders but you don't really hear them inside like the Seat ones. Must be cheap ones they use😆

You can turn of the speed warning, and it will stay off (without warning lights), but the traffic signs will always appear in the dash

But it will slow me down forced when it detects I am going too fast or not ?

It will do it if your on predictive ACC(with the speed signs option turned on), or you take your foot of the accelerator and let eco-tips take over to charge the battery but that's the hybrid system

It doesn't just slam the brakes on

Charging question: Is there an option to charge in 2h (with a mode 3 cable 32A 7,4 kWh) ... the car supports this ? I did now full charge only in 3,4hours from a 22kWh station but I think it can do it in 2hours if a different cable is used... hope I can find out.

I don't believe so. I'm sure I read that it will always take the 4 hours no matter how much power you give it. Not coming with a type 2 cable I've been looking at the rapid chargers with the tethered cable. But it'll not charge any faster. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Had mine since Jan but haven't charged it away from home yet

Why would they sell 7,4kWh wall chargers for PHEV as a possibility in the configurator ? at 7,4kWh we charge it in 2h and at 3,6 in 4h... must me something we are missing.
