We’re well on our way

Now that we’ve fully set our sights on a fun, exciting electric future for all, we feel like we’re off to a pretty good start.

Making the electric switch

We totally get it. Switching to an EV may feel like a big step, and that’s okay. If you’re curious, here are some of the reasons why EVs are easier than ever to get into. (Spoiler alert: they come with plenty of perks.)

9 everyday things that can take longer than charging your EV to 100%

“How long does an EV take to charge to 100%?” That’s a question we hear a lot. While it’s not as quick as gassing up (for now, anyway), it can be as easy as charging it at home overnight or quickly during a road trip pit stop. But if you’re worried that an EV might take forever to fully charge, here are 9 everyday things that can take longer to do.

Stay in charge

Like the one in your phone, a high-voltage EV battery ages over time. So, we included an onboard system (Battery Management System) that automatically helps protect your Volkswagen EV battery. Here’s a few more battery-protecting tips:

  • It may sound odd, but it’s ok to not fully charge your battery. Rule of thumb: keep it under 80% to hop across town and charge it over 80% for road trips.
  • Try to keep your battery charged between 20% and 90% over long periods of time. A happy medium makes a happy battery.
  • DC fast charging is convenient, but not always needed. Back-to-back road trip DC fast charges are fine, but everyday DC fast charges around town, not so much.
