Hello there.
Not been able to drive for a couple of days so I thought I would ask my question here vs testing it.

Can you pull away from a charging station/charging while the car is plugged in?

This is one of my (many) nightmares :) hearing the sound as that nice and firmly inserted connection rips out the charging port of my car or the charger I am connected to.

So does the car go into drive whilst connected?

I imagine this is even more likely in a home charging scenario if it does go whilst connected. Jumping into your car in an emergency and ….

curios :)

Dragged arse to car and as it was low on charge went off to fill it and to test this question.

Doesn't work with my Volvo XC40 nor my Tesla X. Tested both and you can't put them in Drive or Reverse while charging from electric.

If only that was true for ICEs!

I always (used to) stand and watch, but so many people just hop back in their driver's seat and start fiddling with their cellular pacifiers because, you know, 2 minutes away is 2 minutes too many.
