Recommendations for long-term storage

If you don't plan to drive your vehicle for a prolonged period of time (longer than 1 month), please follow these recommendations for long-term storage. Make sure that the battery has a sufficient charge level and make it a habit to check the vehicle regularly during the long-term storage period.

Preparing for long-term storage

  • The recommended charge level for long-term storage is between 40% and 50%. Set the recommended charge level in the center display.
    • If the charge level is higher than this recommended level, drive the vehicle until it has reached the recommended level.
    • If the charge level is lower than recommended, charge the vehicle to the recommended level.
  • The recommended tire inflation pressure during long-term storage is 330 kPA (48 PSI). Check the inflation pressure of the tires and adjust to the correct pressure, which can be found on the vehicle's tire information decal or certification label.

During long-term storage

  • Make sure that the charging cable is plugged into a 120/240 V outlet (alternating current).
  • Check the charge level regularly and charge to an appropriate level if it falls below 20%.
  • If you plan to store the vehicle for longer than 3 months, it is recommended that the vehicle has a constant AC (alternating current) charge connected, with a maximum charge level set to 40% or 50%. Check regularly to make sure the AC charging is working.


Store the vehicle in as cool a location as possible to minimize batteries aging during long-term storage. In the summer, park the vehicle indoors or in a shady location, whichever is cooler.

After long-term storage

  • Check the brakes by driving the vehicle slowly for a short distance. Depress the brake pedal five times (hold down for five seconds each time).
