      any information about time control for home charging the T8?

      Electricity rates in CA are time variable, with the cheapest by far being between midnight and 7am. Tesla recognized that and lets you program the car to charge at a certain time, you keep it plugged in but it only charges late at night, the time feature is part of the internal car software. Has anyone heard whether or not the XC90 T8 will have a feature like this or if their plug in hybrid already active in Europe has that feature built in? Would rather be able to control this via the car than having to pay higher evening rates.

      In Europe we also can select Day/Night-time energy rates. Like Tesla the V60 PIH has the possibility to program the desired charging starting time. If you have the Sensus-option, including the app, you can set and modify the timer with help of your smartphone. You can even connect it to the charge-location so you can program different start-/ending-times when charging at different locations.
      I presume the T8 will get exactly the same.

      In Europe the T8 will be charged with 230~ Volt, single-phase electricity, at 13 A.
