    That sounds like what a certain EV company has done, OBD-II port with CAN (which isn't a true OBD-II connector even) only has the minimum info via a gateway to keep the regulators happy, the rest is locked down and uses Ethernet.

    Ridiculous how they haven't gotten fined for literally not having an obd2 connector... It's just some stupid little socket smoshed in the corner. Supposeably some actually are hooked up but the one I looked at had power.... And that's it.

    It's not even about tuning anymore. Any independent shop is just screwed if this is how things are going. Won't matter how many thousands you spend on that nice snap on scanner.

    Of course we all know what John Deere has done with regards to right to repair, that is the way it is all heading.

    Why do you need a ODB port in an EV? It's zero emissions and they don't need maintiance or break? That was trying to be sarcastic but sadly it's true... I think?

    Valid point and probably why they don't need to fit one.
