The Volkswagen e-up! is Volkswagen’s first mass-produced electric car. The basic model of the Volkswagen e-up! comes with an 18.7 kWh battery, which offers a real range of up to 160 km (according to NEDC). Factors such as road conditions, your driving style and the season also affect the range. You can charge your Volkswagen e-up! at home with ease using a wallbox. With a battery capacity of 18.7 kWh and a charging power of 3.6 kW, the battery will be fully charged after just 5.5 hours or so of charging.
It’s also possible to charge your Volkswagen e-up! from a conventional domestic socket at 2.3 kW, for which you will need a mode 2 charging cable. In order to ensure safety in the long term, however, we advise against charging from a domestic socket. The main reason for this is that charging from a domestic socket will place the maximum load on the socket for almost 8.5 hours. A suitable 3.7 kW wallbox will not only allow you to charge your Volkswagen e-Golf safely, but also nearly twice as quickly as using a domestic socket.
