Unfortunately, there is no setting to keep the charging cable unlocked. The system was designed for European owners who bring their own charging cable to commercial stations. It's a theft prevention measure. I agree with you that North American owners should have the option to leave it unlocked.Is there a setting so that the charge port does not lock the plug when the car is unlocked?
Now when we plug the car in when in the garage unlocked, we still have to unlock the car to get the car to release the plug.
