I was rooting around looking for somewhere to attach a 12v charger plug, (for a 12v smart charger), and I saw this square hole just under the front plate.
With a torch I could make out the radiator, but sitting in front of that was something that looked like either an electrical connector or valve - sitting around 8-10cm back.
So this hole is its access point, but anyone had a prod around to see what it is?

I saw someone mentioned that it's for the external temperature sensor
Gives me an idea.
EVs seriously underperforms in range when it鈥檚 cold, like here in Sweden during the winter.

What if I plug a hair dryer into the V2L, and fasten it to the front to blow warm air into the sensor, thus tricking the car into thinking it is summer and drastically reduce the consumption.

Might look a bit odd driving down the road like that, unless you stick a fluffy Garfield bum on the hairdryer.
