Electric and Hybrid Cars

Is it safe to open the electric/hybrid charging socket flap in wet/winter conditions?

Yes, absolutely. There’s no risk of you getting an electric shock, and it will not affect the car. There is a drain in the connector, and charging only starts after the car has performed a self-check to make sure it’s fine to begin charging.
