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.
