Charging & Range
How far can I go?
Our new electric vehicles based on the modular electric kit drive (MEB) will be introduced in 2019. The ID. Family will be able to achieve ranges of approx. 200 up to in excess of 340 miles with the new WLTP standard depending on the battery size and body style of the particular vehicle.
WLTP stands for Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure and is a new standardised global test procedure that is more oriented towards everyday driving behaviour.
How do I charge my vehicle?
A Wallbox is a high-power socket that is mounted on the wall for use at home. This is an optional extra and currently supplies you with a maximum charging output of 11 kW. If you charge your electric car at an optional Wallbox, you simply need to connect the charging cable’s plug to the socket on your vehicle and it will start to charge.
It is equally convenient to charge at charging stations at work or when you’re out at the shops. These usually have a tethered charging cable. But if there isn’t one provided, you can simply use the charging cable supplied with your vehicle, which can be easily kept in the boot.
Where can I charge?
Filling up at home.
Your electric car can charge while you sleep.
Imagine getting into your electric vehicle in the morning and starting the day full of energy. While you’ve been resting overnight, your car has also been recharging. All you need for this is an optional mains charging cable. It enables you to charge at any domestic socket.
If you are renting rather than living in your own house or if you own an apartment in a shared building and park on the street, charging can seem more difficult as we don’t have a public charging infrastructure in every residential area. The easiest option is to charge at work if there is a suitable charger in the car park. The advantage of this option is that if you commute by car (travelling in a total distance of around 50km a day), you will only need to charge once a week. You can do this in the morning or in the afternoon whilst you’re at work.
Charging at work.
Your electric car can charge while you work.
Increasing numbers of employers are gradually electrifying their vehicle fleets and company cars. Many employers are setting up charging infrastructures and are now offering their staff the option to charge their electric cars or plug-in hybrids at a company charging station. The ideal solution is to do this during your working hours.
Go shopping while the car is charging.
Run your errands with peace of mind. In the meantime, your car is charging up.
Time is valuable. Why not use the time spent charging to run some errands? An increasing number of stored are gradually setting up their own charging stations.
