(I am still waiting on ANYONE to give me some idea of what is going on here...)

* Update * - got the car back from the workshop, they said the car was fine, no errors detected. Plugged it in on my way home: - 'Electric Drive not working correctly. Please visit workshop.' the charge then dropped to under 1kw. I stopped and disconnected the charger and restarted the car. I then got this message: 'Performance is restricted. Please consult vehicle wallet.' (Two errors on the dash, electric drive and performance restricted) Had to limp the car home. Called the dealer, they collected the car. Now I have another courtesy car after getting mine back for 1 day. Since getting my car in December I have tried charging it at public stations 4 times, every time I have had the 'electric drive not working' error, not once have I completed a charge, but the errors clear themselves after I park and get out the car for a while.

Ive now emailed the workshop photos of the errors. On top of the 50kw charging nonsense i am loosing my patience with this car. The most annoying thing is the dealership doesn't seem to be able to diagnose the issue, and since they cant diagnose it, (they have used the 22kw charger at the garage and said it works fine) there isn't an issue, and they don't seem to understand that if I had driven any significant distance and needed to quick charge, I would be stranded. A comparison would be not being able to refuel a ICE car... It is not acceptable.

If anyone has any clue to what is going on here can you please let me know.

I have no clue what’s going on - but; The garage 22kw charger must be a 3 phase AC charger. The 50 kw fast chargers are DC and that’s very different; if the garage don’t know that you have no hope!! They need to check the DC charging circuitry.

Is there any way to check if your car actually came with the upgraded 100kw / 120kw charging (without actually trying it on a fast charger)?
Just found a way to check what charge rate my Enyaq is fitted with.

I used a home automation platform called ioBroker, then added the VW Connect adaptor, within that is a selection for the Enyaq. Simply add your email and logon details (same as your Skoda Connect).

Open up the files within the Objects and hey presto, all the basic specification is available to view. Tons of other stuff that I have no idea either !

I installed ioBroker on an old Raspberry Pi 3, but you can use a pc or whatever you wish to install it.

Heres a screen shot of mine showing the 100kW charge rate :-

Although undoubtably impressive, I was hoping for something a bit simpler. :D

I will perhaps get myself over to the Cobham M25 Ionity in the next couple of days

I agree that you have to be a little computer savvy, but its all free and with a bit more programming also has the advantage of connecting to Amazon Alexa and Google Home seamlessly so you can control your Enyaq remote functions by just talking to it !

Now that is impressive lol. :D

Could you use it to start and stop a charge at a certain time?

Well if it works on the current Skoda App it should work on this. To be honest I've not tried it yet.

I've just used this ioBroker software to check my charge limit, I've not had time to go into the programming of it.

But I'm sure someone will come up with the answer on here.

Regarding the original question ins the £500 upgrade, I had this link saved…. Not sure if it’s what you were looking for. Not even sure it’s valid in the UK? Can’t see why it wouldn’t be but when has that ever mattered?
