    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.

    As far as I was told, HK is not getting the auto-close charger port because of the larger connector we use.

    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.
