Since there are a few owners now and there were reports that large phones cannot fit into the phone charging slot underneath the driver's armrest, could somebody take a few pictures with a measurement tape, please? My phone currently is 16 cm x 7.7 cm. Also what charging options are available?

Is there a wireless charger in console? If so does it work well?

The picture above is of the wireless charger.
Thanks, just read about it, thought was cool, wanting the wireless induction pad to charge the car. Hadn't used wireless to charge my phone, didn't know if it was slower or faster than the cable.

Wireless induction charging is always slower than wired charging given the same power output.

Thank you!!! This is the first proper picture of this space inside the car I have seen.

So there are 2 USB Type-C sockets. Are there anywhere any more USB sockets or 12V charging options?

It easily fits the iPhone 11 Pro Max with room to spare.
Thank you!!! Excellent picture! So this phone is 15.8 x 7.8 cm which means any phone up to 18 x 9 cm (6.7 x 3.5 inch) should just fit in there.

There are two more USB-C sockets above the "driveshaft" hump, in the back seat area.

The trunk area has a 12V socket, in addition to the 12V socket in the center console picture that Reg shared.
