I just learnt that all dual motor car in the US equipped with self closing charge door (auto close in a couple of seconds after remove the charger), but it seems not happening on my 70D. Anyone got the same?

Auto-close is only available with the US-style charging port.

The European-style charging port we use in HK does not have that capability.

I always think that the port should open in the other direction. That way there's a small chance the air resistance when we drive, will close the port for us.
