Good Morning,

I have a 6 months old GTE with 15000 kms on it. Winter has arrived in Stockholm and suddenly in cold temperatures (below -5 degrees C) the car refuses to start in e-mode even though fully charged. Works fine in hybrid mode. I've not found anything in the manual about this. Anyone know why or have the same problem?

Kind regards
Daniel

If it is -10 degrees celcius or below the car will not run in e-mode. If the battery has a core temperature below -28 degrees celcius the car will not start at all. This should be well known to your dealer.

I just recently bought a used Golf GTE 2015 with 20000km on the meter and was reading this, is this still the case or have they fixed it via any software updates?
When I ask the dealer here in Stockholm they claim "they have never heard about this".
