  • According to this video: seworld.info/will/kJ6RztDeZqqk0aM/video the heatpump in the ID3 doesn't work at all. They compared it to an ID3 without heatpump and they had the same energy consumption.

  • At low temperatures a heat-pump regularly defrost the heat exchanger. That maybe also an explanation for the peak of consumption. Though I don't know why Model 3 or e-Niro don't do that. Another system maybe.

  • Interesting video. I think the car also takes some power when preheating. I did a test and went down to town and home took 27% electricity. and it is a journey to and from about 20 km. with preheating, I think I will not get more than about 130km with 100% on the battery, city driving in Elverum Norway in the winter. The longest I have gotten out of the car is 337km at 100% it was November 1st. with studded tires. Thanks forgreat videos.

  • I tested my eTron with OBD11 recently and found that cold-starting and idling the car does not heat the battery, only the cabin. At 7C outside and 21C inside the heat pump was pulling about 500-700W.

  • Maybe ID3 uses more energy while idling because it has no camping/utility mode? Car thinks it has to drive of any moment and therefore heats up the battery?

  • I know I am laying my head on the chopping block now. But i'm not convinced that kWh/h is so wrong. Let's say it stood 2kWh/minute it would correspond to 120 kWh/h. 2 kWh/h for a hole day shuld correspond to 48kWh/24 hours. O.186 kWh/km is the same. On my utillity bill, they stated that my expected years consumption for my house was 37789 kWh/year. I can admitt it looks wierd with kWh/h. But not all things that look wierd are wrong.

    Kjetil ValøyKjetil Valøy3 dagar sedan
    • @Bjørn Nyland I think VW is trying to display how much energy will be drawn from the battery in one hour if the current consumption were to last for one hour. For the regular person it is easier to understand, they don’t understand what kW and kWh are. But when you say: “At the current rate, the consumption will be x kWh for 1 hour” and they know they have a battery with e.g., 50 kWh capacity, maybe it’s easier to understand. It’s actually like an ICE car, when they have the engine running while parked. It displays l/h, not how much power the engine is using. Liters and kWh are a unit of energy while kW is a unit of power. It is also more consistent to use kWh/h and kWh/100km.

      Kjetil ValøyKjetil Valøy2 dagar sedan
    • Why is Kia and other car manufacturers displaying power in kW then?

  • Can I give you an advice? Place the window's cover with the shining side to point inside the car, if you haven't done that already. That way you will reflect more heat inside the cabin! Great video!

  • Bjorn is it possible that when the cars energy consumption goes up to potentially heat the battery that the heat is leaking out somewhere and interfering with the outside temperature sensor?

    • i don´t think they will improve it. Camping is a rather specific usecase and the ID3 is not build for that. It´s much more build for daily driving without long road trips in mind.

  • Hey Björn - did you set the heating system to circulating air? Otherwise the heatpump has to always heat up cold air and warm air is being pushed out the gaps. This would surely make for big energie loses.

  • Are you taking into account fresh air intake into the car? Even with the HVAC on recirculate, there is typically a minimum amount of fresh air coming in from outside. The rate of fresh air coming in is also 1:1 proportional to the air being exhausted, which is done through the vents at the rear of the car. If these are plugged (perhaps with a mattress or insulation from camping), the amount of fresh air will be minimal, and will reduce the heating load.

  • Can it also depend on where the temperature sensor sits? If it sits near the vents than maybe it requires less energy as if the same temperature need to be maintained by the same sensor that might measure in the back of the car...

  • The car (when "on") want the battery to be at least 11°C and the batteryheater pulls about 5kW (12A).

    Leif AlbihnLeif Albihn3 dagar sedan
  • Like others have said, I'm pretty sure the 8kW power draw is when the evaporator (outside) is defrosting. If it works like a house heat pump it'll start running in A/C mode to heat up the outdoor coil and thus it's probably using a PTC heater inside so it doesn't start cooling the inside of the car while you're trying to stay warm.

As for the heatpump in ID3, nextmove made a video a few months back (i belive) where they found that the heatpump ID3 actually drew more power as another ID3 with excact same configuration but without heatpump. Both cars were stationary at the same spot (at the same time side by side).
