Cold weather=not full power?

Ok, so 1°C today and I notice the little blue bar indicating power doesn’t go all the way… Suspect this is the battery being cold, and not being able to deliver full power to the motor?

Do you have an E-Boost, and was it in Cupra mode. If you do and it wasn't, maybe that could be the reason? Or maybe, doing 0 mph/0 kmph, it won't give you everything until you're rolling?

I had that a few of times on my ID3. I think it’s when the battery heater and cabin heater is running. Between them they use 10kW (7kW for the battery heater I think).

So if you floor it not all power is available as it’s being used for that.
