Hi, I have a question for the owners who have a motorized charging door installed.
Can it close automatically if you start driving with the charging door open?

yes it closes automatically shortly after unplugging the cord - this in my opinion is it’s main feature advantage - un-plug - walk away - it closes.

The best thing about the motorised port is that you can’t knock the flap off with your legs. I managed to knock off 4 charging flaps on my Mercedes PHEV, absolutely stupid design for something that’s needs to stay open for so long.

I was thinking the same thing, the location of the port door on the taycan lends itself to easily being ripped off the car by accident. while I usually shy away from "silly" tech like the powered port door in this application it seems to be a good choice.
