2015 i3 Rex, i4 M50 Spartanburg PC delivery 8/4/22 traded in Volvo XC40 EV
Our 2015 i3 has automatic parking as well. Only parallel, the car is looking for a gap and parks itself. On a busy road I think this feature is too complicated and I never use it as I am faster doing this myself. But I think it is a neat trick.He sat with me and took me through the steps:
push the park assist button next to the gear shifter
on the screen go to vehicle apps/driving settings/driver assistance/parking and maneuvering
make sure automatic parking is switched on
drive slowly past parking spaces; you will see on the screen images of the cars you pass and the car is measuring the spaces
it indicate a grey box that is good to park in pass it until your car is just past the space and stop. Put into reverse.
tap the highlighted grey space
lift your foot off the brake and let go of the wheel. Keep your foot ready to stop if you need to.
this works for parallel and perpendicular parking.
