I collected my Taycan 4s yesterday. This is UK model with £20,000 worth of extras. I’d worked on the basis that even without wireless Apple CarPlay I’d be able to charge my phone wirelessly using the Qi charger in the armrest that I’ve seen lots of photos of on the Taycan Forums. It transpires that the UK 4s doesn’t appear to come with a Qi charger installed. I’ve checked the manual it it says it’s country dependant and to activate wireless charging in the ‘Phone’ screens on the PCM but the setting doesn’t appear. Physically the arm rest looks the same as the version I’ve seen online and even has cooling vents where the Qi charger should be but when ‘clipped’ into position with the screen facing away it doesn’t charge. Have any other UK users had this issue at all?

What kind of phone and case? Do you have a metal plate in your case for a magnetic mount?

Nope - although the hardware may be present as it looks identical to the US version sans a sticker with the “Qi“ logo advising which way to place the phone to charge.

Jeez, this is beginning to feel like a 996 (technology wise) with an electric motor.....

Yip, not very clever. Even the company pull cars have wireless charging and working car infotainment systems. VW may I add!

I don’t get why it’s different based on countries with Europe. Very strange, you would assume CE marking on the kit and deployment to the countries in Europe all being the same. Such a pita, but I suppose using a cable will charge and connect Apple car play so I suppose it’s not that bad. Unitil wireless car play comes then I’ll be peed off!

That is crazy. Maybe the hardware is there and it will be a s/w update to activate at some point?
