What does the "Stand by" status in the home screen mean?

The standby status means that your EV is connected to the EV app but your car is not ready to participate in an equivent.

It means you’re set up: your EV is connected and smart charging is enabled. However, your EV is not ready to participate in equivents.

Your EV will be ready to participate if an equivent starts when:

  • Your EV is plugged in and charging
  • You are charging at home
  • The battery level is above your selected preference
