It only takes around 5.5 hours to fully charge the Volkswagen e-Golf with up to 7.2kW of charging power which equals a range of nearly 300 km for the Volkswagen e-Golf. Charging times for other Volkswagen e-Golf models are listed in the technical data below.
Charging is performed using a Type 2-plug. Make sure you select a charging station with integrated charging cable or a compatible mode 3 charging cable.
Your electric car’s charging device (on-board charger), legal requirements and the charging power of your domestic installation all determine how quickly your Volkswagen e-Golf is recharged at the charging station. Legal restrictions for single-phase charging at home: Germany: up to 4.6 kW of charging power; Austria and Switzerland: up to 3.7 kW of charging power.

The Volkswagen e-Golf is the fully electric brother of the classic Golf. The electric car impresses with a 24.2 kWh battery and a realistic driving range of 190 km. Please note that the range may vary slightly depending on road conditions, your driving style and the season (according to NEDC)*. You can charge the Volkswagen e-Golf at home at a charging power of up to 3.6 kW using a wallbox. With a battery capacity of 24.2 kWh and a charging power of 3.6 kW, you will be able to enjoy the full driving range after approximately 7 hours of charging.
You can charge the car using a type 2 plug and also at 2.3 kW with a mode 2 charging cable via a separately fused domestic socket. For safety reasons, however, you should avoid doing this in the long term, since charging your car from a domestic socket will place the maximum load on the socket for approximately 11 hours. The wallbox will not only allow you to charge your Volkswagen e-Golf safely, but also nearly twice as quickly as using a domestic socket.
