With a growing range of electric options, there’s something for everyone in the Volkswagen line-up.
Charging your electric vehicle is simple. Just plug it into a suitable power source and it will charge up. There are several types of chargers available with installation grants available for your home. This will depend on what suits you.
Charging your new Volkswagen probably wont take as long as you think. This will depend on what type of charging station you use. At home with a 7kW wall box, you can charge your electric vehicle from empty to full overnight. With a 50kW rapid charger, you can add up to 100 miles of range in around 35 minutes.
Battery technology has come a long way since the first electric vehicle was produced. Now, you can go so much further. Range will be affected by some factors including air conditioning, driving conditions and what kind of road the vehicle is driving on. The ID.3 comes with the choice of three battery sizes. The ID.3's fast charging batteries have an impressive range of up to 336 miles.
Its easy for you to charge your Volkswagen vehicle at home, at work , at the shops or on the road. There are many public places and service stations. Some are free, while others have a small charge. You can view where your nearest charging point is by clicking HERE
You will be pleasantly surprised at how long the batteries last. The key attribute will be how often the battery is charged and discharged. When you purchase your new ID, we will guarantee that your battery will not drop below a minimum of 70% of the useable capacity value after eight years or 100,000 miles - whatever comes first.
Charging your electric Volkswagen is safe - no matter what the weather. As long as your electric car and charging station meet the legal standards, no electricity will flow until there is a secure connection and contact has been established. You can take your electric vehicle to a car wash or open the bonnet in the rain.
The overall costs for an electric vehicle is expected to be at the same level as a comparable engine vehicle - or even lower. With attractive prices and competitive leasing instalments, government funding, good residual values and lower maintenance costs, you will find the cost of running your electric vehicle can be affordable. The Volkswagen ID range is available with Lease&Care - which means all your servicing and maintenance costs is included all in one, easy monthly payment.
With Volkswagen Lease&Care, its simple. You choose your ID. and care package for one monthly price and a length of time which suits you. The package will be built around what suits you and your driving style. With all-round care, this keeps you on the road and takes the stress away from those unexpected costs. We like to give you choices. At the end of your contract, you can move into a new ID, stay in your ID for a longer period or hand back your ID. It really is that simple.
