Our charger manufacturer (ABB) was able to solve the technical problem on the 175 kW chargers, which led to charging problems for the e-Golf.
At the 175 kW chargers in Germany this problem will also be solved in the coming weeks. Of course you can still charge at one of the 50 kW chargers. Apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.
With a Volkswagen e-Golf or e-up! you use the CCS plug. Ensure that the plug is connected properly.
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:
- 26 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
Tip: 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.
