Volkswagen hints at fast charging ID.4

September 15, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The German automaker has released another video teaser about the features of the new Volkswagen ID.4 electric car. This time the Germans decided to talk about charging.

The world premiere of the Volkswagen ID.4 is yet to come, so the German brand is actively stirring up the fans’ interest in its “green” ID.4.

An interesting teaser was published the day before. A short video posted on YouTube shows us that the German electric car will receive a quick charge function. In the teaser for Europe, ID.4 was connected to the IONITY fast charging network. There are no details about the charging power, but if you carefully watch the video, you can draw certain conclusions.

For example, insideevs.com reports the following figures: time for 84-95% SOC was 18 minutes; average power 84-95% SOC – 32 kW. The numbers are quite decent. Typically, most modern electric vehicles recharge quickly between 10 and 80%. But with the last percentages they often slow down a little.

The peak charging power in ID.4 is likely to be about 125 kW, as in the same ID.3. In any case, everything will depend on the configuration and battery capacity.

Recall that the brand will offer the Europeans ID.4 and with three-phase on-board chargers. Their expected power is 11 kW and 22 kW. Recall that the top-end Volkswagen ID.4 will boast a power reserve of over 500 kilometers.

Earlier, AutoTimesNews said that other electric cars can be charged at Tesla stations, and for free. For example, owners of electric models Volkswagen e-Golf, BMW i3, Renault Zoe and others can take advantage of the system error.
