Bought the car this summer and didn't think to test heat. Now, in the cool weather, only seems to produce heat when in regular hybrid mode when gas engine runs. I understood that the EV mode heat was created from a coil or other method (EG, heat pump?). Dealer says no heat in EV mode, you've got to run engine. I find this hard to believe. I'd suggest there's something wrong with supplemental heat system.
Please advise.
Thanks!
Fritz Golman.

In EV mode cabin heat comes from a 5 kW resistance heating element.  Your dealer is probably not an electric certified dealer.

That's what I figured. Didn't sound logical to me.

Thank you.
