I have some questions about this battery for which I could not find fully decisive answers yet.

The first is about the capacity and the usable capacity. It seems 90% of the total capacity is usable. But what is the 28 kWh? Is that the usable capacity, so that the total capacity is 31 kWh? Or is the 28 kWh the total capacity and is the usable capacity 25 kWh? This makes a difference when you want to estimate the range out of the car's efficiency.

The second question is about battery conditioning. On the UK Website it is written:

Battery conditioning
The integrated heating system warms the
high-voltage battery to maximise both charging
performance and driving range in low-temperature conditions.


To which temperature is the battery heated? Only to just above the freezing point? Or to room temperature or even higher? This can make much difference in reducing the winter dip in the range.

we know little about the EV version yet, Ade will be the first on here to take delivery


we know there is a battery warming function when the car is plugged in and charging, as well a the function to pre-heat the cabin when plugged in as well


from page H6 in the manual
High Voltage Battery Warmer
System
The high voltage battery warmer
system prevents reduction of battery
output when battery temperature is
low. If the charging connector is connected, the warmer system automatically operate according to the battery temperature.
Charging time may shorten compare
to vehicles without the high voltage
battery warmer system. But, electricity charge may increase because of
high voltage battery warmer system
operation.

CAUTION
The high voltage battery warmer
system operates when the charging connector is connected to
the vehicle.
However, the high voltage
warmer system may not operate
when battery temperature drops
below -35°C (-31°F).

also page H10 in manual


Set Departure and Climate
Description
1 Set anticipated departure time after
charging
2 Set temperature inside the vehicle
3 Select the day of the week you wish
to charge your vehicle



and you can set the charge time for cheap electric times
Off-peak Time Settings
Description
1
If selected, starts charging only on
the designated off-peak time
If deselected, starts charging only on
the scheduled time
2 Set the most inexpensive time to start
charging
3 Set the most inexpensive time to
complete charging

No idea about the usable battery, but for warming up the car I assume it still has an engine temperature indicator even though it's an electric motor and anything above the C is good enough for me.
