My past VWs did, but I don't think my last one did (2014 Passat TDI)Most cars do this as it prevents power draw off the battery when the car isn't running preventing the 12 volt battery from running down. I have never owned a car that kept the power ports on when the car was off.
Problem is that the button does more than just On/Off. Like the ignition key in an old timey car there are three modes (well four if you count Off): Accessory, On and Start/Run. Which mode you get depends on whether or not you are pressing the brake pedal:The car really has a constant 12v, just leave it on. Unfortunately, it won't let you lock it and walk away like that and someone can get in and drive off even without the fob.
The button should be labeled "on off" not engine start stop. I don't like how much they forced things to behave like a conventional car......
But I understand.
Other than the fact that some hybrids like the Niro keep a conventional transmission what ICE centric features are you talking about that EVs could do without? I'm curious because I actually find Tesla's approach somewhat off putting as it seems they are trying hard to be different for the sake of being different. One of my co-workers has a Model 3 and the lack of a traditional keyfob bugs her, sure she could buy one, but why should she have too? The lack of a more conventional dash is another "feature" I could do without. I think Tesla's EV tech is amazing, but their interior and user interface designs? Ehhhh.What bothers me more is just the opposite. Mfrs jamming the EV round peg into the conventional square hole. With the exception of Tesla; HEVs, PIHEVs and pure EVs attempt to act like conventional ICE powered cars sacrificing many of their advantages. I don't like it...... but I understand. They gotta sell cars to the average ICE car owner, not so much the geek.
OK.. I am rather confused about this.Many examples...creep in gear, arbitrary regen when the accelerator is released, unwanted friction braking, lack of control using engine, yes, key fob etc. Tesla gives you control over many of those for ICE owners stuck in their ways.
Yeah, I;m with Roadkill401 here, most of these are not "trying to be like an ICE vehicle" at all but are just related to the fact that a hybrid, PHEV or otherwise, is not an actual BEV..Many examples...creep in gear, arbitrary regen when the accelerator is released, unwanted friction braking, lack of control using engine, yes, key fob etc. Tesla gives you control over many of those for ICE owners stuck in their ways.
