With a Volkswagen e-Golf you use the CCS connector.
It could be that there is a plastic cover, covering the bottom part of the charge port. If so, this plastic cover needs to be removed in order to plug in the CCS connector.
The charge speed is up to 40 kW at all of our chargers. In the charge curve below you can see the charge speed of the e-Golf. On average, the e-Golf charges 100 km of range in 20 - 25 minutes. Charging behaviour largely depends on battery size:
- 24,2 kWh edition: fast charging until 75%, charging will go slower after this
- 36 kWh edition: fast charging until 80%, charging will go slower after this
The charge curve below shows the charging behaviour of this car when the battery is in optimal conditions (around. 30°C). A colder (or warmer) battery can result is a significantly lower charge speed. More information about what influences the charge speed can be found on this page.
Unfortunately it is not possible to use Autocharge with a Volkswagen e-Golf.
Tip 1: After a failed charging attempt (i.e. a communication error), it is always needed to reconnect the plug into to the car.
Tip 2: If the connector remains locked when charging is finished, you can unlock the connector by using the car keys to lock and unlock the doors. The car will then unlock the connector as well.
Above information is largely also applicable for the VW e-Crafter and the MAN e-TGE.
