Title
(EN) Impact energy absorbing vehicle charging port support arrangement
Abstract
(EN)

A vehicle charging port arrangement is provided with a vehicle body, a charging port support member and an electric charging port. The vehicle body includes a vehicle front end portion. The charging port support member is supported on the vehicle front end portion. The charging port support member includes an energy absorbing structure that is configured and arranged to deform towards a support structure of the vehicle front end portion and into an energy absorbing area that is disposed forward of the support structure of the vehicle front end portion during a frontal impact. The electric charging port is attached to the charging port support member, with the electric charging port being configured to receive an electric charging connector.
