How did my new 2018 PacHy NOT have a battery issue???
I just bought a new (20 miles on it) 2018 PacHy off the lot on 5/7/19. This vehicle must have sat around for a long long time. The included charge cable was still in the wrapper. I don't believe the dealership would even have a clue on how to charge it. I drove the vehicle about 100 miles before giving it some Type 1 charge, just to make sure it charges ok. Then drove it about another 100 miles before giving it a 95% Type 2 charge, which I then got about 30 E miles out of. It now has 400 miles on it. So it looks to me like I won't have any battery issues related to it sitting for a long time before purchase. How did my vehicle NOT experience drained batteries? Any help explaining this would be appreciated.
